It's hard to remember now, but there was a time when people were genuinely excited for Microsoft's ARM-based Surface RT and Surface Pro. When the company announced these products, they were seen as a much-needed opportunity for Redmond to spread its wings and tackle fresh markets and new challenges. When the actual devices arrived, the consumer response was, well, "mixed" would be putting it kindly. The Surface RT nailed the form factor for many people, but the high price, low storage, and slow Tegra 3 processor, combined with Windows 8's many launch issues, killed the product. The Intel-powered Surface Pro delivered the performance end users were hoping for, but was thicker, heavier, and had... Read more...

If there's a new gadget in the world, iFixit has probably purchase one and promptly torn it apart. Such is the case with Microsoft's new Surface Pro 3 -- the first device that the company is directly marketing as an all-out laptop replacement. Early reviews of the tablet hybrid have been quite positive, but if you're wondering what exactly is within its shell, the teardown linked here has the goods. The gurus at iFixit were pleased with just how slim the device was, but they weren't too keen on the adhesive that was used. Essentially, Microsoft added a lot of non-modular parts in order to reduce the overall footprint. That's not surprising, but it is a bit unfortunate for those hoping to buy... Read more...

This is a big month for mobile. In a couple of weeks, LG will unveil its G3 superphone at a press event in New York City, and before that, Microsoft will hold a press event of its own (also in NYC) to announce a new Surface device. Speculation has been that it will be a Surface Mini model to compete with the 7-inch and 8-inch tablets in the market place, but that might not be all Microsoft has on tap. In a support article on Microsoft's website that has since been removed, it was mentioned that a new update for Windows 8.1 "adds support to the Surface Pro 3 camera." Before we read too much into this, it's possible the listing was just a typo. However, if that's the case, why not simply correct... Read more...
