Surface Senior Manager Kristen Batch just moved to Seattle from Chicago with her family, and in a post on the Surface Blog she explains how helpful the Surface RT has been in acclimating her two girls to the upcoming academic year in new schools.
Batch writes, “Since I’m sharing my Surface with two pre-teens I’ve set up separate user accounts to prevent sibling warfare and give them each a sense of independence. The rule is for every 3 games you load, you have to add something educational. It puts them in the driver’s seat of their self-guided summer tutoring sessions so they’re less likely to complain about ‘mom’s picks.’ The separate accounts also give me peace of mind. I don’t have to worry about grabbing my Surface and facing a home screen that suddenly looks like a princess invaded my device.”
