Tony Smith gives an update on Acer’s upcoming release date for its Android-based tablet device.

Jim Dalrymple writes about the popularity of the Apple MacBook.

“The times are changing and the news isn’t good for software giant, Microsoft. For Apple, however, the news is great – 47 per cent of students plan to buy a MacBook. It seems that Microsoft is not appealing to younger users, who are setting the trends and will become the people making many future purchases. The news, reported on the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, cites a report from research firm Student Monitor that shows more students than ever will go to college this year with a Mac laptop.”
