Microsoft had a simple formula for competing in the mobile space: Launch a Surface Pro device running Windows 8 for people that need a full fledged system for getting work done yet desire the portability of a tablet, and Surface RT for consumers who... Read more...
It's perhaps the ultimate Catch 22. HTC needs to expand into more frontiers beyond the smartphone one in order to generate more revenue. But it lacks the revenue to expand into new product segments. Years back, HTC actually tried its hand at a... Read more...
There's no reason for Windows 8 and Windows RT to be treated like second class citizens, so why isn't Adobe's free Photoshop Express program available for either platform when you can grab it on iOS or Android? That would have been a good question a... Read more...
