The MS Surface tablet is one of the latest entrants to the tablet market and everyone is wondering what is so special about it. As with any new device, there are hundreds of reviews that will be written and each of the review will be unique in its own way. In as much as one may read ten reviews back to back, there are some features that will always be missed and one gets to know about them once they have used the gadget for several days. This review goes beyond the traditional things that most reviews address and talks about three things that most people don’t know about the tablet. Read on and see how the MS Surface beats the rest.
The desktop is more useful than has been said
There are so many reviews that say the MS Surface desktop is next to useless but this is very far from the truth. However, after having the gadget for several days, one will realize how functional the Windows Explorer is. To begin with, it enables one to create and access all shared folders with computers on the same network. In addition, it is possible for one to map network drives and the drives will reconnect automatically once the tablet is restarted. This means that the gadget has more uses and benefits as far as the desktop is concerned and they that call it useless might not have discovered this trick as yet. To add to this, the Windows 8 operating system brings power to the gadget so the speed of sharing files is enjoyable to say the least.
The tablet has multiple log in ability
A person who has experience with any Microsoft computer know that the machine can be used by several people as all they have to do is create their own accounts and protect then with a password. As far as tablets are concerned, this is the only one in the market that gives one this ability. This makes the gadget really useful for roommates and families alike as they get to have their own private accounts that hold all their customized folders. In addition, every account can be customized as far as the settings are concerned meaning that once a person logs in to their account, they find a familiar display making it easy to use the tablet. If there is an area where this tablet has managed to beat all the rest, it has to be with this ability to create multiple user accounts.
The Surface isn’t anywhere
The tablet can be used as a workstation or second screen
As usual, Microsoft has brought creativity out by including a HDMI port that allows the user to output the display to another screen. All one has to do is buy a high quality HDMI cable that goes for as little as $3 and they will be able to transfer the display to another screen. The USB2.0 port that is on the tablet can also be used with any other gadget that will be supported on the Windows 8 drivers list. This capability makes the tablet allow the user to use a secondary screen that has resolutions of 1920×1080, and this is way higher than that of the tablet. It does not matter whether one is watching a movie or perusing through files, this is a killer feature.
Can you really tell the difference between a good guy and the bad news guy? How do you work on that anyway? Put on a radar or something? If you’re tired of falling for “players”, and this new-found phobia is causing some serious problems with how you deal with men in general, then read on to find out how you can tell apart the sincere ones from those who just want to play you.
The Trouble with Being Nice…
All men seem nice at first—until they start giving signs of wanting to get in your pants more than they want to know you. Finding out who the player is from the pack just got a whole lot harder. We’re not saying that you have to be weary if a guy is being nice to you. If he’s going out of his way to be courteous, if he seems genuine, then you should give him a chance. But if he bigs himself a little too much, never missing an opportunity to tell you how good he is with and that, how he’s better than most men you’ve met—and will ever meet, how much he spent on his car, blah blah blah—get out, and do it fast.
While different men’s
Ever met a guy who you felt in total connection with? He’s gazing deep into your eyes, telling you how much he understands what you’re feeling, and that he has gone through the exact same thing? Have you ever heard your heart say “This is it!” until his phone rings and he just has to take that call, or reply to that text. Does he disappear on you for days, with nary a word as to where he is, what he’s doing, or when you’re going to see him again? If the answer to all those questions is a big YES—you know what to do. Enough said.
The Lewd Comments Guy
Jerk Alert! Don’t even think about being friends with this guy, if you barely know him but keep on giving out these lewd remarks like he expects you to find it hot or funny. Let him know he’s not that special, will you?
What A Flirt!
A little flirting doesn’t hurt anyone. And if he only does it to you, then why not? He treats you more special than anybody else, and that’s worth falling for. But if he does it to everyone? Oh man, that is bad news. And also, if he keeps on getting in touch with his ex—or exes, for that matter, we couldn’t say it enough. Stay away from this player!
A little flirt doesn’t hurt!
In truth, there are some guys who are harder to crack, so make sure you keep your eyes open. It doesn’t matter how good-looking he is, but if he knows it all too well, and is vainer than you, what’s the point? You’re looking for a boyfriend, not a liability. Always remember that.

So what do you to do to make the experience working with a short tempered boss make it much easier? Here are the ABC’s on how to deal with your angry boss.
1. Keep calm- Whenever your boss seems to be so irritated with all the people surrounding him, try to think what you will become if you go up to his level of anger. Did you imagine how you both would look like if you deal with him just as he deals with his anger? You may get fired if you mind it too. Just stay on your post and stay calm. If he raises his voice on you, answer properly without raising your voice in return; and if possible, do whatever it is that he is asking you to do without any question. If you need clarifications, just wait a little while until his anger subsides.
2. Listen and Be Honest- Everyone hates to be scolded especially if you know you are doing your best to the job and to impress your boss. Never show your boss you grind your teeth or roll those eyeballs. You can do it behind their back. Just kidding! But let’s face it we don’t want that to happen right? So, the best think you have to do is whenever your boss is telling you bad stuffs that your ear does not like, listen to it because sometimes maybe they do have a point and if not well still you have to listen. Be honest if there is anything that you need to clarify and needs more specific questions that are related to the issue.

3. Think of the Solution- When an angry boss is mad and you came along the way and he picks on you. Always remember that, maybe he is dealing with something that is not really related on you but maybe it just happens that he is just really mad and disappointed. You yourself know that you are doing the right thing. So like the other two above, stay calm and listen.

Hollywood never runs out of talk of the town movies. Whether it’s an A-lister or a flunker, movies are always a good subject for conversation and formal criticism. The end of 2012 and the beginning of this year is a remarkable time for Hollywood films as it was able to produce high end production with excellent casting. Just when we thought that Hollywood is over commercialised, some movies stand out and become legendary, so to speak.
As 2012 retreats and 2013 breaks, there are movies which are really worth watching. Not only that it has a rich visual effect and excellent casting, but the story itself is rich with memorable lines.
My Top 3 Movies this Year
1. The Hobbit
It’s been 10 years since the last installment of the Lord of the Rings was shown. After a decade or so, LOTR’s hit the cinemas and received favorable attention. The story centers on Bilbo Baggins, Frodo’s uncle and the second one to find the ring after Gollum. He had an unexpected journey with Gandalf and their dwarf friends to regain a lost kingdom they once owned.
The movie is rich with virtual effects, realistic costumes and make-up that can really enhance the effect of the movie to its audience. Although it failed to reach LOTR’s income, it is not far behind and will make you understand the 3-part movie.
2. Les Miserables
The film is an adaptation of Victor Hugo’s fiction/musical and features popular songs such as “On My Own” and “I Dreamed a Dream.” These signature songs of the musical never fail to give their audience Goosebumps even if it’s done on film and not in a Broadway opera. The success of the melodramatic approach of the character’s struggle is dependent on the music they associate to it which makes it a very musical film.
You are here :Les Miserables
3. The Rise of the Guardians
This may be one of the best cartoons produced by Dreamworks. It tells the story about Jack Frost and how he became one of the “Guardians.” The Guardians are a group of fictional characters like Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and Easter Bunny who protects children’s dreams and childhood in general. If you want a child-oriented film that the whole family can enjoy, the Rise of the Guardians is a great choice. The movie has great visual effects, no dull parts, and completely fun to watch.
