HP replaces their CEO and then changes their mind about dumping their PC unit. They will also continue investing in the tablet market. Hopefully this means they will follow through with their Windows 8 on TouchPad experiment and release a version for existing TouchPad owners when the time comes.
Nintendo’s loss may suck for Nintendo, but it shouldn’t be surprising at all if you look at their output lately. It’s been dismal.
10 million copies of Battlefield 3 in its first week is a lot — especially when that doesn’t include all those digital copies sold via Origin. I did my part and so did my brother.
If you’re wondering about my thoughts on the game, I think I’ll have a write up of my early impressions ready for Sunday’s post.
