If you are not fully aware of the huge explosion of small tablet device popularity, you probably have been living on another planet. Unfortunately, Microsoft may have been living on the same planet at the time they were trying to see into the future and build a masterpiece for consumer demand…the infamous Windows 8. When developers started creating the newest version of Windows, the most popular device on the market was the almost 10-inch tablet from Apple, the iPad. Microsoft mistakenly believed that was the primary size of the future and developed 8 to work best with 10-inch screens. Either the future was hidden or they didn’t predict it clearly enough because consumers wound up throwing the weight of their purchasing power behind tablets that were smaller and cheaper than the main 10-inch ones. The Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, Google Nexus 7, and Apple iPad-Mini soon flooded the market with their smaller 7- to 8-inch screen sizes.

Oops! Three days after Apple launched their iPad mini, Microsoft’s Windows 8 came out…only it was optimized for the 10-inch size of screen that was quickly losing ground to the smaller devices. Can the disaster be fixed?

To find out more details concerning what and if Microsoft is going to be able catch up with consumer demands, keep reading at… http://www.pcworld.com/article/2039685/why-small-screens-wont-cure-microsofts-windows-tablet-blues.html?utm_source=buffer&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=Buffer&utm_content=bufferdf3b3#tk.fb_pc.

Telefonica Digital is hard at work taking on the tech giants of Apple and Android in an attempt to help create a open web internet for users that does not require the use of the aggressively proprietary platforms from the big companies. Instead, the Mozilla Firefox operating system is used for new handsets like the ZTE Open. The Firefox OS is used to try to create a more popular internet that uses common standards across the board that are not proprietary in nature. This would potentially allow the multitudes of apps in the web ecosystem to be used by all regardless of whichever particular OS their device uses.

When you think about it, it does seem rather ridiculous that app developers have to make several versions of whichever app they create in order for it to be utilized on different operating systems. While this is an altruistic goal for the not-for-profit Mozilla, having a significant level of success remains “iffy”. Presently, the majority of consumers seems to prefer a closed web ecosystem and are unlikely to change their opinions quickly. Only time will tell if an “Open Web” environment is actually possible to create and sustain.

Sometimes entire business reputations can depend on the quality of writing and communication they produce. That is true whether you are running a Fortune 500 company, or if you are a one-man-entrepreneur-show. Having excellent readability and accuracy without silly grammar and punctuation errors has a lot to do with customer confidence in your company. In reality, that has been true for centuries. “Typos” are always bothersome and annoying to both readers and writers whether it is in an ancient manuscript or a quick Twitter message.

Technology has advanced to the point where most of us can check our work or writing electronically through word processor spell checks or online proofing tools. But in some ways, there is no substitute for the human eye (and mind!). Some errors in wording and context just cannot be recognized by electronic editors. In order to publish the most accurate information that is easily read, not only do you need electronic proofing services, using people to personally proofread your work as well will give you the highest level of accuracy possible.

Wordy.com offers professional services in the copy-editing and proofreading realm that is done by real people, in real time. This is becoming a more and more valuable service as the younger generations are too used to technology “fixing” everything for them so haven’t taken the time to learn and remember all the basic grammar rules and guidelines.
