1-2-3 Go! The race for processor supremacy is on, with all three big players firing on all cylinders. AMD, Intel and now ARM, all are bracing for a future where innovation in CPUs becomes the focus. But when it comes to market success, Intel based PCs have dominated for decades — even though the chip giant has...

The patents are coming hard and fast, will the device itself, next year? Solid chance that we are getting close to the launch of the Surface Phone within the next few months now. And that’s because we have been treated to a never-ending spree of rumors and patent details. Of what is supposedly Andromeda, the...

Hmmm, so this is what has been brewing underneath? Even though nothing has been confirmed yet, there is talk that Microsoft may give up on the Surface line, and exit the hardware market altogether. And the reasoning behind this is the culture at Microsoft. The company has already abandoned the Band, its activity...

If you’ve been keeping track of proceedings, you may have noticed that those Windows 10 ARM devices seem to have fallen of the path. Microsoft only gave them the briefest of mentions at IFA 2017. However, the company has assured that Windows 10 hardware powered by ARM based processors is still on track, and due...

In other words, don’t expect anything at all for the next two years, as Microsoft tries to refine HoloLens, and its holographic and mixed reality platform. On the software side, if nothing else.

Well, smartphones, rather. Microsoft said it loud and clear recently, that the smartphones are dead. At least, in the traditional sense, as we know them. It’s just that people have not realized it yet. In fact, Microsoft executive, Alex Kipman, the creator of HoloLens, made a bold prediction earlier this year,...

Even Microsoft can’t save the tablet market. Not when there is a clear and present shift towards hybrids and 2-in-1 devices. Figures provided by IDC confirm what we already knew. That the tablet market has continued its decline in the second quarter of 2017. A drop of 3.4% year over year is substantial enough —...

How quick the tides turn! Intel was one of the companies that was quick to note that the retirement of Windows XP had a positive impact on sales of PC hardware last year. But that was then, and this is now. Now, the chip giant has lowered its revenue forecast for the first quarter of the year, and that is due to...

Let’s start the week with some talk about Microsoft’s mobile platform. The lack of flagship devices has started to affect Windows Phone share, with shipments likely to drop. No new flagship smartphones are planned for the start of 2015, and the next few months are going to be quite a bit troublesome for the Lumia...

Things just keep on getting from bad to worse for Samsung. While LG is matching their every move in the consumer electronics segment, they are also losing their hold in the mobile arena.
