Get a Windows Phone, says Steve

by: J. Angelo RacomaNovember 1, 2012
Here's to the crazy ones, indeed! Reminiscent of how an iconic ex-CEO once attempted to voice-over an advertisement for his company's product, Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8 ad screams of self-promotion. But this is a different Steve, altogether -- someone who does not exactly generate a Reality Distortion Field like the late Steve Jobs. Microsoft's own Steve Ballmer has narrated Redmond's latest Windows Phone 8 ad, with highlight on the personal touch.

by: Simon HillOctober 31, 2012
Google-owned Motorola Mobility is about to embark on two trials over its standard-essential patents (SEPs). It’s up against Microsoft in Seattle and faces Apple in Madison. Apparently there may be overlaps between the two trials and some of the pretrial rulings don’t look great for Motorola.

Microsoft planning more hardware as it attempts to catch up with Android

by: Gary SimsOctober 25, 2012
In the good old days, Microsoft did software and everyone else made the hardware, even on the Macintosh platform Apple made the hardware and Microsoft added Office etc. But those days are gone.

Apple do it, Google do it, Amazon do it and now, with the advent of the Surface tablet and Windows 8, Microsoft do it. Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's CEO, has told the BBC that the Redmond company won't stop at the Surface and that it has other hardware plans.

This means that you can no longer pre-order a Surface, no matter how badly you want one.
