One report had it right the morning after when an analyst said the difference between Apple's iPad and Microsoft's Surface is that the iPad was designed to be easy to use, the Surface was designed to be all-inclusive so therefore more complicated to use. Microsoft's attempt to make a mark in the mobile space is wrought with half-baked hardware. Maybe they placed the needed ingredients in their latest attempt, but they may also have held it in the oven too long.

The contradictory arguments in this article made my head explode. the MS tablet looks like a "me-too" iPad (bad0 the Samsung tablet is "iPad like" (good) MS makes their own branded tablet (bad) Apple makes their own branded tablet (good) MS has worked with developers for decades (bad?) Google has worked with developers for two years (good) Everything you say against MS, you find other companies should praised for doing the same thing!!!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
