A long-running court case over consumers' right to get a refund on unwanted OS has finally been settled. Will it change the PC market in the country?
Newly released figures from two popular web analytics firms show a PC market that is essentially static. The most interesting detail: Apple's push to update its installed base to the latest OS X version has largely succeeded, while Microsoft is less successful with its efforts to get Windows 8 users to move to the free 8.1 update.
If a lot of what Apple announced at this week's WWDC seems familiar, that shouldn't be a surprise. Increasingly, the owners of big computing platforms are building features designed for a multi-device world. And in that world, PCs and Macs are no longer at the top of the food chain.
The boutique PC company hedges its bets with a hybrid Steam Machine that starts at $1,899.
Microsoft has brought together 25 cloud providers to host its services to customers around the world.

Some people are still in denial about the rise of the Linux operating system with the Chrome Web browser interface, Chrome OS, and its hardware: the Chromebooks. The experts say, however, it's the one segment of the PC market that's growing while everything else shrinks.
In five and a half years, Android has come from nowhere to crush Apple and Microsoft in the mobile device market. How long until PC OEMs decide to take a gamble on the winning mobile OS and load Android onto PCs?
The 13.04 release of Ubuntu will be made available tomorrow, with Canonical claiming the release brings improvements designed to support its future as a phone, tablet and PC OS.
Microsoft can ride Windows 7 upgrades in the enterprise for a bit, but the dismal PC sales picture is worrisome for the company's flagship OS---especially if it can't get tablet and smartphone traction.
Steam for Linux gets a big boost from a little desktop that starts at $599.
The issue is that developers will have to code their apps to work with four major versions of OS X to be compatible with the largest number of Mac users.
The mini-desktop PC, which runs the Google Chrome OS, shows up online in a new configuration that doesn't include an under-powered processor for once.
According to Amazon, the number one selling laptop isn't a Windows PC or a Mac, it's the Samsung Chromebook, which runs Google's Linux-based Chrome OS.
Faster mobile networks - 4G and even 5G - unlock the prospect of shifting the OS off the handset and turning it into a thin client. Could they pave the way for the end of mobile hardware as we know it?
After striking out with the corporate market, Google is now appealing to the general public to buy Chromebooks running its Chrome OS and using cloud-based services instead of a tablet PC.
In addition to jumping on the Windows Phone 8 bandwagon, the mobile carrier is trying its hand at hawking Windows 8 slates.
Consumers in markets such as Indonesia and the Philippines will continue to buy netbooks as their first PC, but more capable and cost-effective alternatives and the upcoming Windows 8 OS signal netbooks' death knell.
You could buy a Windows 8 PC, good luck with that, a pricey Mac, or you could get the Google Chrome OS powered Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook.
