Windows Surface Pro went on sale last week and no one was sure how the public would react to the new device. The Windows RT didn’t sell wonderfully, but it also wasn’t terrible. Knowing that, some people expected doom and gloom with the Surface Pro’s release. Were people still excited? Maybe they were just waiting for the Pro instead of purchases a truncated version of Windows 8 in tablet form. That seems to be the case, at least with its immediate release. Several businesses has announced that their stock of the 128GB version of the Surface has sold out, leaving the 64GB version still scattered about at some locations.

After Thanksgiving I realized just how much I used my phone for recipes and cooking. I made mixed drinks, desserts and even whole meals using various apps on my phone, tablet and Windows 8 device. Relatives of mine, who are tech deficient in a few ways, were amazed such tools have been available for some time. One was even amazed their favorite recipe website had it’s own app. So here are TheBlueDot’s favorite cooking/recipe apps!
