Windows 10 & Surface 3 Push Aside iPad, MacBook

While the small (<10%) number of Apple fanboys still tout their Macs as superior and somehow more sophisticated than the overwhelming majority (90%) of Windows based computers, Microsoft's new Windows 10 OS and the all-purpose Surface Tablet are beginning to give diehard Apple users a few second thoughts.

Here's how James Kendrick put it in his recent ZDnet post:

"I now use the Surface 3 every day, and while I haven't retired the iPad or the MacBook Air I find I don't miss them when using Microsoft's device. I've given a lot of thought as to why that is, and it comes down to the versatility of Windows 10."
The versatility of Windows 10 is gradually pushing my MacBook Air and iPad Air 2 to the side. This was unexpected and a testament to how good Windows 10 has become in such a short time.

Think of all the effort spent on redundant configuration and management. Think of all the time spent onboarding new employees. This is time you don't have to waste.

Your one-stop shop for cloud services is also your one-stop shop for Office Apps, powered by Microsoft Office365 http://ow.ly/H2dli
Recently it seemed that whenever I asked customers or partners what additional services they’d like to see from Intermedia, the answer was always the same:  “We’d like Intermedia to offer a fully integrated version of Microsoft Office.” Now, I can tell them that we do.  Intermedia Office Apps, powered by Microsoft Office 365™ is the newest addition to Intermedia’s Office in the Cloud™ suite of services.  Intermedia Office Apps offers the latest ...

The start of the year can be a stressful time for all. Businesses are busy preparing and planning for the year ahead.

This often means looking for new, yet affordable, business systems that can make tasks and business operations easier

Do you have a spot in the wardrobe for your tin-foil spacesuit? Maybe a hook in the garage for the jet pack?

No. Well that’s because these things were seen as standard items we would all need for the ‘future’, that mythical place in the 70’s and 80’s where humanity was in space or on Moon bases

Why should IT Support companies be seen by many either as ‘the man in the van that turns up only in an emergency’ or even the harbinger of doom about to rain down on their IT systems ? You know what – it kinda annoys me
IT support is a Professional Service as it allows you to make your business better, more effective or efficient - its an investment, not a cost

In 2015, one of the five most important developments is increased reliability of Cloud apps - 99.9% is no longer good enough, so as a partner of +Intermedia we are pleased they have 99.999% reliability - or 26 seconds of SLA downtime per month
As cloud computing becomes the norm for businesses of all sizes, the demands for security and reliability will increase.
