Does anybody wants a Windows RT REAL REVIEW ?

This the quick review I've posted on many Magazine and News Websites

I think most of these tech reviewers turn their equipment on once in a while and think they are able to make intelligent and useful reviews. Article headlines like " Windows RT is dying" or "no one wants Windows RT"  sells and this is the only thing they care about, getting "Click throughs".

I use my Windows RT tablet for business Ina average of 9 hours a day on average for: Remote desktop management, OneNote serious use, Project Management, Multimedia Content Management (multimedia Journal), PowerPoint, Skype, great PDF reader with annotation feature, MindMapping, Travel planning and management using 3 awesome applications, Shopping list (my wife loves that), great dictionaries used side by side with the awesome Bing News and other apps.

And yes...I have some fun with cool gastronomy and wine apps, game with Pinball FX and car racing.

My only complaint is no compatible 3G modem in the market. Ad...besides that I can plug many common printers, mouse, pen drive, scanner using the universal USB port, add my 32GB micro SD card... well I also use it to plug on my TV using a wireless keyboard (a very common one for Google TV hardware..using USB) to watch movies and videos....there's
more...using to se my thousands of photos of my dozens of international trips...straight from my home network accessing my two notebooks...so.. I was forgetting my two Bible Applications with noting and bookmark features. What do you want more ? Please, tell me Mr Reviewer.

Is it so hard to understand that what motivates people to buy Apple stuff is not the same that motivates people to buy Windows Tablets ? Apple is a FAD. If they release a can opener called iCan, millions of idiots just run to buy it. I could also write more about things I've done with my Surface RT, but it is too much for a quick reading. Sorry if my English is far from perfect. My native language is Portuguese.


  1. Oi Cau! I've had a Windows RT since they were released and I can't say that I use it as much as I used my iPad. The main reason for my lack of use is not the RT user experience per se (as I think the dynamic tiles are great!), I mainly stopped using it because the amount of apps available in the Windows marketplace are simply not enough in comparison to the Apple Store. It's a simple fact that start-ups still do not consider developing for the RT as much as they consider developing primarily for iOs and Android -- I think Microsoft needs to be blamed for this as they took SO LONG to enter the mobile OS market. So, I agree with you, in principle, that the RTs initial screen is superior to that of the iPad or other Android OSs, but I don't agree that Apple is a fad. A fad is a transient thing that's here one day and gone the next. Apple, for all their mistakes and errors, has effectively transformed how we relate to personal technology and they deserve kudos for that. Cheers!

    1. Hey F.Wesley, good to see you around dude and thanks for your comment. I don't know when you stopped to use your Surface, but apps is cooking each and every day. Comparing to when I've bought my Surface and now, there are not only lots of new app, but the existed ones got huge improvements. If you are looking for those entertaining and cool apps, there are just a few comparing to iOs and Android stuff, but look on business apps. Serious CRM, Business Intelligence, project management and other serious stuff. There's more on Windows FT. You are right about a fad is a transient thing, what I mean is that Apple has all the spotlight and anything it makes or does, sells immediately, no matter what it is, and the really deserve kudos for that...real innovation. But its more about emotional decision. I personally don't buy tech based on emotion, from a mobile phone to a expensive computer. Mobile stuff became more an entertainment thing than something for serious work use. I can sure state that 95% of my friends who have iPhone and iPad, does only social web sites, email and some fun/photo/video apps...nothing more. I don't think this is the Windows user profile.

    2. Oops..published before finished.. well...hope you keep posting your comments. Take care F.W.

  2. Thank you for your reviews. I typed in reviews for this tablet because I wanted something to take with me to class for notes because I am a slow writer and I find that I do better when I have something to type on. My laptop is extremely bulky, and I REFUSE to join the iPad fad-nation. I personally have nothing against Apple, but I am no fan of their products. I have survived without having one product made by them. Ok, enough with my small rant about Apple. I saw this tablet, Microsoft Surface, online for a sweet deal, not too hard on the college student budget (trust me, I am stingy! and I hate spending unnecessary money). After reading though this entire blog, I (after getting use to your English :) ), have fallen in love with the Surface without even owning it yet. I could care less about the lack of apps, as long as I have the basics that I can get with Microsoft (a program I am a strong supporter of) I am fine. This tablet is to be used for school purposes mainly, so I don't need other things on there slowing it down.

    Thanks! I will even donate a few dollars to your blog!
