Windows 9 press conference confirmed

Microsoft has finally confirmed a press conference to give us an official look at the new Windows 9 platform. The rumour mill has been going full tilt for over a week on whether we would see 9 at the end of the month, with leaked teasers of what might be. Mark your calendars for September 30th.

Improved sensors for the Surface keyboard

Microsoft has a new keyboard for their Surface tablets.  The Touch Ccover 2 has a fast response time and is a sleek 2.75mm thick.  Bonus, it's backwards compatible, so if you purchased an earlier Surface, it will work just fine. The really innovative part behind the new TC2 is the number of sensors in the keyboard. The old one had 80 sensors, the TC2 upped it to 1092. That translates into a keyboard with far greater touch sensitivity, which in turn means greater speed and accuracy.
