Microsoft is showcasing a somewhat different product in their Surface tablet PC that is expected to show how Microsoft is evolving within the market. They have struggled to find their footing the last couple of years and have lost out a lot to other companies – especially in the market for tablet devices. But if nothing else, Microsoft has shown they can survive the test of time and they usually figure out what they need to do to regain ground that has been lost. Time will tell if they are able to do so with the Surface tablet device.
This article lists 7 things the author believes Microsoft needs to do in order for the new Surface to both survive and thrive at the same time. Mere survival is never enough for tech giants like Microsoft and that’s a good thing! If they were content with just surviving in a difficult marketplace or troubled economy, they would fail to meet ever-changing customer supply and demand. Lucky for us, Microsoft refuses to accept mediocrity and whether they succeed each time or not, they are always reaching for improvements in order to offer the best devices possible to their loyal followers with hopes of gaining new fans at the same time.

Hhhmmm…two huge tech giants not playing well together? What a shock…not! It really should come as no surprise that Apple is in no hurry to facilitate the creation of a Windows 8 iTunes app for Windows customers to use for enjoying their iTunes. Apple dominates a huge part of the MP3 music world with iTunes being the most popular way for most people to buy, download, and play their favorite music. In fact, for about 10 years now, Apple has played fairly well with Microsoft for managing music and videos for those with Mac computers as well as those with Windows operating systems.
But that uneasy alliance does not seem to be extending to Windows 8. Anyone who prefers Windows 8 or RT devices for most things but prefer iTunes for music and video management is apparently out of luck for a good while. Apple is showing no interest in creating an app for Windows 8 users that would allow them to manage iTunes on Windows 8 systems. From a business perspective, that seems a logical move…maybe. Perhaps Apple has cornered the music market in that way for now, but is it worth antagonizing future customers by forcing them to choose between Windows 8 and iTunes? We shall see.

The New Design University of St. Polten in Austria has followed the innovative examples of the University of California at Berkeley, Stanford University, and MIT – at least in the realm of entrepreneur education. New Design University (NDU) will be offering a valuable master’s program this coming October that is meant for those seeking a stronger education focus in strategic management that is based on entrepreneurship and innovation. NDU will be sharing a format with UC Berkeley, Stanford, and MIT that offers international courses in all of the newest, cutting-edge trends present in the current entrepreneur world.
This master’s program is meant to allow those with bachelor’s degree in hand who want to start their own business someday. Instead of having to choose between the master’s level of education or starting their own business, these students can now work on both goals at the same time. The curriculum is based on three main parts. It consists of interdisciplinary classes that cross-educate between disciplines in order to provide information for starting a business no matter what field you’re in. They have also designed their classes to remain small with approximately 30 students only in each class in order to facilitate better interactive classes. The curriculum is meant to be taught at various dimensions. It’s not all book-learning, or hands-on learning, or teaching experience, etc. Instead, it seeks to provide education in as many ways as possible in order to create the best, well-rounded entrepreneurs possible.
For more information about this great opportunity for international entrepreneurship master’s education soon to be available in Austria, continue reading at http://inventures.eu/become-a-master-in-entrepreneurship?utm_source=buffer&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=Buffer&utm_content=buffere2360.
