It’s no secret Apple and Samsung are one of the largest patent battles in recent tech history. Things have gotten quite heated over the pas few weeks in the trial. It was just revealed that Apple is licensing Microsoft some … Continue reading
Microsoft provides monetization details for developers. In contrast to Apple, the lowest priced apps will cost $1.49. Psychologically, the $.99 price point has always been impulsive. I know many would think it is no big deal to spend “a dollar.” … Continue reading
The “upgrade” moves your files over to the new look and feel, and doesn’t include new versions of software like most Mac upgrades. But, the price point and marketing set this up to be a big win for the company, … Continue reading
Microsoft has come out and said that during the initial development of its new Surface Table there was an “underground bunker” for designing. While this is typical for Apple, it is a bit of a change for Microsoft who, as … Continue reading
The Windows 8 announcement has jipped some current Nokia handset owners, including myself. I understand why — my device doesn’t support most of the capabilities the new software includes (NFC support, shared core). No beef with that, and I’m happy … Continue reading
Joshua Topolsky: There is a gray area that exists for me with the iPad. I love using it to read, to browse the web, to share content, to occasionally create content. But there is a moment when I have to … Continue reading
While the innovation is with the software and accessories, but the tablet itself looks slick and elegant. It will be available in Intel and ARM (with WinRT), but the former tablet has USB 3.0 and a tactile keyboard cover.
Competes with both the Wii U and Airplay, offering some interesting functionality as well. From Bryan Bishop on the Verge: Game of Thrones was demonstrated as an example, with the Smart Glass app displaying an interactive map of Westeros, pinpointing … Continue reading
Daniel Terdiman, on CNET: Leap, by comparison, can sense motion down to the most subtle movements of a finger, which the company says is 200 times more sensitive than anything else on the market. The system creates a “three-dimensional interaction … Continue reading
WPDS = the next big conference? I am really excited to see Microsoft bringing the big guns on this one.
A comment by Ed Oswald on the Windows Phone OS and increased fragmentation: Microsoft has chosen Android’s fragmented path against any good sense. While I understand this likely has to do with the drastic code changes under the hood, it … Continue reading
Tarun dives into the experience of the Windows Phone with the Lumia 800. Continue reading
Tarun takes an in-depth look at the history of the Windows Phone and Nokia, while also setting the stage for his own opinions about the device itself. Continue reading
IE is making a slight comeback with a .99% gain last month. This may sound pathetically minuscule, but the amount is almost enough to recoup their losses that they experienced over the past year. The chart also shows Firefox’s continual … Continue reading
The first comment from user “Top Gear” seems to hit the sentiment I had on the nose: Bad news for Android. Not so for Apple. People don’t buy iPhones because their carrier rep recommends them. They buy the iPhone because … Continue reading
Microsoft Applied Sciences Group shows how current tablet technology still has a few years before it gets to the point of actually feeling like you are painting with your finger.
Nilay Patel, The Verge: A quick look through the halls of Mobile World Congress reveals an endless number of iPads, quite a few Android tablets, and almost no touchscreen Windows PCs. But Microsoft is here in Barcelona promising that balance … Continue reading

After using the Xbox 360 Dashboard update for a month, Chris tells a little bit of the good and the bad. With this update Microsoft has made it all about the Metro Continue reading
Ed Oswald: The Ace will launch in late March, sources confirm, along with a marketing campaign that will run in the neighborhood of $100 million.
The wording of this statement makes it seem like Microsoft has nothing left in them: In the fourteen years that we have invited Microsoft to deliver a keynote address at CES, the company has unveiled some great innovations, from operating … Continue reading
