      It will have to do miracles for someone else I’m afraid. I’m done. My Surface is just about ready to head to eBay with my Lumia 920 and 520 this weekend. Burned for the 3rd time – not good. Early adopters truly do get screwed. Apple here I come back. Um, just as a note, there are some updates coming through tonight on the RT sitting here… not sure what they are yet
