Do you think the Ultrabook project has helped the laptop industry get into a better position for making cheaper, fitter products? Or was it just a marketing push to sell high-margin products to suckers? Should the Ultrabook project continue? What are your thoughts on what happened in the last 3 year, and what should happen to the laptop industry?

Some keywords to think about:
SSD
Advertising
Touch
Battery Life
TDP
Instant-On
Price
Tablets
2-in-1
Macbook Air

Dunno.  Show me an  i7 11" ultrabook that's not gimicky (Other than the Air) ...that (size/power) should be the flagship of the ultrabook class but it's not.  They'd sell like hotcakes.

Information about a Bitlocker bug fix (and where to find your Bitlocker key.)
If you have a Surface 2 tablet and have experienced the BitLocker recovery key bug—and trust me, if you have, you'll know it—you'll be happy to hear that Microsoft has issued a fix. The Surface 2 BitLocker recovery key bug shows up when you reboot or turn on the device.

Perceptual Computing, Next Generation. The PC event from Intel was very impressive. Looks like Dell, ASUS and Lenovo will release prodicts with Intel Realsense, the new brand for their 3D camera technology.

The Ultrabook market didn't reach its target of 40%, at least when counting the 'Ultrabook' branded products but did it have a wider impact that we can't really measure?
