Microsoft just announced they’re launching their own branded Surface for Windows 8 RT and Surface for Windows 8 Pro tablets. I guess it’s safe to assume that the old Microsoft Surface is dead, since they reused the name and url
for the new tablet PC. It measures 9.3mm, has a 10.6", 16:9 widescreen HD Display, and comes with an integrated Kickstand and a revolutionary, 3mm thin, pressure sensitive cover that doubles as a fully functioning keyboard and trackpad. The Standard Version has a 1080p resolution, while the Pro Version comes with an amazing 4096p.
I personally still don’t see the point of the netbooks, ultrabooks, or new marketing slang of the day … Is anyone using them? isn’t a Macbook Pro / AIR and an iPad enough?
Awesome Viral Video ad by Samsung titled Seductive Motion, featuring their new motion controlled Smart TV.
Everything is going motion and voice controlled, with nice features such as face detection; which makes me think that voice detection (know who I am by my voice) should come next … If I say ‘favorites’ to trigger a list of my favorite channels, it should know to display my list, even if me, my wife, and my kids are in the room.
Awesome hack by StinkDigital
- they setup a Nike+ FuelBand

Buddy Media was acquired by SalesForce
last week for $689 million. Amazing journey and accomplishment for a small start-up, now part of one of the best companies in the world. But for Michael Lazerow the journey started much earlier. Michael has a heart condition and cheated death a few times - he opens up and share his story with the world. He made a video with a bit of his story, and bit around the acquisition, but sharing with the world the secret to life: conquer fear, and you’ll conquer the world.
Awesome ad featuring wwo of the world’s biggest athletes go head-to-head in a battle of explosive speed. On-court, Rafael Nadal’s supremacy is almost unrivaled, but against Cristiano Ronaldo and the new Mercurial Vapor VIII, things get interesting. Start serving soft balls, and slowly picking up… I want to see Ronaldo stop a 160mph serve with his chest in real life - that should hurt! :)
