The Verge Surface Review Joshua Topolsky from The Verge does an excellent review of the Microsoft Surface. It’s a pretty balanced review and you can tell he wants to like it but…. Anyway, no more spoilers, here it is:

ASUS Vivo Tab Spent part of the day checking out the local Best Buy stores in the area. More Windows 8 gear is starting to trickle out on the counters. Wi-fi is slow at these stores and negatively affects the consumer browsing experience. I saw the new ASUS VivoTab RT tablet and I have to say, it...

That was quick. The Microsoft Stores in the UK and Canada are reporting that the 32GB version of the Surface (without the touch cover) is temporarily sold out. Seems to be the most popular model.

It shows off the many ports of the Surface, including its MicroSD card slot, its USB 2.0 port and its HD video out port  as...

OK, I’ll bite. Microsoft seem to want us to discuss this so here goes. Microsoft seem to have teased us with Surface RT pricing briefly today. Just to recap, there were three options. 64 GB with Black Touch cover $699 32 GB with Black Touch Cover $599 32 GB without the Black Touch Cover $499 Real simple,...
