The Morning After: What to expect from Microsoft’s Surface event

Thought the big tech events were over for this year? This week it’s Microsoft’s turn and we expect a lot of Surface news. These may include a long-overdue Surface Studio refresh and even a mini-desktop. First up is the Surface Pro 9. It will reportedly use 12th-gen Core i5 and i7-U-series processors (significantly faster than the 11th-gen parts of the Pro 8). However, don’t expect much to change on the outside. It’s likely that the Surface Pro 9 will be largely similar to its predecessor, with a 13-inch 120Hz display and dual Thunderbolt 4 ports.

There are some wild cards, like the previously teased Project Volterra, a lightweight desktop for developers building ARM-native Windows apps with AI capabilities. It may look like a Mac mini, but seems to be aimed at developers. We’ve outlined everything else we expect right here. The event begins Wednesday, October 12 at 10:00 am ET.

Super easy 1080p streaming.

For the Chromecast with Google TV (HD), it’s clear that Google hasn’t tried to do too much. As Engadget’s Sam Rutherford put it, that’s perfectly fine because the original design works well. It’s only cropped for 1080p screens this time. You get the same great user interface, a slick, compact remote for all the basics, and more than enough power—for just $30. So if you have an aging device or a secondary display that could benefit from a modern streaming TV OS, this is probably the solution.

Google just keeps getting better at this whole gadget thing.

These are almost all vehicles that Rivian has ever delivered.

Rivian is recalling 13,000 electric vehicles – nearly all of the electric trucks and SUVs it has supplied – over an issue that could result in drivers being unable to steer and control their vehicles. The company issued the recall after seven reports that a fastener connecting the steering knuckle to the vehicle’s upper control arm “may not have been adequately torqued.” The automaker hopes to review all affected vehicles within 30 days.
