In 2012 there were more Android devices sold than Windows devices. By the end of 2013, it is probable that there will be more iOS devices sold than Windows devices too. If so, by the end of this year, Windows will be only third in terms of OS sales.
It’s death by a thousand cuts.
You just can’t make this up.
Microsoft on Saturday confirmed that Internet Explorer (IE) 6, 7 and 8 contain an unpatched bug — or “zero-day” vulnerability — that is being used by attackers to hijack victims’ Windows computers.
Don’t use IE unless your job depends on it, it’s not worth it.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

The irony, most in the classroom will be using MacBooks and iPads.
HTC won’t be making a large-screened Windows Phone anytime soon. The reason for this? The platform’s limitations. This, in fact, has always been the reason why certain shiny new hardware advancements haven’t made it to the WP camp, or if they have (see HD displays and dual-core processors), they’ve been pretty late compared to the Android competition.
If Microsoft wants to compete with Android as a viable alternative to manufacturers using Android, it better get working on this. There is a market for behemoth smartphones, and even if it is a small market, they need anything they can get.
