You can preview the coolest product Microsoft has unveiled this year – here’s how

Microsoft has unveiled a lot of cool products this year but for our money the coolest one is the new Skype Translator software that will interpret what someone is saying in real time and offer you a translation into your preferred language right on your screen. If it works as well as Microsoft hopes, it would go a long way toward breaking down language barriers and allow us to interact with people in ways we never before imagined. More →

Video: Microsoft fires shots at Apple yet again in its latest ad

Microsoft is back to its old tricks again. The company still seems to be holding a grudge from back in the days of Apple’s “I’m a Mac” ad campaign, and it targets Apple every chance it gets in its various advertisements and marketing efforts. Last week, Microsoft informed us that its cheap $100 Lumia phone and a bunch of bundled accessories and services are a better buy than Apple’s iPhone 6, and now Microsoft is back to convince us that Lenovo’s latest ultra-thin Windows laptop is a better machine than the MacBook Air.

The fact of the matter is that the PlayStation 4 install base is significantly larger than that of the Xbox One, which is why a more permanent solution might be on the table. More →

iPhone Vs Windows Phone

Here’s the $100 smartphone Microsoft says is better than the iPhone

Here’s the $100 smartphone Microsoft says is better than the iPhone

When in doubt, attack the iPhone. This is a strategy that has been employed countless times over the past seven years, ever since Apple’s iPhone first came along and turned the smartphone industry on its head in 2007. One company actually managed to turn iPhone-bashing into a successful business, but it costs Samsung double-digit billions in marketing money each year to make its anti-Apple campaign work. Of course, most companies don’t have that kind of money to spend on marketing and advertising, so they haven’t fared quite as well.

Microsoft is no stranger to targeting Apple in marketing, of course, and its latest effort is one of its most curious to date. More →
