While a rumor on Wednesday suggested that the new Air model would finally debut next week at Apple’s press conference, a new report states that almost certainly will not be the case. More →

How Microsoft will fight its way back to the top of the industry

Over the past several years, perhaps even longer, it’s been far easier to poke and prod at Microsoft’s mistakes than it has been to celebrate its successes. Those successes have seemingly been few and far between, but were mostly just overshadowed by the catastrophe that was Windows 8.

But it’s a new year, Microsoft has a new CEO and the path forward has suddenly taken shape. More →
