Microsoft had a ton of new products and technologies to talk about at this past week's Build conference, but one area we haven't touched on up to this point is with the company's Azure cloud platform. While end-users are likely to be unaware of what Azure even is, Microsoft is banking on it becoming a major part of... Read more...
If it wasn't obvious before, it should be now: Microsoft is serious about the stylus. Ahem - "pen".

You have to respect that Google is trying to help its users avoid unwittingly giving away their passwords, but it’s a little unnerving that a researcher was able to neutralize the Password Alert notification so soon after it appeared. Google fixed the vulnerability quickly and immediately spread the word that a new... Read more...
Apple's market capitalization currently sits at nearly $750 billion, and it didn't get there by charging pedestrian prices for its gadgets.
