  1. A number of Surface Pro 3 owners have taken to Microsoft's support forum in recent weeks in search of answers as to why their devices are seemingly overheating. The issue appears to only be affecting higher-end slates equipped with Intel's...

    Likely to quell the constant headache that is consumers, complaining while "operating" with the device wrong.

    You're using it wrong guys! That's all that's wrong, we're done looking for solutions. No need for fixes here, we found the problem. </sarcasm>

    It's typical of MS's mentality, If it ain't broke, fix it - or - If it is broke (like Win 8) don't fix it.

    This could very easily be a software bug. If it is a bug, then nothing is "broken". They will release a "fix" in the form of a patch. Since this advanced level techno lingo is too much for most people we have to dumb it down so the consumers understand(sort of) what's going on. This, however, leaves a very wide opening for trolls of all sorts to partake in bashing.

    "Overheating" is normal operating temperature for Surface 3, so no problems with it.
