Tyler Schrenk was paralyzed from the neck down in a diving accident two years ago, and since then his daily activities became a lot more challenging. Thanks to Microsoft software engineer Jose Blakeley whom he met in a Church last year, he became aware of Windows speech recognition. To make use of it, he bought Microsoft Surface running Windows 8 to use for his daily activities. Using his voice, Schrenk operates a variety of Microsoft products and services – Internet Explorer, Bing, Outlook, Word and Excel. Now, he uses his tablet for a growing number of tasks: an Excel spreadsheet to track his caloric intake; Outlook to send email; and Internet Explorer to keep track of his fantasy football league, and follow his favorite teams: the Seattle Seahawks and University of Washington Huskies. Not just Surface, he also uses Xbox One with Kinect. Since the whole system is voice enabled, ...

Microsoft’s Xbox One is lagging behind Sony’s PS4 in sales. Lots of factors can be said to justify the same, but many analysts believe that Xbox One’s pricing was the significant one. Microsoft realized this and announced a new SKU for a cheaper price last month. Another factor could be around marketing of the console. Microsoft positioned Xbox One as the all-in-one entertainment console whereas Sony marketed it as the pure gaming console. A recent report from WSJ reveals that Sony is now out-spending Microsoft in TV ads for promoting their consoles. According to numbers from January 2014 through May via research firm iSpot, Sony had spent $59M to Microsoft’s $34.7M. Sony spent the most on networks like FOX, FOX Sports, Comedy Central, ESPN and TNT. Microsoft spent a lot on the two FOX channels and Comedy Central, AMC and TBS.
