Surface Earbuds hands-on and in-ear first impressions

Today we got our first opportunity to give the new Microsoft Surface Earbuds a listen.

Surface Pro 7 hands-on and first impressions

Surface Pro 7 looks a lot like its predecessor, but works with the latest in AMD and Intel power - as well as fast charging.
