I have been playing with Windows 8 Consumer Preview since last week. It is astonishing, and far better than the developer preview of last year. This is an important and transformative OS. At least as important as Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. Microsoft has something they can be incredibly proud of.

Harry Shum, who oversees research and development for Microsoft's Bing search engine, believes his company has now matched Google's ability to build software platforms that can harness the power of tens of thousands of servers. — 'For many years, we've really tried to play the catch-up game,' Shum says. 'And now we feel that after a lot of effort, we understand search quality problems better than before, and that if you look at Google and Bing, the quality is beginning to be very comparable.' While his comments might be a little biased, many people do share the same opinion. How do you feel about Bing's search results compared to Google's? For example DuckDuckGo, the privacy oriented search engine, uses Bing's back-end.

All tablets look drab when you compare with ipad 2/3. The ipad is quite inexpensive also. Until I see a really nice unit, I can't see win8 really succeeding. And ms shouldn't pull stunts that it can't deliver on..

Wow! Brilliant indeed.

And Apple only sold 3 million iPads that weekend. Imagine how many more it could have sold were it not for Microsoft raining on its parade. Way to go Redmond! You'll be king of the tablets soon. I can feel it!!
