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. However, it’s still in an awkward limbo between a tablet and a PC. On one hand, it wants to be a tablet because it runs RT, the diet version of Windows 8.1, but




iPad Air Review – Worth The Upgrade?

Who thought they would call it the Air? In retrospect, of course they added the wildly popular Macbook Air’s nomenclature to the iPad. The iPad Air is indeed a slimmer, lighter version of the iconic iPad design. Not only that, its A7 chip is twice as powerful as the iPad 4’s A6X chip, which was




Nexus 7 (2013) – Can It Dethrone My iPad Mini?

On a recent trip, I found myself packing two small tablets; the Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini. I thought this was ridiculous. Packing two small tablets totally negates the point of portability. And I would switch between one or the other, which made things confusing. Apart from all that, it’s just excessive to have




Cheaper iPhone? Why?

Cheaper iPhone?…Isn’t that what an iPhone 4 is? It’s for the “low end market” you say? $0 for a 4 and $99 for a 4S. Some reports I’ve seen claim it will be built from cheaper materials, such as polycarbonate plastic. Many also believe that it will use leftover components from previous iPhones in a




iPad Mini And Other Stories

Aaaand I’m back to Apple products after a couple months of self-convincing that anything else, namely the Surface RT, could compete. I made the EXACT same mistake a couple years ago when I decided to put my iPhone 3G down to pick up the HTC Thunderbolt. I wanted to see what else was out there




The Tabtop Revolution

I am really liking these hybrid tabtops/laplets that are emerging. Namely those that have keyboard covers/docks like the HP TouchPad 2, Lenovo ThinkPad 2. I really wouldn’t be surprised if these hybrids become a new norm to replace the traditional laptops, at least for Windows hardware. The only thing that is limiting the growth of these hybrids is getting




Skype on Surface RT – So Buggy It Gets a Blog Post

There are bugs. Lots of them. Most notably whilst using the Skype app. People I’m speaking with sometimes turn green, but I don’t tell them to avoid confusion and hang-ups and continue talking to the green person. Sometimes my video will freeze and plays a 1 second loop of my head bobbing or nodding or




Microsoft Surface – If You Have One, You Know What I Mean

Since receiving my Microsoft Surface a couple weeks ago, I have had many thoughts regarding its pluses and minuses. I think it would be fitting to write this organization of thoughts on the Surface itself using the touch cover, and that’s what I’ll begin with. LOVE it. Love the touch cover. It’s a screen cover
