It is becoming more and more clear that Microsoft really missed the mark with their new tablets. Although the RT devices are still relatively new and have been out for only 7 months or so, manufacturers and retailers are already slashing prices for tablet devices based on RT system. Clearly that is not a good sign for survival. Windows RT has added virtually nothing to Microsoft’s bottom-line and that is not a good indication for long-term success.

In spite of the very poor numbers showing they have have pretty much struck out with Windows RT, Microsoft is still committed to it and insisting it is going to survive and thrive. Few industry insiders agree with that position. Most believe RT is going to fade out altogether eventually.

However, Microsoft needs the ARM-based RT operating system if they are going to come up with a tablet that is commercially competitive with Amazon’s Kindle or Google’s Nexus 7, etc. They are unlikely to scrap the OS completely so it should be interesting to see if they can come up with a way to salvage it and turn the situation around so it starts making a profit.

Between Windows 8 and Windows RT, Microsoft has had a troubled year with little booming success for their new products released over the last year or so. This article discusses why Windows 8 is unlikely to be well received in enterprise – at least not enough to become a standard. That is according to Forrester Research recent data analysis.

Poor Windows 8 hit the market with high expectations that quickly bit the dust as consumers began expressing less-than-desirable opinions of the product. Microsoft has a good reputation for listening to consumers and what they need so will be releasing an upgrade (by the nickname of Blue) for Windows 8 later this year. However, statistics are showing that by the time Microsoft launches the upgrade, less than 50% of work computers will still be operating with Windows 8. Clearly Windows 8 has not been received nearly as well as Windows 7 so it’s a good thing they are releasing an upgrade that will likely restore some of the main things missing from 8 that consumers appreciated in 7. But in spite of the consumer dissatisfaction for 8, Microsoft is pretty much silent on what exactly will be included with the upgrade. That sure doesn’t help alleviate frustration very well, Microsoft!

Online file managing systems are very popular in the business world these days, and some of the biggest tech giants offer their own version of the desired filing services. The four types that are the most familiar are Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon Cloud, and Skydrive. But how do you know which one is the best? You read this article that focuses on the speed of each in order to give you the information that will allow you to make the best decision for what will work best for you.

The speed comparisons between the four provides very useful data about the four services with a very clear “winner” and an equally clear “loser”. Of course loading and transferring file speed is one of the most important aspects of such a service and Dropbox clearly won the “fastest” label by being faster than the other three around 56% of the time. The dubious “slowest” title was well earned by Skydrive which was slower than the other three services a massive 80% of the time. Google Drive and Cloud pretty much come up as roughly equal in mediocrity.

But if you are a loyal fan of the Cloud Drive, this article is particularly helpful in providing some excellent recommendations on how to get the best possible services out of Cloud.
