Microsoft Google cash-in continues with Quanta Computer

As you may have heard, Microsoft has a rather large patent portfolio, and over the past few months, they've been pressuring groups working with Google-based operating systems to sign licensing deals with them to avoid patent suits. The newest of these up until today was the Microsoft/Samsung deal which included Android devices and a play to have Samsung paying Microsoft per device produced.

Tablets finally undercutting $500 iPad, but will it matter?

As you already may well know, the iPad is not a tablet PC, it is an iPad. Thus is the brilliance of the brand-masters at Apple and thus is massive success the iPad has seen so far.

Fusion Garage Grid 10 tablets get $200 price cut

One of the things that I thought was wrong with the Fusion Garage Grid 10 tablet was the price when we originally heard of the offering.

The original ship date had been set for September 15. That ship date has now been delayed a few weeks with a new ship date set for October 1.
