I wish -- But, I'd have to burn vacation time to do it but I'm already burning Vac time to go to hte meet-up so WAF is pretty low right now on the idea :) so for right now I'm only a "Maybe" :wacko:


What time are you planning to be there on the 26th?

Joe - you need me to get you one?


I'll probably get there pretty early and get in line (if there is a line!)


I appreciate the offer but I'd like to see their HW in person first. Still trying to figure out a way to get down there Fri. :)


I assume they wouldn't open till 10am but you're right there could be huge crowds there -- then again.................

I was by there today. The mall opens at 6 for walkers. They told me the pop-up store opens at 7. They had boxes outside the kiosk with labels on the order of "Timed Merchandise. Do not show or sell prior to October 26, 2012". I asked if I could take a picture of the label and was told I could not. I took pictures of the kiosk from a distance but I can't seem to figure out how to add them to a post.

I called the mall this morning too and they confirmed that they open the mall for walkers at 6:00. I hadn't heard the store opened at 7:00.


I guess I'll get there at 6:00. JSox, do you know where in the mall it is (near which store) so I can park in the right area.


Getting excited!!

I didn't get down there until about 6 PM after work. They had sold out of the lowest price 32G models by then. They had about 10 Surface RTs out for touch and play, as I recall, with plenty of explainers around. I played with a couple for a total of perhaps 30 minutes. Very solid heft and feel. Impressive. Didn't like the touch cover very much, but the type cover was much better. On the other hand, as it has Bluetooth, USB, and wireless capable there should be lots of keyboard options. They didn't have any to demonstrate but an explainer said that it would work fine with a Bluetooth, USB, or Wi-Fi mouse. Without a mouse I think using the Office products would be awkward for me. I played with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint and was impressed by the extent of the functionality. They seemed to be pretty fully functional to me.

      the selection and quality of the windows 10 store apps   has taken a turn for the better in the last few months
      Software publishers have started to load in their win32 apps  in the Store
      The big one is  Itunes  of course.    I dont use Itunes per se but a program I use ( mediamonkey)  requires it to be installed to sync to Ipods and Iphones
      The big advantage of loading in Itunes this way  is that it leaves behind all the other crud  ( apple updater, Bonjour etc) and just does Itunes
      But there are several others that I have used and can recommend.  In some cases the author asks for a small fee for the program via the store.  but you can install on any  of devices hooked into your account and updates are handled thru the MS update process
      Paint.net  a solid paint/photoshop type program.  Very good program that I have used for many years.    This is the program that should have replaced MS Paint, rather than the POS  Paint 3D
      Libre Office   full featured office suite -  fork of the openoffice project  solid program  more like MS Office than the google office suite.  One of my daughters went to school using this and wrote her PHD thesis with it.  
      Irfranview  Lightweight handy image viewer/editor.     I have used this program for over 20 years !!!!     If I need to just crop or lighten an image to paste into another document,  this is what I use.   
      Inkscape   open source Vector drawing program -    similar to Adobe Illustrator  and visio     dont use this program often  but  since visio isnt part of the standard office 365 package,  a good program to have loaded up 
      Autodesk CAD Mobile    Dont confuse this for a full featured CAD program , but for viewing and marking DWG files or creating simple CAD profiles,  this free program works fine
      Please feel free to pass along other useful items you found in the windows store

      This store is on the Lower Level of the Fashion Mall at Keystone, in front of Abercrombie & Fitch.
      I would like to start organizing a line party on release day. I'm not sure if it's possible to do a midnight release since it's in the middle of the mall. Hopefully we will have more info in the coming weeks.

      Hey guys,
      Will/Can Nokia become a problem for WP? Can they be what Samsung is to Android?  I appreciate what Nokia is doing and understand Windows Phone is not as open as Android.  I see the exclusive deals that Nokia not Microsoft Store is making and it has me thinking about the future of WP.
      I would like to see what Microsoft does?
      Release a surface phone?
      Offer a Pure Windows experience without the bloat like they do with PCs? (Android is moving in that direction with the HTC One and Samsung GS4 stock offerings)

      Topic Title should be the city and then start some conversation about the location. Provide photos if you have them!
