Idaconcpts

Besides Google Android, the tablet king Apple iPad is about to get a taut rival in Windows 8. A row of Windows 8-based tablets are to enter to the scene later this 2012. Microsoft has already previewed its ARM compatible Windows 8 and a dedicated app store called the Windows Store for it. Maybe, Google’s Android might not have overcome Apple iPad in number of products sold.

Microsoft Office for Android and iOS? Adobe holds the answer.

Next came the iPad , which for my money was radical in that it brought the innovation of the iPhone to a much less tech savvy crowd, and, I think, has altered our expectation of interaction with computing machines. Apple has done amazing things in the last decade, but they've shown what I think is the first sign of trouble ahead: their new(ish) requirement that all content transactions that happen* on an iPad or iPhone will be subject to a 30% fee. microsoft.
