HP release 5th firmware update for the Elite X3

Kudos to HP for their continued efforts to improve the Elite x3 handset.
As most Windows 10 Mobile fans will tell you, 3rd party manufacturers do not have a good track record for supporting their handsets once released.
But HP, it seems, is different. As well as announcing some accessories recently (Barcode reader and POS solution) for the handset, todays firmware update (it’s fifth release) is now available and there is even a changelog to go with it !!

Samsung Gear S3 – First Look

My Samsung Gear S3 arrived yesterday and while I haven’t had enough time to review the device yet, I can say I’m mightily impressed with the build quality.

Here are some pictures of it:

Nicely designed box

Straps are easy to swap thanks to the quick release pins

It is a beautifully designed device

Everything in the box

Can’t search in Windows Store

The latest build of Windows 10 Mobile (14364) seems to have a bug where we can’t search in the store.

I’m sure this will get fixed in the next few days but in the meantime here are two ‘get arounds’ for the issue.

  1. When typing, use word flow instead of typing the letters individually.
  2. Use a url instead. Try something like AppRaisin to search for your app and link directly to it in the store.

Here’s a quick video showing the problem and the temporary fixes.


Hope this helps someone.

Bye for now.
