Deal alert: Get ready for Windows 10 with a big sale on the world’s hottest Windows machine

We can’t remember the last time people were this excited about a Microsoft software release. It might have been ahead of the original Windows Phone launch, and we all know how that turned out. With Windows 10, however, Microsoft will look to actually deliver on the hype and apologize to the world for the disaster that was Windows 8.

If you’re readying a return to Windows later this year when Microsoft finally releases Windows 10, you can now get the world’s hottest Windows laptop-tablet hybrid for a big discount. More →

The Microsoft Surface wins its most high-profile iPad convert yet

Microsoft’s product placement strategy for the Microsoft Surface has generally not gone well, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t winning some genuine converts among the people it’s been paying to use its flagship tablet. If you want an example of this, check out Engadget’s interview with Seattle Seahawks star quarterback Russell Wilson, who explains in detail how the Surface helps him and his team prepare for games every Sunday.

Microsoft is tormenting America with its most annoying Surface ad ever

Microsoft has made a lot of improvements to its Surface tablets ever since they launched in 2012. However, the marketing for the device has remained criminally awful and the ad that popped up on my TV during football yesterday might have been the single most annoying ad ever made by anyone. More →

Surface Pro 3 Vs. iPad Air

This is Microsoft’s most humiliating Surface product placement failure yet

This is Microsoft’s most humiliating Surface product placement failure yet

When you consider how often we see Microsoft Surfaces on our televisions versus how many are actually sold, you really have to question whether Microsoft’s big spending on such product placement is worthwhile. This is especially true when such product placement backfires in hilarious ways, such as when NFL announcers refer to the Surface tablets coaches are using on the sidelines as “iPads.” However, it turns out it can get even worse than that because GeekWire has spotted a new Surface product placement failure that might be Microsoft’s most embarrassing one yet.

Microsoft might be working on even bigger and better Surface Pro tablets

After suggesting a few weeks ago that Microsoft might be interested in discontinuing its underperforming Surface Pro line of products — a report Microsoft has vehemently denied — Digitimes now says the company might be working on even bigger Surface Pro models than the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 released a few months ago.

Is The Microsoft Surface Dead? No

Microsoft refutes ridiculous rumor that it wants to kill the Surface

Microsoft refutes ridiculous rumor that it wants to kill the Surface

There are times when Digitimes offers up interesting and accurate information, particularly when it comes to supply chain news. There are other times, however, when it seems as though its writers have spent all week taking part in a $300,000 crack party. That said, between reporting that Apple plans to merge iOS and OS X earlier this week and reporting that Microsoft plans to kill its Surface line of tablets, Digitimes this week has reached a level of insanity that could only be matched by Gene Munster on a bad acid trip.

Apple may have dumped its Mac vs PC ads a long time ago, but that doesn’t mean such ad comparisons are over. It’s now Microsoft’s time to troll Apple with comparison ads, this time using the Surface Pro 3 to take on one of Apple’s most iconic laptops out there in the MacBook Air. More →

You won’t be able to stop watching this embarrassing Microsoft promo video

You won’t be able to stop watching this embarrassing Microsoft promo video

If there’s a better way to promote Microsoft’s OneNote solution and its new Surface Pro 3 tablet, we have no idea what it is. Several members of the Microsoft OneNote team recently came together to film a parody of LMFAO’s hit song of yesteryear, “I’m Sexy And I Know It.” Since they’re promoting the Surface Pro 3 and Microsoft’s great cloud-syncing notes solution OneNote, their cover is appropriately named “I Click It And I Note It,” and it focuses on OneNote’s simplicity as well as the speed with which people can take notes using the Surface Pro 3 tablet.
