Microsoft Skips Windows 9, Introduces Windows 10

Microsoft Logo

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) appears to have decided to entirely skip the idea of Windows 9 and release their next version of Windows as Windows 10. The company’s new strategy does in fact do what the company has been aiming to do for quite some time. It helps unify the marketplaces and apps while still giving people customizeable experiences depending on the platform that they’re using. So now users can use the same app on their phone, tablet, and PC while also being able to (hopefully) share data across those devices through the cloud. They are also bringing back the start menu and getting rid of the full-page

Surface Pro 3 – Surface Gets Bigger and Better

Surface Pro 3

Microsoft has clearly not stopped with their aspirations with the new Surface Pro 3 that they launched today. This is a follow up to their Surface Pro 2, which also featured an Intel ultra low voltage Core family CPU, except now you have a choice of a Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 CPU as opposed to only being able to choose an i5. The CPU in the Surface Pro 3 is actually the same as it was in the 2, which is a little disappointing but Intel’s Broadwell won’t hit until much later this year. Once that new Intel chip starts to pick

Toshiba's P55t 4K Laptop is Awesome, Too Much for Current Apps

As someone that has spent the good part of the last 2 years with ultra-high resolution displays ranging from 13.3″ up to 36″ I can tell you that as an operating system, Windows is simply not ready for 4K. On a 31.5″ monitor you can still appreciate the pixels and not feel like you have to squint to see things. The truth is that when I’m using Adobe Photoshop CC on this Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (3200 x 1800 resolution) it is incredibly clear that the software is not ready for high resolution displays and that the operating system and the ISV are both to

Microsoft's New Strategy – Clean Up Windows, Become Strong 3rd Competitor

Microsoft Logo

If you haven’t been following Microsoft lately, then you’re missing out on what could be one of the most significant changes of strategy I’ve seen in a long time. They have slowly been making baby steps towards reorganizing and reconsidering how they address mobile. I have been following Microsoft’s attitudes towards mobile since Windows Mobile 5.0 and even owned a fair amount of Windows-based devices over the course of that time. However, Microsoft made a lot of mistakes along the way and is finally making major changes to remedy them. And with the smartphone market being a virtual duopoly between Android and iOS it comes
