    They're not just summoned from whole cloth, and not everyone can afford the Vienna Boys Choir, so where do ringtones come from? A great many artists and musicians, actually, and we talk to a particularly talented one on today's podcast. Ali Spagnola joins us in the feature segment to share tales of music making, drinking games, and just how one gets banned from Michigan – and on the way we learn exactly how a pair of ringtones called "Radiation" and "Robots for Everyone" found themselves on millions of smartphones the world over. Before that, Adam Z. Lein stops by to tell us all about ...

    Microsoft might have just scored a positive hit with its announcement of the Surface Pro 3. Obviously we still have to wait for the product to be available to the rest of the public, but that doesn't mean that it hasn't landed a ton of praise from all of us in the tech media. If you're interested in getting yourself Microsoft's new stab at what a pro-tablet should be, you might want to consider Best Buy as an option. Best Buy has now launched pre-orders for the Surface Pro 3, and well, you won't be getting any discounts, but if you're in the market for the dark blue type cover, at the ...

    Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 was announced this morning and we were pleasantly surprised to get to leave the press event with a brand new Surface Pro 3 with 256 Gb SSD and 8Gb of RAM along with a nice blue type cover with a lot of improvements. We decided to unbox it right away. First of all, the new type covers are sold separately and we didn't get a box for that. We just had it thrown in with the bag. The Surface Pro 3's box looks similar to the boxes for previous Surface Pro devices, but without the angled edge, and there's no longer a secondary flip cover once you slide out the ...

    Many of you may not remember this, but tablets have existed for almost twelve years. Microsoft invented the concept of the tablet computer, and it did so in a very bold and daring manner. Back then there weren’t any neigh sayers that didn’t believe in the product. On the contrary, people found them cool, and I could tell you stories of how many of us wished we could afford one. And yes, that last phrase is really what nailed the coffin for this product category over the course of almost a decade. It was sadly too pricey for the little power you received in return. Fast forward to 2014 ...

    May 20 is upon us, which means it's time for Microsoft's latest press event. Invites went out two weeks ago, quickly fueling speculation that the company would announce a Surface Mini. In the time that's followed, we've also heard claims of a possible Surface Pro 3, and more recent rumors have suggested that instead of something smaller, we're looking at something bigger – maybe Surface models up in the 12-inch range. We sent Pocketnow's Adam Z Lein to New York this morning to find out. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella got things started, taking the stage to talk about a “major step ...

    The rumored Microsoft Surface Mini -- late or not to the game -- is expected to be unveiled Tuesday at a New York City event. Apparently, according to the latest rumors, it might be accompanied by a Surface Pro 3 (instead of the Surface Pro 2 refresh we've been hearing about for quite some time). We've heard some vague specs of the "other" Surface tablets present at the event, but WPCentral claims to have knowledge of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 specs. According to the report, there will be five versions of the slate, with the following prices, and specs: i3/4GB RAM/64GB at $799, i5/4GB ...

    What exactly qualifies as a "remix?" How deluded do you have to be to believe in all these "Prime" rumors? Why are we so transfixed by the notion of lasers on smartphones, and so easily taken in by a smartphone commercial, if it's shot like a trailer for Inception? We tackle these questions, and the biggest announcement section in the history of the podcast, in episode 096 of the Pocketnow Weekly. No, that's not bragging – it's just an unavoidable symptom of a month packed with unboxings, hands-ons, product launches, and reviews (both forthcoming and already-published). But even in the ...

    Even thought he Microsoft Surface hasn't been as popular as most of us feel it deserves to be, at least in its Pro model, it doesn't change the fact that Microsoft is still betting hard on it. With Stephen Elop's new leadership, a lot of us wonder what exactly does Redmond plan to do with its beloved tablet line-up. We do know that there is a Microsoft event next week, and we also know that there are rumors of a Surface mini launch, but it seems that it won't end there. In an internal support document, Microsoft has just spilled the beans on the probability that there is a Surface 3 in the ...
