Pepcom Highlights from CES 2014

We stopped by Pepcom this year and saw a few nifty things from Piston, drooled over the Lenovo 4K display and checked out a "fair" way to cheat at gaming. The Red Dot is not a cheat - it's just a fancy way to hipfire accurately - and it's awesome. Check it out!

The end of the Surface Tablet?

Microsoft's Surface tablet has probably surprised some people that it has lasted as long as it has (3 generations so far), but if Digitimes has the story right the 3rd version might be the last version as it is being rumored that Microsoft is looking to get out of the tablet hardware market. It is being reported that Microsoft has lost over a billion dollars over the life of the Surface product line which is probably enough reason to call it quits.

Microsoft continues to see weak sales for its Surface Pro 3 tablet and is reportedly planning to cancel the product line since shipment performance has been far lower than expectations, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Lacking a sufficient number of distribution partners, plus high prices, the first- and second-generation Surface tablets are estimated to have created losses of about US$1.7 billion, the sources noted.

Seeing large-size smartphones impacting tablet demand, the sources are concerned about upcoming demand for the Surface Pro 3.

PC sales up 4%, still not dead

For the past decade we keep hearing that the PC is dead, yet last year PC sales saw a 4.2% increase in the US last year (9% in Europe). Even in the midst of a tablet and smartphone crazed market, PC's have managed to hold strong in their sales and actually increase. The day when the "PC" dies might not be too far off, but for the time being it doesn't look like it is going anywhere. Gigaom has the full story.

Gartner’s latest figures show that PCs are no write-off — it seems they still hold a lot of attraction for many consumers and businesses, though not all vendors are benefiting.
