re: Some Intel-Based Tablets Flunk Windows 8 Upgrade
I have a Sammy Slate 7 and ran the test to see if it is upgradeable. It is, as the article states, but will not be capable of delivering the normal Win 8 experience, or words to that effect, because the screen isn't as sensitive to touch as Win 8 devices are supposed to be. Fine, I'll keep Win 7. I think it is a good OS.

I don't know - the Surface has all the prereqs to be a fantastic tablet - if it takes off, Intel will do just fine. It's only existing tablets that have the issue and the sales of those have been pretty lackluster.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
