Apple is purchacing a Canadian mapping company



It is not the first time Apple is purchasing a smaller local company to improve  mapping. There were at least three big purchases,   Placebase, C3 and Poly9. All of them helped Apple modernize its growing mapping and location services effort. Apple's maps leave a lot to be desired, so the company's PR managers claim: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

It has been reported recently that  that Apple has signed a deal with Locationary, a Canadian service which helps manage databases of location, cope with duplicate information and delete outdated entries.

Microsoft is abasing iPad. Again [video]



Microsoft has launched an ad attacking Apple. Or should be say launched again? It is not the first time Microsoft is  comparing its devices with iPad. The ad always claims Microsoft products to be much cooler. They feature exactly the specifics iPad lacks. For example, a built-in back stand, USB port, and keyboard accessory. All of these accessories are options on the iPad, though it still can be considered a disadvantage. Are they really? The price for such an ad is quite high to pay. It was announced that Microsoft lost 900 million dollars in the last quarter due to Surface discount.

Another interesting feature is that in all ads of such type the Voiceover says,”This isn’t going to end well for me, is it? Nope definitely not ending well.”  However, financial research shows that it is the Surface which is likely to be in trouble rather than Apple’s iPad.
