So what changed?? On the Surface RT half that storage was taken up by the OS and recovery partition. Nothing has changed so it is actually 18 gig (3 more than the first gen Surface) of usable space.http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/support/storage
Since I do not know the relevant law...can you please state the law that was broken? Federal or State? Can you provide a link to the government website that quotes the relevant law that makes the alleged activity illegal?
