My Time with Windows 8

As some of you may know, Microsoft announced and released the consumer preview version of their highly anticipated Windows 8 this week. Being the avid Microsoft fan-boy that I am I immediately installed it on my PC and my Windows tablet. Hit the break to find out the details on Microsoft’s foray into the tablet market, and my impressions on this bold new direction. (more…)

Game Changing? More like ground-breaking, revolutionary, and any other adjective you can imagine!

To say that today’s WWDC keynote was merely “game-changing” doesn’t cover the full scope of what we just witnessed. I haven’t seen a company on a roll like this in a long time. How Apple has managed to not only revolutionize the computer, smartphone, and tablet industry but to single-handedly keep “one-upping” themselves is amazing. Not only have they defined where the bar for smartphones and tablets are, they’ve outdone themselves yet again. Three major product announcements were made today by Apple: OS X Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud. While this blog won’t focus on the particulars of Lion (other than their phenomenal $29.99 price tag!) we will cover the two biggest changes to mobile in awhile. First up: iOS 5.

What Can Microsoft do to Get Back in the Game?


Well it’s come to this. Microsoft has reviled the new version of Windows today, code named Windows 8, to a crowd at D9.

Chris and I were drooling at first. This seemed to be exactly what we asked for from Microsoft a few months ago. But then something happened, something I’m not so sure is good, but it didn’t look bad either. What happened you ask? Hit the break for more info on what’s going down in Redmond. (more…)

Windows 8 announced!

 

 

 

Well, well, well! Looks like Microsoft has just unveiled Windows 8 and, surprise! It has a tablet-y interface! A certain author here was hoping that Microsoft would go all in with this version and it looks like the company is definitely looking for that niche audience who still wants a full OS/Tablet Hybrid. While Walt continues to grill Steven Sinofsky, keep it tuned in here for a better look at the future of Microsoft and the unveiling of Windows 8!

Cell Radio Radiation Causes Cancer

So apparently it really does cause cancer! Today the World Health Organization stated that cell phone radio radiation can increase the risk of developing cancer. Apple is going to be peeved about putting that surgeon general sticker on it’s pretty iPhone 5. We’ll cover this more in depth as information becomes available.
