We love this stroller! It is super lightweight and easy to maneuver. I'm beyond happy with it. The reviews say the straps are hard to adjust etc. but I have no trouble at all. The basket underneath the stroller isn't very large but there is a zip compartment under the handle bar that offers more storage. My only complaint is that the wheels are plastic so we'll see how they hold up. The canopy is awesome. It gives a lot of coverage which is great because my daughter does not like the sun in her eyes. I highly recommend this product.
I originally reviewed Windows 8 after only used it on legacy devices and a desktop, but now that I got myself a Windows 8 convertible laptop with touch screen I have to give credit where credit is due.
Using Windows 8 on a tablet is a real treat. After a week of use it has become my favorite tablet UI, over Android or iOS. It's interactive, smooth, clean and fun to use. From the metro tablet interface, on a tablet, you can easily swap between open apps, you can easily split screen any two apps next to each other, easily search for anything in any app using a universal search engine, easily add things like printers and print stuff to it, and also easily close out of apps. Every app closes the same way (swipe from the top of the screen down). On Android devices I often have to navigate each app to find the exit option, ignore the fact that it's open, or force it closed through the system settings. No confusion in Windows 8, it's very easy.
Also the ability for Windows 8 on tablets to turn into the full blown Windows OS experience on the fly is wonderful. Metro is wonderful for use as a tablet. If you have your a convertible device that turns into a laptop you get to easily enjoy all your legacy apps and interact with your regular desktop. It's a true hybrid. Offers a fantastic laptop, and an ultra powered tablet. Windows 8's design makes it work.
Using Windows 8 on a desktop is also a wonderful experience, but it does take a little getting use to the lack of a start button. Metro isn't that useful on classic desktops, but once you boot up and login and click the desktop tile you no longer have to see the metro interface again until you reboot. The regular desktop is everything you could ever want it to be, with an improved task bar that'll span across multiple monitors even.
Internet Explorer 10 featured in Windows 8 has also been a treat. I was a Firefox / Chrome user for quite some time, but decided to see how far I can go before installing a third party browser. IE10 has very interested me. IE10 in the metro interface is fantastic when used a tablet, it's fun, quick, and stable. IE10 desktop works great also, with color coded tabs, and settings that sync between the desktop and metro versions. The third party browser makers haven't come up with any valid metro versions of their browsers yet. Chrome just tosses the desktop version inside a Metro interface. I find that lazy.
In the end, Windows 8 and IE10 have made me a very happy geek. And these laptop-convertible hybrids are the first piece of new technology that has really made me excited for a matter of years. I always wanted a tablet, but I don't want a tablet and a laptop. It'd be a device to replace my laptop. Unfortunately with the traditional tablets I would have to make lots of sacrifices for it to replace my laptop. Now I can get both in one device. A fantastic laptop for work, and a wonderfully functional tablet for play.
