I never even bothered to purchase an RT device because I couldn’t see any need for it in the way I work.

  • Microsoft, The Web Is No Longer Good Enough; Windows RT Needs Apps And Fast

    Windows on ARMI loathe using some websites. Twitter and Facebook are horrific on the web when compared to their iOS/Android apps.

The mobile first strategy is in full force and Microsoft needs to hop on board.
