Console OS ready to boot Android into PCs, sort of.

Console OS has a dream, one that Samsung and ASUS discovered to be a rather deadly one. It wants to enable fast and easy dual-booting of Windows and Android on a single PC, whether laptop or tablet, while offering the full potential of a regular Android installation. It flew to Kickstarter in search of support, which it found to some extent. Now it is announcing its first big step, making available the first Developer Release for the Android spin and taking it a rather small step closer to its ambitious goal.

Ideum Duet smart table now running both Android and Windows 8

No wonder it’s named the Duet. Smart table-maker Ideum has rolled out a new genius of a living room showpiece, and the really cool thing about it is that the new Duet multi-touch coffee table runs on both Android and Windows 8. Yes, you heard that right -- it's a coffee table, aaaand it's also a table-top computer that runs Microsoft's latest OS plus Android on a separate system. Pretty nifty.

Pushbullet Windows App updated, sending SMS now made easier

Pushbullet has pushed yet another update for its Windows app version. This was after Quick Action support, universal copy & paste, Material Design and improved notification, subscribing to Channels, and Play Store beta program were added to the program and a week after the Windows app was also updated with a better user interface. Still in beta mode, the Windows app now includes full SMS support.

Aside from our bad rhyming skills, the answer to that question must be fairly obvious, but in the interest of those who want actual numbers and statistics, a study conducted by SEO consulting firm Stone Temple showed a clear winner in the battle of the digital assistants. A test conducted on the built-in search assistants from Google, Apple and Microsoft showed that, of course, the search giant was miles away in terms of accuracy of results, although it might be lacking in the fun department.

Windows 95 on your Android Wear, if you have nothing better to do

YouTube user Corbin Davenport is gaining a bit of Internet notoriety, although we’re not exactly sure if this is the good or the bad kind. You see, he has tried to run some programs on Android Wear devices that, err… are not really normal nor useful to say the least. He has run Minecraft on his Samsung Gear Live, and has also ported classic PC shooter Doom on the same device. Now he has, for whatever reason unknown, managed to run a full Windows 95 operating system on his Android Wear device.

comScore: Android still king, Motorola and HTC falter

The latest comScore figures are out, and show little change in the order of smartphone OEMs with regard to market share in the US. Of interest is the gains and losses some have made, with one notable company having dropped off on a significant way. Don’t worry, though — Android is still on top.

ViewSonic ViewPad 10i tablet runs both Android and Windows

With tablets that provide both Android and Windows operating systems slowly starting to crop up, it was only a matter of time before cheaper alternative also appear.
