Despite all our attempts – I’d even say our programming – to fit in, we have often convinced ourselves that we are outliers, cut off from the world, different from others, in the most miniscule of things. When we look back at ourselves – and it is almost part of our being human that we try and analyse all that we see, we need to create categorisations for people and, as a result, we apply the same rules to ourselves, too – we label ourself the oddity far too often.

Civlization V was a beast, a fun game that actually asked you to use your brain (a feat, indeed, in today’s world of mindless shooters, not that I don’t enjoy those 😛 ) and Civilization: Beyond Earth, dubbed Civilization in Space by some, promises to be just as good – no, better! – and I just can’t wait for September to come around. Continue reading Civilization: Beyond Earth…I Can’t Stop Salivating
While you often hear of the revolutions technology is creating in business, sports and, well, just about everything else, you don’t often hear of the tech revolution going on in another, perhaps far more important, front: the stage of Global Jihad.

With lower prices, increasing internet speeds and tremendous advantages over physical media, the cloud is becoming more and more attractive as the only storage solution you need, perhaps even making redundant the need for internal hard drives in the near future, as Google is betting on with Chromebooks but there are still major hiccups that need to be addressed before one could really start considering the cloud as a primary storage solution, rather than just a means of sharing files and backing up important documents.

It is, to say the least, quite annoying to see tech journalists and pundits struggling on deciding what to call the Surface Pro line of…devices? – is it a tablet or a laptop? And, having been unable to resolve the dispute, sidelining the product as being good on neither account. And, they aren’t the only ones at fault. Microsoft, as well, hasn’t really provided one, coherent answer to the problem. If only someone had read something about idealism – or even Marxism…
With the recent launch of Surface Pro 3, Microsoft has certainly upped the game – both against Apple and its own OEM partners – and produced the best Surface product to date but, if any of you remember the early punditry following the release of the original Surface products, we still aren’t entirely sure regarding its intentions for in-house manufacture. Did it spend billions and rename itself to a “Devices and Services” company only to guide its OEMs to freedom and glory? I suppose not; they are clearly in the race and, from the look of things, quite serious about it.
I’m sure many of you have come across Windows 8 and the armada of different form factors it allows for. While it was quite recently released, we already have tons of Windows 8 machines to choose from today and I’ll be sharing what, I believe, is the best Windows 8 tablet available on the market today, the Asus Transformer Book T100.
