    Microsoft had the best month for consumer Surface sales, partially credits MacBook ‘disappointment’

    According to Microsoft, November marked the company’s best month for consumer Surface sales by volume (a list that excludes Surface Hub electronic whiteboard). The ever-growing line’s pre-holiday success was no doubt due in no small part to the recent arrival of the refreshed Surface Book and the brand new Surface Studio, the swiveling all-in-one that marks one of the more… Read More

    Microsoft offers Apple users $650 off to trade a MacBook for a Surface

    The new Surface Book got lost in the shuffle this week. Understandably so. It did, after all, get third billing at Microsoft’s own event in New York this week, owing to the flashiness of the Surface Studio and Windows 10 Creators Update and all of the 3D content creation that brought with it. And then, of course, Apple happened. But Microsoft’s not one to give up the spotlight for… Read More

    Microsoft shows off a new $100 input method with the Surface Dial

    Okay, this is cool. Microsoft kind of powered past the Surface Dial in all of the pomp and circumstance around the new Creators Update version of Windows 10 and the Surface Studio all in one, but the new wireless peripheral offers up some interesting new methods for interacting with the company products. The name and form factor tell you a lot about what you need to know here — the dial… Read More

    Microsoft’s Surface business skyrockets as the iPad’s slows

    Microsoft saw revenue from its Surface line jump 38% over last year’s total, according to its most recent financial report. Released today, the report states that Surface revenue hit $926 million during the last quarter, up from $672 million last year. Even at this level, Apple’s iPad business is still much larger, though growing more slowly. Apple’s iPad business is… Read More

    Microsoft will introduce a new Surface device on October 26

    On the 26th day of the 10th month of the year, Microsoft will be showcasing some big Windows 10 news at an event in New York City. The company just sent out invites, and while they don’t reveal a heck of a lot about what’s going down (just a lot of backwards text), we hear that the company will be launching a new Surface device at the event — exactly what remains to be… Read More

  • Microsoft teases what looks like a black Surface Book 2

    Microsoft teases what looks like a black Surface Book 2

    Generally, you don’t see the first spy shots of a new device coming from the company itself, but Microsoft isn’t really following all that many of the rules with its Surface lineup of house-built Windows hardware. That’s why it makes a certain kind of sense that the first look at what could be a Surface Book 2 comes from none other than Microsoft’s own official… Read More

    Microsoft’s new Surface keyboard has aesthetic and sensory qualities unlike anything you’ve ever experienced

    Microsoft’s new Surface keyboard has aesthetic and sensory qualities unlike anything you’ve ever experienced

    I like the Microsoft Surface, but you know what has been missing all this time? Keyboard covers that have “a blend of technology and style”, combining “Italian luxury, a Finnish minimalistic design aesthetic and durability that helps it improve with age, like a good leather jacket.” The keyboard covers are “meticulously crafted with a luxury material, sourced… Read More

    Windows Phone Is An Ex-Platform

    Microsoft announced its Q2 2016 results yesterday, reporting strong performance for its cloud business and leading to a stock bump in the wake of the news. Its Surface tablet hardware business also performed well. However it’s an entirely different story for the unloved phone-making business — that albatross around Satya Nadella’s neck… Read More

    Surface And Lumia Clock Record Numbers For Microsoft During Holiday Season

    In its most recent quarter, Microsoft sold 10.5 million Lumia handsets, and the Surface line generated $1.1 billion in revenue. Both figures are all-time highs. Microsoft did break out total phone revenue — $2.3 billion, down from $2.6 billion in the sequentially preceding quarter — but that figure includes the sale of tens of millions of dumbphones, so it’s slightly… Read More
