#firstworldproblems  I cannot copy photos off my SDCard onto my USB Key on my Surface Pro 3! The downside of a digital computing device with only ONE USB Port. Oh well. At least it's a USB 3 port...

I like the fact that Microsoft is going device agnostic.

Just to add to +James Gill / .@jagill session here at #MSTFEduCa . There's two translation apps that I've tried. There's Word Lens https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.questvisual.wordlens.demo for on-the-fly translation or Google Translate - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.translate&hl=en

Google Translate while not on the fly, can translate to much more languages.
Break through language barriers with Google Translate.• Translate between 9...

There is a translation app for iOS that translates to Cantonese. I don't see why there cannot also be one for Android.

It's the PNE! Playland is always fun. Plenty of rides for the little ones and classic rides like the old wooden roller coaster for the big ones. The Star Trek exhibit is neat for trekkies, but photos not allowed in the exhibit. Lots of costumes, models and facts about Star Trek. Even have a timeline to put all the different series in sequence. Can have a long line to get in, so get there early. At least they show Star Trek movie while waiting.
