How to set up your Surface Pen

After using the new Surface Pen for the last week, I agree with Microsoft that this pen is the “fastest on the planet.” The new Surface Pen responsiveness and speed make it a dream to use. I use the Surface Pen to take notes when I am in meetings in OneNote, and use it when I color using my favorite Windows 10 coloring app, Zen: Coloring Book for Adults. I am by no means an artist, but when I use the new Surface Pen, I feel like one.

Latest Surface Pro 3 update adds full Pro Type Cover support for older models

Why it matters to you:  Microsoft is maintaining its pledge to keep updating its older products in the Surface Line, and this one adds new support for Type Covers. Microsoft’s latest firmware update for the Surface Pro 3 is focused entirely on bringing various systems in line with the Surface Pro Type Cover and Surface Pro Signature Type Covers. It doesn’t add anything revolutionary, but this update does improve compatibility and has no effect on battery life or security.

CHiP Promises Fresh Cookies in 10 Minutes

A good cookie should never be too far from reach, or at least that’s what the crew at CHiP thinks. The company has developed a machine and app that allows users to get fresh-baked cookies into their hands (read: mouths) in 10 minutes.

Those cookies come from pods—yes, like Keurig—and are baked in a slow cooker-looking device that also happens to resemble a grown-up version of an Easy Bake Oven.

I bought a new Surface with the Surface Plus program | On MSFT

Surface Plus

I purchased the Surface Type Cover and pre-ordered the Surface Pen separately, so those items are not included in my monthly payments. I am a Surface Pro fan and I look forward to being able to get the next new Surface Pro device when it comes out. I may choose to get the next iteration of the Surface Book or maybe the next Surface Laptop, but the point is, I have options with the Surface Plus Program. The Surface Plus Program gives you a way to get what you want.

Check out the official website for more information about the Surface Plus program.
