What stands out above all else is that it’s remarkable the product team didn’t nix the Surface’s convoluted multi-OS product plan.
Instead, we are presented with two options:
- Surface with Windows RT, introduced as an ‘ARM-based tablet’ (as if that means anything to a consumer), and;
- Surface with Windows 8 Pro that allows you to run ‘current Windows 7 desktop applications’.
The only thing that gives this choice any clarity for consumers is that the Surface with Windows 8 Pro is still unavailable. Otherwise, it’s just confusing.
Here’s a fantastic new interaction Microsoft’s just introduced with their updated Bing app for the iPad.
From our research, we know that many searches are inspired by things people see on the web. Today, it can be somewhat painful to search on a tablet when you’re engaged in reading something; just copying and pasting pieces of text from a webpage to a search box can take up to nine steps on the iPad. With Lasso you can circle and search in just two steps.
