Both google maps and bing maps (then live search) were released months apart in 2005 according to Wikipedia. And this was on Microsoft’s long history of mapping, remember Autoroute in the 90s and terra server sat images in the early 2000s IIRC?
I think it depends where you are and what you want it for, in the uk I’ve always preferred bing for driving direction accuracy and birds eye images. Street view changed this a bit, and google is better for traffic and performance, especially on mobile. Although Microsoft did play with street view imagery long before google, only in Seattle and SF though, the new street slide stuff looks promising.
They shouldn’t have bothered competing with youtube, the tech doesn’t matter, its about users and no one has a chance.
Ads will go where the traffic is.
I had written more, but the cancel button is too close to preview on an iPad, so lost it, bugger!

I think the rumours about the extra docking pins are pointing in that direction, some sort of keyboard dock with extra battery, which would suggest a much more solid weighty laptop like dock.
Why do you think it has anything to do with marketing? I’m sure if they had capacity to make more they would’ve released earlier.
Does the US price of $899 include any taxes, and if so at what rate?
If not, then it costs the same (well £9 more, but that’s easily justified), the ex VAT price is £599 and the dollar conversion £590.
I don’t think it’s overpriced at all, however, I do think its just a bit too late given Haswell’s potential

I too hate these things, especially the vibrate you get when pressing them.
Mine are also broken, they go insane when I charge the device from the wall and try and use it at the same time, they just start activating themselves.
Has that changed recently?
I can search for mail on the server with my 7.8 device, at least I could last time I tried.
Should really be authentically digital, Microsoft mean it as being authentic to the medium, it’s not trying to be something it’s not, not that they invented it.
Are the summaries any good? I never got round to playing with Summly.
