Microsoft Surface vs. Apple iPad

Microsoft’s Surface is still getting mistaken for an iPad by NFL announcers after a $400M deal

Microsoft’s Surface is still getting mistaken for an iPad by NFL announcers after a $400M deal

It’s no secret that Microsoft has struggled to gain significant momentum with its Surface line of tablets, but it certainly doesn’t help when paid professionals can’t even get the name right on national television. Over a year ago, Microsoft announced a $400 million partnership with the NFL which would bring interactive content exclusively to the Xbox One. It also put Surface Pro 2 tablets into the hands of coaches and players on the sidelines, but there’s one thing Microsoft didn’t account for: none of the announcers seem to know what a Surface is.

Galaxy Note Vs. iPad

The Galaxy Note didn’t ‘kill’ the iPhone… but it may be hurting the iPad

The Galaxy Note didn’t ‘kill’ the iPhone… but it may be hurting the iPad

It has been clear for a year that tablet market growth has been slowing down a lot faster than anyone expected. But nevertheless, the latest IDC numbers are a stiff shock. The firm’s previous forecast for 12% tablet sales growth this year was already really low considering how hot the growth was as recently as in 2013, when the segment expanded by more than 50%. But now IDC has cut its projection in half, as the brand-new estimate for 2014 global tablet sales growth is a pitiful 6.5%. What’s even more stunning is that no growth is expected to take place in North America and Europe during this year. More →

Apple has figured out a brilliant way to wirelessly charge iPhones, iPads and iWatches

Apple is constantly trying to improve the battery performance of its devices, including iPhone, iPad and MacBook, working on various ways to either increase efficiency or provide alternative charging methods.
