Microsoft Surface 2: Will Windows Finally Make a Jump Into the Tablet World?

When Microsoft released the first version of the surface it was overpriced, lacked battery life and the rt model lacked complete functionality. The first surface pro had great potential but just couldn't complete with the cheaper windows 8 competitors. This newest surface 2 will have 75% improved battery performance, a newly designed hinge(the old one wasn't bad) and an updated processor. If they release another rt model it must be cheap to go after the big dogs but everyone is keeping an eye on the surface 2 pro model. This model will be running full Windows 8.1 OS and will be an incredible tablet if they can get their pricing right. Once this is released I'd check it out if you're in the market for a complete tablet experience.

Apple Iphone 5c and 5s: A Step Behind the Rest

Well the Apple keynote was today and to everyone's expectations nothing very impressive was presented. The newest, top of the line Iphone 5s is already outdated when looking at it's competition. Improving their processor and adding a sensor for unlocking isn't very new but they're banking on the sheeple to fall into place as usual. The Iphone 5c on the other hand is a very good move by Apple. By offering a cheaper model with the current operating system they can attract people who weren't willing to shell out the dough for their usually expensive new device. If you're looking for a cheap phone that is easy to use go with the 5c and if you don't like it you can always sell it for an Android or Windows Phone. Good luck!
