- Microsoft Surface Pro's $100 Price Cut is Made Permanent -
Earlier this summer, Microsoft cut the price of the Surface Pro.
Originally billed as a back-to-school sale, Microsoft announced a $100
price cut in early August, and the price was supposed to go back up on
August 29. However, instead of climbing back up to the original price,
Microsoft on Thursday confirmed that the price cut would be permanent
- Samsung Galaxy Mega for AT&T Tested - Phonescoope
takes a look at the Samsung Galaxy Mega for AT&T. People were
aghast when Samsung announced the Galaxy Note in 2011 with its 5.2-inch
screen. "Crazy," "Huge," "Ridiculous," some called it. The Galaxy Mega,
as the name implies, dwarfs the Note with its mega proportions. It has
a 6.3-inch screen and a massive 6.6 x 3.46-inch footprint. It's not
that much smaller than some tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Mega, while
capable and powerful, is not a phone I would ever choose to purchase or
use myself. It's simply too big. Where the Note II lives on the edge,
the Mega leaps right over into the land of Can't Fit My Hand. Aside
from the size, the hardware is decent. It's a good looking phone,
though it would be nice if the materials were of slightly higher
- Windows Server 2012 R2 goes gold; launches October 18th - In

Windows Server 2012 R2 just like everyone else, rather than allowing
them to get early access to the software.
- Need to activate Windows 8.1? Use your Windows 8 key - With
Windows 8.1 RTM builds leaking out like a poorly constructed
bathroom faucet, you might be wondering how you can activate your copy
of Windows 8.1 and it's a lot easier than you might think. Seeing as
Windows 8.1 is a free update for Windows 8, users in Neowin forums are
stating you can use your Windows 8 key to activate and remove the
watermarks. It's that simple and multiple users have now confirmed that
this works. Windows 8 keys can't be used to install the leaked 8.1
builds though, but there is a key floating around that can be used to
install, then simply change that key to your genuine 8.0 key and
- Ballmer departure reportedly more sudden than Microsoft stated
- When Microsoft announced Steve Ballmer's impending departure
from the company last week, it portrayed the chief executive's decision
to retire as a carefully planned moment. According to a new report,
however, the chief executive's departure is more sudden than originally
revealed. AllThingsD, which accurately broke the news of Microsoft's
restructuring in recent months, reports
Ballmer's decision to leave was sped up because the executive's
leadership was viewed as "becoming a very obvious lightning rod," among
other reasons. The outlet cites "dozens of people inside and outside"
of Microsoft as the sources of the information, with "many" of the
unnamed sources being "close to the situation."

- UK Prisoners Love Tiny Mobile Phones (Video) - Made in
China and sold on eBay

and are coming with very low metal content which could allow them
to be easily smuggled into prisons past metal detectors. In 2012, UK
authorities seized over 7,000 phones and SIM cards from prisons in
England and Wales, and they don't want more of the small phones to
reach the hands of inmates and are therefore planning to bring about a

- Crazy New Yorker gets a digital tattoo viewable only by a
smartphone - How about a tattoo that's only visible on smartphones?
Crazy it may sound but one Anthony Antonellis from New York has
implanted a RFID chip between his thumb and forefinger. The tiny RFID
chip is enclosed in a capsule and has an antenna. The chip with a
storage space of just 1 KB has a rainbow GIF stored in it. Holding a
smartphone near the implant reveals the GIF on the smartphone screen.
Anthony can change the GIF to whatever he wants but a KB space is too
less to store anything considerable. Personally I think it's a stupid
idea just to go at such extreme lengths and make a rainbow GIF pop-up
on a smartphone.

Ballmer departure reportedly more sudden than Microsoft stated
Skype Confirms 3D Video Calls Are Under Development
Another thing nobody needs - clearly indicates that MS is still without leadership and vision, focusing on all the wrong things.
|Tom||(11:11 AM EDT - Sep,04 2013 )|
|Yep Balmer leaving is a good thing. MS needs some fresh blood in there. Get rid of the relics, bring in change, change that people want.|
|Csimbi||(02:14 PM EDT - Sep,04 2013 )|
|I understand they just bought Nokia. Not fresh blood, but far better than the one MS has in their veins...|
|Tom||(03:31 PM EDT - Sep,04 2013 )|
|Ya I'm not sure that buying Nokia will amount to much. Can't stand Windows phones so I doubt I'll ever have one.|
|Csimbi||(05:06 PM EDT - Sep,04 2013 )|
|Tom> Can't stand Windows phones so I doubt I'll ever have one.
Likewise. Though Nokia hardware is superior, so replacing WinDOS with Linux or something might be worth exploring.
