Default Windows 8.1

The Associated Press Posted: Jun 26, 2013

a couple of excerpts I'm concerned about...
Quote:
Microsoft has released an update to Windows 8, aiming to address some of the gripes people have with the latest version of the company's flagship operating system.
Quote:
Windows 8 was also supposed to make Microsoft more competitive in the growing market for tablet computers. But Windows tablets had less than a 4 percent market share in the first quarter, compared with 57 percent for Android and 40 percent for Apple's iPad.
Quote:
Microsoft is addressing that shift by banking its future on touch controls.
keyboard and mouse now on endangered list

this is the start(?) to how I get a computer like Tony Stark's!??
Of course, MOST of the hardware I have for computing is not compatible with touch, gesture and verbal commands.

Flashes of LP's ,reel to reel, 8-tracks and cassettes...

;pout;

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'
IMHO we finally have a POTUS that will get us back on the right track. We survived the community organizer but I am not optimistic that he will just go away and enjoy his ill-gotten wealth.
God bless our Troops.

With Google and their "foresight" pushing the direction of many of the newer technologies, I can only see Microsoft continuing to lag behind and playing "catch up".

If Google Glass can live up to it's hype...keyboard, mouse and monitor/tablet could all be obsolete soon...
