I wonder if the necessary Bing datasets for the UK aren't ready yet. Bing in the UK has always lagged behind the US version.
I'm liking everything I see in the upgrade so far. Just need to find some more apps that support transparent tiles, so that I can get more of that cool background effect on the start screen.
As a developer for a large corp, I enjoy the privilege of a VS Ultimate licence for my work.
However as a hobbyist developer at home, I say Microsoft needs to scrap the various VS SKU's and just have a fully featured version on a $99 subscription.
I bought this. No regrets. Simply amazing piece of kit. Turn many a contractor green with envy :)
All MS products and VS look sublime.
The only problem I've had is I do a lot of Java / Android development also. I use IntelliJ IDEA and I have to cap the hidpi arewareness of that application, then edit the IDE's font settings to make up for the scaling. Bit of a ball ache but well worth it once you set it up. Text just melts on and off the screen, the only thing I've seen come close to it is a Retina MBP
Additionally the amazing track pad dupes the screen. What I mean by that is you can swipe the pad as if you were touching the screen and it responds as if you were touching that area of the screen. It's pretty neat. Check one out if you get the chance.
I've been looking at that one for a while, and is my preferred choice so far.
I currently use a Desktop PC at home for my personal coding projects. Thinking about buying a laptop, so that I can code anywhere and not just in the spare room.
Who here uses a laptop for writing code and would they recommend it, if so what laptop do you use?
Even if I'd had a thousand guesses, I don't think I'd have picked Oculus as Facebook's next purchase.
I have very little interest in VR "goggles". I prefer my reality to be well, real and not virtual and the thought of wearing something other than my glasses on my eyes, doesn't really appeal.
It's going to be very interesting to see where Facebook take this and whether or not we see it renamed to FaceWear.
