• Microsoft finally stops screwing Surface Pro 4 flickergate victims

    In a well-orchestrated Friday night news dump, Microsoft has announced a reversal in its years-long customer-antagonistic flickergate policy.

    Flickergate, you may recall, is the propensity of some Surface Pro 4 machines to flicker violently. You can see the shake — dating back to March 6, 2016, mind you — in a YouTube video posted by Dmitriy1986.

    P.S. I stand corrected. The press was notified around noon, Nashville time, on Friday. So it’s a Friday afternoon news dump.
