It must be a slow news day over at Apple Insider where they have chosen to present a mistake in an advertisement to try and slam the new Surface 2. You see according to them, the ad shows Excel making a mistake in addition. This somehow translates to Microsoft being bad and Excel being worse than numbers. The author of the piece quickly went about showing how much better Numbers was by using it to calculate the same sum and they came up with the correct number. The logical leap here is something staggering considering it is not a photo of the surface, but a piece of graphic art.
Considering that the information about upcoming Microsoft's tablet are leaking like crazy, it was only a matter of time when they will release the date of presentation of new devices. This will happen on September 23rd at an event in New York, and the invitations for the event have already been sent.
With all of the focus on the Samsung V Apple case recently there have been some interesting happenings in the Microsoft house that many of you might find interesting. It seems that Microsoft has made a few interesting moves lately; at least one that they obviously regret and a couple that they hope will help their position with their partners and their upcoming release of Windows 8. As most of you already know Windows 8 is set for release in October of this year and should hit the market with a healthy selection of products which are designed just for the new cloud based and touch centric OS.
