Yesterday, Microsoft unveiled his new product: Microsoft Surface. What is it? In his website Microsoft defines Surface as "Microsoft’s first surface computer that provides effortless interaction with digital content through natural hand gestures, touch and physical objects. Surface computing breaks down traditional barriers between people and technology, changing the way people interact with all kinds of everyday information — from photos to maps to menus."

Personally, I think the result achieved by Microsoft is quite impressive: a part from the multi-touch interface (already seen on the Apple iPhone), I really liked the interactivity that this product brings to you. You can plant a Bluetooth or WiFi-capable device on the table and it will be recognized instantly by Surface: then you can drag data from a device to another, see information about the device itself, etc. (see the video below).

The first companies to utilize the Surface will be Harrah’s Entertainment Inc., Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., and T-Mobile USA Inc.

Here is the video where you can see the key features of Microsoft Surface:

Do you plan to have a web site, either for commerce or just for personal use? With Web 2.0 revolution, it is more and more important to find good web designers able to build websites that are user friendly and easy to maintain.
Searching in the web, I've found a directory for web site design and web designers that could be useful for that purpose. The overall layout of a site has a huge impact on usability and on who will come back to your site in the future, so web page design ranging from site-wide to individual page content is an aspect worthy of major focus. Many resources are available online when it comes to making up a site but if you do decide that you would rather hire someone else for your web site design, then read some reviews before you sink money into a firm with a bad reputation.

If you know some other firms worth to be mentioned, write them in your comment.

Good news for Linux! Dell Inc. officially launched its first three consumer PCs running Linux: two desktops and one laptop. Dell announced what flavor of Linux it would use in the PCs, Ubuntu 7.04, earlier this month. It's the same OS Michael Dell, the chairman and CEO of the company, uses on his Dell Precision M90 laptop at home.
As reported on Dell website, they decided to give the chance to have a computer with Linux already installed, in response to customer feedback collected at www.ideastorm.com, a Web site set up to solicit customer suggestions. Over 100,000 people participated in surveys about the systems and what kind of Linux to install in the machines, Dell said in a statement.
The prices of the PCs with Ubuntu already installed are competitive but not so cheap as somebody could have expected: the laptop starts at $599, while the two desktops, the Dimension E520 and XPS 410n, start from $599 and $849 each, respectively. A comparable XPS 410 with Windows Vista Premium costs $899.
In any case, this is for sure a victory for the Linux supporters: now it's the customer that chooses which OS to install!

Microsoft announced the biggest acquisition in its history: they signed a deal to buy the digital marketing firm aQuantive for $6 billion all-cash.
Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer of Microsoft, said: “Today’s announcement represents the next step in the evolution of our ad network from our initial investment in MSN, to the broader Microsoft network including Xbox Live, Windows Live and Office Live, and now to the full capacity of the Internet. Microsoft is intensely committed to creating a thriving advertising business and to partnering closely with all key constituencies in this industry to help maximize the digital advertising opportunity for all.”
Earlier, Google snapped up DoubleClick for $3.1 billion and Yahoo acquired the RightMedia advertising exchange outright for $680 million.
Who will be the winner of this war in the online advertisement world? Wait and see ; - )

Incredible but true: the domain porn.com has been sold by Moniker to MXN Ltd for more than US $9.5 million!! This is the largest all-cash sale of domain name in history. In 2005, the domain Sex.com has been sold for US $12 million but the payment was partly cash and partly stock options. Other interesting sales made by Moniker in the past include domains such as cameras.com (sold for US $1.5 million), scores.com (sold for US $1.2 million), autos.com (sold for more than US $2 million).

16th May 2007: on Engadget at 11.49 am appears a post where there is written that Apple will delay the launch of IPhone until October and of Leopard until January. This news caused from 11.56 am to 12.02 am a loss of US $4 billion (the equivalent of 2.2% of Apple's value). Such event should make us thinking about the importance of the news reported also via Internet; in addition it proves that the news are spreading very fast thanks to Internet but also that websites should verify their sources before publishing the news (like made by the newspapers) especially because once published a news, this is immediately available worldwide. In this particular case, it seems that a trustworthy source supplied Engadget with an actual internal Apple email that went out to thousands of Apple employees where there was written the news of IPhone and Leopard delay. Few minutes after the news was published by Engadget, Apple sent an email to explain that the news was not correct and that they are in track with the IPhone and Leopard plans.

Whether you've downloaded a PDF file or you use them as your main format for keeping records, having some type of PDF conversion software around can be useful. Most of the time trying to format a PDF file is a pain compared to editing a Word file, but with a PDF converter like Able2Extract you can take a PDF, make it into a Word file, make the edits you find necessary, and easily turn the .doc back into a .pdf while maintaining the changes you made. If you haven't tried a piece of PDF to Word software you might find it useful, plus there are free trials available for both Able2Extract and Able2Doc depending on your PDF converting needs.
