Surface Music Kit Show up in eBay with Only $11.99

Do you have the memory about Surface Music Kit, the unreleased accessory from Microsoft’s now-abandoned family of blade concepts for its Surface devices, now has popped up on eBay recently.

And the popped up Surface Music Kit of Microsoft is only on sale for $11.99 dollars on eBay, and you can go and purchase it then.

Back during the launch of the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in 2013, Microsoft showed off what was to be the first in a line of accessories, called blades, for the Surface family. Called the Surface Music Kit, the blade would take the spot of the keyboard on a Surface device and give access to touch sliders and buttons to help with music creation and remixes.

This is such cool music device, but it is unknown why Microsoft abandoned it at that year. Microsoft, though, is always doing things unexpectedly, not long ago, the Forward Cut Surface Mini just appeared in the leak pictures.

The Surface Music Kit quires to work together with the independent Surface Music Kit APP, which automatically turn on when connected to the blade, and it can be configured in more detail in the software. From there, the app, combined with the 16 keys and sliders on the blade, let you do things like loop and mute tracks with a tap. The keys are also pressure sensitive, so you can do some pretty unique things from within the software.

Last but not the least you should have known, according to the official, the blade supports Surface Pro (original), Surface 2, and Surface Pro 2.

According to the developer of a tool that blocks such upgrades, Microsoft has been preparing Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PCs for a more aggressive Windows 10 upgrade strategy that the company will kick off shortly.

“Over Thanksgiving weekend I started getting reports that the Windows Update ‘AllowOSUpgrade’ setting was getting flipped back on on a number of peoples’ PCs, and it keeps re-setting itself at least once a day if they switch it back off,” said Josh Mayfield, the software engineer who created GWX Control Panel. The tool was originally designed to make the “Get Windows 10″ (hence GWX) applet go away after Microsoft installed it on consumer and small business Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs starting in March, then activated in June.
