In case it wasn't really obvious, I've been using my phone, a #Nokia #Lumia #1020 as my sole camera for a while now.  I haven't gotten rid of my main camera, just wanted to put this phone through its paces.

My thinking in using the Lumia 1020 is to see if I can get compelling photos with a relatively simple camera.  If you use a big expensive camera you had better get great images or you're doing something wrong.  It take a bit more work to get what you want with less gear.

Having said that, the Lumia 1020 is extremely capable and doesn't leave you with many caveats.  In case you haven't heard, it's a 41megapixel, fantastic camera phone.

Let me know your thoughts.

I would love to get a Microsoft Surface 2.

There, I said it out loud (sorta). I've been looking at these for a while now and have to admit I find them very appealing. After using Windows 8 on my laptop I've come to like the windows phone-ish interface and think it would be very nice in an RT device. It looks like the Surface 2 fixes issues that the original had and is a nice step forward.

It's obviously not perfect...but I don't care. :D I really like this form factor.

Anyone using one of these currently? Thoughts?

As an employee, I have one of the company issued early RT devices.  I liked it so much (form factor) that I spent my own $$ on a Surface Pro.  If you have a need for anything other than consumption (web surfing, video, music, games, etc) you will want to go for the Pro.  At this time, I have no experience with any of the Surface 2 devices, but would expect they are just that much better.  Enjoy.

That's it, Pete.  I kept looking for the dual pattern characteristic of Escher's work!
