Steve Ballmer Indicates Microsoft Surface Could Start @$300!


Earlier this year, Microsoft announced launching its first self-branded tab, called the Surface Tablet, but remained tight-lipped about its pricing. In a race of tablets with Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire, and Apple’s much speculated iPad Mini, Microsoft Surface Tablet is expected to launch in October amidst some serious competition. Recently, Steve Ballmer, CEO, Microsoft in an interview with the Seattle Times did discuss a price range for the firm’s new tab. He said, “If you look at the bulk of the PC market, it would run between, say, probably $300 [and] $700 or $800. … That’s the sweet spot.” This statement by the CEO puts an end to the rumors speculating that the Surface Tablet would retail between $600 and $1000 for the two different versions. But neither choice comes with a built-in 3G/4G wireless connection feature, which Apple offers in the same price range of its iPads. [+more]

Apple has also worked on offering faster graphics performance with A6 chip.

ARM is the designer of processor architecture, who then licenses it out to chip makers. These chip makers can then take their own custom features and make entire semiconductor chips. As Apple is a [+more]

Protect Your Privacy Online With Do not Track in Google Chrome


  For everybody who’s been concerned about privacy issues when using Google’s software and tools, here’s some great news. Google has now featured the Do Not Track (DNT) in the latest developer build of Google Chrome. Do Not Track essentially informs websites about when a user chooses to opt out of behavioral tracking.
