Disappointing results for BlackBerry Z10


It looks like sales of the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone are not what the company formerly known as RIM had hoped for. According to the analyst research house Cannacord Genuity and Pacific Crest, which gathered data from stores and distributors, BlackBerry has sold only 300,000 Z10 devices. This figure should be slightly larger at the end of the company's fiscal year which ends in March, but not significantly so.

Further analysis of Surface sales

microsoft surface

Microsoft proudly unveiled Surface tablets during the launch of the new Windows, even though many said that the release of devices with a completely different processor architecture (ARM) was a very risky move. Although the team from Redmond repeatedly declared that they are satisfied with its initial sales, the two figures released so far appear at odds; Microsoft’s figure of 4 million tablets planned for the 4th quarter is now reduced to 2 million. Now a brokerage firm, Detwiler Fenton, that allocates brokerage ranks, said that Microsoft should be happy if they manage to sell 1 million tablets by the end of the year. Detwiler says that Microsoft has sold between 500 and 600 thousand units so far.

Intel to Kill Off The Desktop? Not Likely


Yesterday there was a flurry of news posts with dire warnings that Intel would soon be removing the ability to upgrade your CPU. The news talked about the future of Intel CPUs and their associated sockets after Haswell.  When we first saw some of these posts they read like the latest Facebook update rumors, but as with many rumors there is a nugget of truth somewhere in them (at least most of the time). We did reach out to Intel, but as expected they were not able to comment on unannounced products and had nothing more to say. So exactly what is going on with Intel and the future of the DIY market, let’s take a look and see if we can make some sense of the rumor that is going around.

Huge Steam autumn and winter sales


The Big Autumn sale begins today on Steam. The whole thing will be closed in about seven days and for now it seems to us that the far more serious sales will come around Christmas and New Year. In fact, Valve has confirmed that the holiday winter sale on Steam can be expected between December 20th and January 4th next year. They asked Tamas Bako, CEO at Artery Studios to include their game Secret of Magic Crystals in both the autumn and winter sales and they even gave the exact dates when will it happen. He was keen to share it on the developer diary, so now we know that the autumn sale will take place from November 21st to 27th, while the winter one will be from December 20th to January 4th.
