Surface Earbuds hands-on and in-ear first impressions

Today we got our first opportunity to give the new Microsoft Surface Earbuds a listen. Because we're in a relatively loud environment here at the Microsoft Surface event in NYC, it's not exactly the most kind place to test something like this - but, shockingly, these earbuds did the trick.

Surface Pro X hands-on and first impressions

With the Surface Pro X, Microsoft's taken a new approach to the Surface brand with this piece of hardware. They've still got the kickstand, they're still suggesting that users work with a Surface Pen, but something's changed. With the imagery used to promote this device, you'll notice that the focus on Windows is ever-so-slightly de-focused. This is a far more mobile situation.
