Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Surface Pro 3: the tablet that can replace a notebook
The new Surface Pro 3 [link] is the third installment of Microsoft's tablet/notebook device. 

MSFT is positioning their newest device, the Surface Pro 3 vs MacBook Air first, iPad second. Targeting business professionals first, consumers second. I think this is a good move as it plays to their strengths. It would have been nice to get LTE built-in on the device though. The stylus is a nice addition for artists and note taking. 

I wish they picked a different genre of EDM.

The pricing is kinda steep though, it starts at US$799 and goes up to US$ 1,949 and that is sans the Surface Pro Type Cover which is US$ 129. I guess they want to make enough money to cover that Surface RT write off [link] ;-)

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
