Microsoft testing Outlook for Windows RT. Still?

Microsoft Surface accounts for whopping 0.13% of tablet web traffic

BGR brings the news that a company called Chitika released a report indicating that Microsoft’s Surface was responsible for crushing 0.13% of tablet web traffic in Canada and the US between November 12th and 18th.

iPad ad X Surface ad

I just hate this dubstep trend in tech advertising. And it looks completely ridiculous when compared with something refined and well-made. It’s the basic difference between who is comfortable and secure about their speech, compared with who just screams as loud as they can to try to sound convincing.
