Will the final Window be a success or just shattered glas?

Yesterday Microsoft started the roll out of their latest, and according to them, the very final windows-10-presentation-eventversion of their operating system. It’s no stretch to say that the previous version, Windows 8, did not meet the expectations of neither the consumers nor Microsoft themselves. The tablet did not devour the entire market for laptop PCs, and we still prefer to use a regular keyboard when we need to do any typing worth mentioning. This goes to show how vast the difference between a deliberate business strategy at the outset and what eventually actually ends up being a success can be, even for a historically hugely successful corporation like Microsoft.

The software behemoth in Seattle has seemingly learned it’s lesson though, and is this week releasing its brand new Windows 10 to the public. The best part? It’s free of charge. Yepp, you read right.

The Verve has published a great article and review on Windows 10, check it out here.

The discrepancy between early stage advertising and the final product

I found out that Microsoft is working on this seemingly awesome new product called bHoloLens but shortly thereafter i saw this.

This is in no way groundbreaking news, innovative new tech is often marketed as more revolutionary than it actually ends up being when it hits the shelves. But i hope that the HoloLens will be the exception, because it seems really cool… 🙂

It’s gonna be a battle of the tech giants this holiday season!

At the E3 2013 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) currently under way in Los Angeles Sony has landed a few punches at arch rival Microsoft in the battle of console gamers.

With a reported launch price of $399, or €399 depending on which side of the pond you live on, it looks as if Sony is going to undercut the Xbox One by a full $/€100 with their Playstation 4.

In addition and unlike Microsoft Sony further announces no issues with backwards compability for PS3 games, and yes, used games will be free to play on the PS4.

It’s shaping up to be an interesting holiday season this year. Now, if i could just get my hands on BOTH of these machines i’d be a happy camper!
