Updated Windows RT on the Surface 2 – Slowly Catching Up To Become A Real Tablet

But not quite there yet. Microsoft’s Surface 2, selling for $449, is a much needed hardware and software improvement over its predecessor.

Galaxy Gear – *UPDATE*

*As predicted, and as of 11/15/13, Samsung has updated its Galaxy Gear to display notifications for all apps, including Facebook and Gmail, whereas upon release, it only displayed notifications for Samsung apps.
