Waiting for Surface to Stand On!

I have been waiting for a #Surface for so long that, I feel like the new gadgets like #iPadMini are just making it hard for me to wait.

I feel like once I get the surface, I will feel the notion of sanding on some surface rather feel pad'ed mini side. It's not that I don't like Apple products but it's just I like the Microsoft Ecosystem.

No no, I do have Amazon Kindle and Samsung Galaxy for family and additional family members have Apple iPad and such, but for me, I like the wait for windows products.

I have waited to purchase the laptop of 64 bit with Windows 7 when latest Mac was available, I waited for Xbox Kinect when popular Wii was available and I have even waited for Windows Phone when obviously iPhone was available. My wait it seems is nothing to do with popularity but rather this notion which I see with unions or people working on particular car; that they wish to buy mostly the product or product that they contributed something in the making. For me it seems strange that, I didn't actually contributed anything nor done any beta testing for any of these products but yet I feel something about the Microsoft products that I just have to wait on them.

I don't know what it may be called but strangely the waiting on Microsoft products has satisfied my expectation and even when the product acts strange, I know just how to click, touch, change or restart, which leaves me strange to try new ecosystems.

I guess, in some what ways I can understand the notion that people say; when they profess there love for Apple or other products.

I know that I shouldn't say this, but don't leave the mini on the surface. :)

Update: Just got an email that Microsoft will be giving away the Xbox Music Pass (Value of $99) to the first 100 people in line at most of the local stores in US. Awesome deal, sad I am not going to buy the surface just yet.

Rosetta Stone: 2125 Error Message

Update 2:
It seems if you have an external sync hard drive or storage, setup to keep two computers in sync with each other, the tracking.db3 file will get corrupted. Even if the sync feature is only used on a single computer as a backup method and not connected to second computer.

Make sure to exclude the Rosetta Stone folder in case you have any sync features from external hard drives, or service from dropbox, jungle disk, cloud storage or other file sharing application setup on your system.

Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
If you have something to share please post it below.
