I thought I might buy a Microsoft Surface (well, they run real Word and they have a USB port, so that ticks two boxes for me). They have had a hard time among the Applites, but the reviews of new Surface 2 seemed OK, and my old small laptop is now very long in the tooth.
Sold out in Adelaide. Never mind, I thought, since I was going to be in Brisbane last week for a retreat (see here), and could pick one up there. Still no joy. They are apparently sold out throughout Australia, and no new stock is expected for a little while.
Maybe this is a sign – wait for the new Nokia, which looks groovier?
