You will be sian-ed when you realised you can't access certain website encoded with Javascript. But I was assured by Surface Team in Microsoft that their team is working hard to get Javascript working just like our phone's Java applet. But then again, he said it still depends how fast Oracle revert back to them with the coding to Microsoft team.

May be its Microsoft's plans to get rid of their older S2 stocks, before sp2 comes in. Then, those with s2 will be compelled to upgrade to sp2.

You do know that S2 & SP2 launched at the same time back in States. Both are second gen Surface tablet. There's no reason for Microsoft to clear S2 stocks as S2 is also still selling in the States.

Not like when Microsoft US already officially stop selling SP1 whereas Microsoft SG is lelong-ing SP1 to us.

That's the incredible thing. S2 and SP2 out in US at the same time. Singapore gets the S2, but not the SP2. :|

You are damn right. The lelong sp1..... I will not buy their stock for sure. Apple still more efficient than MS, though ipad still no USB and SD card slot (correct me if I'm wrong).

eh Javascript != Java

if possible try to avoid Java sites. Huge potential security hole.

For those on Surface RT/2, if there's certain websites that dun seem to work, try running the same site your desktop's IE instead. Toggle the compatibility settings if needed.

I know it worked for me on some sites.

Yup JS != Java

But most of the holes are patched as of Java 7 Build 51.

Some buttons are still not working in Surface 2 desktop IE. Especially website that runs complicated javascript with intranet. (i.e school web-portal)

If I get a friend to buy SP2 from the states or HK back to sg for me, will there be any usability/compatibility issues?
