Microsoft "Microsoft's Surface RT is getting price cuts across the world this week as the company looks to boost sales of its first ever tablet hardware." Great vote of confidence on a platform barely out the door.

One could say the same about MORE Apple or MORE Google in our daily lives.

Garage sales are also occasions to find stuff which can be re-purposed. However, the lock on the Surface RT boot loader even kills any emerging thoughts along these lines.


Of the three, Google is the one who has most opensource products and they usually don't lock things down as Microsoft and Apple does. So, I don't mind Google being in my daily life even though they track and sell my personal information(who doesn't these days?)

However, I would love to see someone like Mozilla eat away a lot of marketshare from Google and others.

Just wait until they are done with Google+ cleaning.

Not sure how it affects me or others who simply don't use that service. If they start shoving it down my throat by not letting me keep it deactivated, then I will switch to another email service.
