So I have spent some time with a Surface Pro 3 and thought a review would make some sense. As people who have read this blog for a while know, I reviewed the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 in the past and was intrigued but less than impressed. Those devices seemed like they fell just a little short of what was needed...

I saw this online and had to post it. Great review of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 from Joanna Stern at the Wall Street Journal. In her words.. Yes, Microsoft is confident that—with a larger, higher-resolution 12-inch HD screen, new keyboard, improved kickstand and $799 starting price—its new Surface Pro 3 tablet can...

pokki logo So this is something a little (lot) different. Even though this blog is focused like a laser on Windows 8, I came across a company and a product that you might just want to check out. The company name is Sweetlabs and they were founded in 2008 to “empower developers to reach new users and monetize great...

I found this video online that you guys might be interested in. Paul Thurrott is a veteran Windows 8 tech journalist and analyst and his analysis is usually very good.

From the boot, it is readily apparent that Windows 8 is inspired by Windows Mobile 7, using the same UI style...

Last week, a slew of software designers and journalists in Anaheim, California were treated to a preview of Windows’ latest operating system – Windows 8. Many of these software designers and journalists, along with major news networks such as CNN and CNET have claimed that the newest addition will be hard to...

Microsoft has always marched at the beat of its own drum, but now that smartphones and tablets dawn the decline of the PC era, it just has to leverage with the trend. Otherwise, it will continue to lose the better fraction of the market to Apple, if not lose the game altogether. After waiting for quite some time now,...

So I came across a very interesting review of the HP Touchpad..the potential Ipad competitor from HP. What’s funny is the way the reviewer seems so disappointed by what she saw.. The HP TouchPad tips the scales at 1.6 pounds and measures 13.7mm thick. Other specifications include webOS 3.0, “true multitasking,”...

So we’ve had a chance to see what Apple has up it’s sleeve in form of the iCloud and all that. We have a good idea what Microsoft is up to with Windows 8 so lets take a look at Google’s Chrome OS in play. Today, we’ll look at the ChromeOS powered Samsung Series 5 Chromebook. Basically, a Chromebook is a laptop powered by...
