Surface Go joins the family!

Well followers, I've recently brought the new Surface Go into the family! I'm using it as my primary device for meetings with customers, while my Surface Book serves as my main power machine for heavy lifting when I'm in the office. It's working great - awesome battery life, perfect weight. The size is nice especially on flights or while reading eBooks.  Stay tuned for more awesome stories, tips and tricks about my Go in future posts!

As a result, you can now also visit this website with a new additional domain name:

www.SurfaceGoBro.com 

How fortunate am I that the new naming still works with my Bro concept! LOL

In celebration of this new name, as well as what I hope will be a new set of long overdue content, I thought I'd share a great pic I recently took with the help of my Modern Workplace friends at Microsoft!  Enjoy! :)

Fragile Links in OneNote

imageWhile Links are a great way to set pointers for jumping to different areas of your page, and works nice on your Surface when using your fingers to click, drag & zoom around your page. But be wary of their fragile nature when moving your Page to a different location in your notebooks…

Ways & Whys to Lasso in OneNote

One feature often under-utilized in OneNote is the Lasso tool. On the Surface Pro, there are a few different ways to execute this feature since you have mouse, pen, and touch as options.http://www.clipartbest.com/cliparts/MTL/L5g/MTLL5gdTa.png See my video below for a demo, but here are the details:

The Ways

OneNote Desktop: Pen, Finger, or the Lasso Select button in the Draw toolbar. You can use the mouse to lasso or just select things with a basic square selector, but lasso is more precise (curves can go around other objects)

OneNote Modern UI app: Pen or Finger – no Lasso Select button (although Lasso options will show in the radial menu after you lasso something).
