    China turns up antitrust heat on Microsoft

    Computerworld
    In a cryptic statement, Chinese government regulators have demanded Microsoft explain "major issues" in data authorities collected from the company last year during an antitrust investigation. It was the first time in more than a year that China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce hinted that its probe is continuing. Gregg Keizer writes China's investigation into Microsoft began in August 2014 with raids on Microsoft offices in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Shanghai. At the time, SAIC – one of several agencies in the People's Republic of China that enforce antitrust law – said it was after information about how Windows and Microsoft Office were bundled, about Windows-Office compatibility, and about other unnamed concerns after fielding complaints since mid-2013.

    Reuters
    Bill Gates grows most animated when the talk turns to the "cool" new energy technologies that have yet to leave the lab. Gates was a rare civilian sharing the limelight alongside presidents and prime ministers at the opening session of Paris climate talks on Monday. Offstage, in a barren conference room, he excitedly described the possibility of generating energy through the long-speculated process of artificial photosynthesis, using the energy of sunshine to produce liquid hydrocarbons that could challenge the supremacy of fossil fuels. “If it works it would be magical,” says Gates, hugging his elbows to his side and rocking lightly in his seat. “Because with liquids you don’t have the intermittency problem [that] batteries [do]. You can put the liquid into a big tank and burn it whenever you want."

    MS Surface Book vs iPad Pro: don’t ditch your laptop yet

    Business Spectator
    Both Apple and Microsoft want us to ditch the laptop, and their latest premium offerings highlight what the future holds for stand-alone laptops in a PC jungle dominated by two-in-ones. The iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Book are glamorous stand-alone tablet devices, but with keyboards attached they have pretensions as productivity workhorses. You wouldn’t consume content walking around with either, but they give the tablet viewing experience a lift. You’re really at the movies. Both aim to be dream devices for designers with their styluses, although most of us don’t draw much. Apple’s Tim Cook has branded the iPad Pro as a desktop replacement for many, but both have a way to go to meet everyone’s needs as a productivity device.
