Submission + - Windows 8: the Ultimate Tablet/PC Hybrid? (hurvitz.org)

orenh writes: "Microsoft has revealed that Windows 8 will add the mobile-friendly Tiles UI to the full operating system. Many people have criticized this decision as a foolish attempt to enter the tablet space with a desktop operating system. But I think it's a smart idea, since this makes Windows 8 the only operating system that can power no-compromise hybrid tablet/desktop machines. After being eclipsed by Apple and Google in the mobile space, will Microsoft have the last laugh?"

Submission + - Google Docs OCR Quality Tested (hurvitz.org)

orenh writes: "Google has released a Google Docs application for Android, which includes the ability to create documents by OCR-ing photos. I tested the application's OCR quality and found that it's mediocre under the best conditions and poor under real-world conditions. However, I believe that this poor performance is caused in part by an intentional decision by Google."
