Myself, I have been looking at cameras for a little bit, but I have not seen any truly stellar deals yet.
The one deal that is intriguing me (although it probably shouldn't) is the Microsoft Surface RT + Touch Cover for $250. This is the lowest its ever gone. I realize the Surface 2... Read more →
Last week at CES, Windows RT-based tablets were virtually invisible. In fact, one of the more interesting devices we saw was the Asus VivoTab Smart, a 10-inch tablet running Windows 8, which will be available for about $500, the same price as the Surface RT and Asus' own RT-based VivoTab. Adding insult to injury, Samsung late last week announced that it's going to pass on RT, joining Acer, Toshiba and HP in the non-RT camp. Is this the end... Read more →
Surface owners feel free to chime in! I want to buy one...convince me!
Maybe it showed off the hardware, but it wasn't very informational otherwise, unless you were looking to form your own offshoot of "Stomp" or something.
So imagine my surprise when this commercial aired a few days ago:
Hey look, it's actual shots of the OS! Oh.. it's still not very... Read more →
When the first Chromebooks came out, they were overpriced, and ran an early version of Google's Chrome OS that was almost useless without an internet connection. However, Chrome has improved dramatically, and now allows offline access to locally stored documents and media files. More significantly, hardware prices have dropped dramatically. Samsung's recently released Chromebook sells for just $249, includes USB 3.0 and HDMI ports, and... Read more →
This holiday season is shaping up to be an epic battle for tablet manufacturers, with Apple's 4th-gen iPad and iPad mini competing against the Asus Nexus 7 and Samsung Nexus 10, Amazon's Kindle Fire HD, Barnes & Noble's Nook HD, and Microsoft's Surface RT, among others. With so many options, including some good tablets for under $200, will Apple be able to retain its market supremacy -- and if you're in the market for a tablet right... Read more →
The iPad 3rd gen has a dual core processor and only 512 GB of ram and the New surface tablet has a quad core processor with 2 GB of ram and they are both are comparably fast and responsive... Read more →

It's here: Windows 8 (and the Surface RT) officially launch tonight at midnight.
From the Microsoft press release:
"In addition to the range of new Windows-based devices available, consumers can also upgrade their existing PCs. Through the end of January, consumers currently running PCs with Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 are qualified to download an upgrade to... Read more →
Microsoft had pricing up this morning but has since pulled it for their upcoming and anticiapted Surface RT tablets. Pricing will be beginning at $499 for a 32GB Surface RT without a touch cover. The price jumps $100 for the 32GB with a touch cover and goes up another $100 for the 64GB with touch cover. Since the RT will only be working with Windows apps from the Windows Store that means...

Rumors are circulating today that the Microsoft Surface RT tablet will be going on sale for a MSRP of $199 this October. This puts it in direct competition with the other low-priced tablets like the Nexus 7, Kindle Fire and nookTablet. It also makes it one of the first mainstream 10-inch tablets to come in at such a low price. The Surface RT has the specs to compete with other budget tablets (check out a compare... Read more →
Unlike rival tablets, such as the many Android variants, the BlackBerry PlayBook, which I think is an excellent tablet, but I digress; and others that compete with the iPad, Microsoft has the potential to bring to market a ready made success.... Read more →
1. Microsoft needs to know when to stop when it's naming stuff. Just call it the "Surface" and "Surface Pro" and be done with it. "Microsoft Surface for Windows RT" and "Microsoft Surface for Windows Pro" might be more descriptive, but it isn't sexy. (And I think Apple made a similar mistake with the "MacBook Pro with Retina display". Yes, it's accurate, but surely that was not the best they could come up with.)
2. It shows that the OEMs don't have... Read more →
