Info about the Iconia W3 Windows 8 tablet has already slipped out a few times, and now this 8.1-incher is live on Acer’s Finnish website. While there’s no mention of price or availability, the specifications list matches what’s already been leaked. You’re looking at Windows 8 Pro running atop an Intel Atom Z2760 CPU, aided by 2GB of RAM. Other features include a 1,280 x 768 touchscreen, an eight-hour battery, up to 64GB of storage, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. Port lovers will be pleased to find micro-HDMI and micro-USB hookups onboard, as well as a microSD slot. Microsoft Word comes pre-installed, but there’s no concrete info about the optional full-size keyboard dock — other than that it exists, anyway. It’ll likely be closer to June when we’ll be staring at it in the flesh, so you’ll have to settle for the info at the source link for now.
The retailer’s online sales fell 33 percent last year while competitors are seeing double-digit gains.
As bad as things are for J.C. Penney’s brick-and-mortar stores, they are even worse for its digital operation.
Internet sales plunged 33% last year to $ 1.02 billion, performing even worse than the company's physical stores, where sales fell 25%. By contrast, e-commerce sales for competitors are booming — Macy's and Kohl's both saw online sales soar more than 40% in the same time period.
The decline is even more surprising given that it came under the watch of former CEO Ron Johnson, the executive responsible for transforming Apple into a retail behemoth.
Mike Ullman, who was brought back to replace Johnson as CEO in April after retiring from that position in November 2011, emphasized on J.C. Penney's first quarter conference call Thursday that fixing the retailer's online storefront was a top priority. (First quarter online sales figures were not provided.)
During his first public remarks since becoming CEO, Ullman told analysts yesterday that problems with the website were “self-inflicted” — it was just hard for customers to use. During the last year, JCP.com operated as “a completely separate entity inside the company, with little synergy between stores and online” and the company is working to make “a seamless omnichannel experience” going forward, he said.
Or, put another way, J.C. Penney's digital operations lacked the ease-of-use and seamless integration that has become Apple's trademark.
Visitors to the J.C. Penney website are now met with a pop-up asking them to participate in a customer satisfaction survey that asks questions about what sections they plan to visit, their likelihood of making a purchase and possible bugs, among other things.
Ullman is cleaning up a number of mistakes caused by his predecessor, who was responsible for a $ 4.3 billion plunge in sales last year as he experimented with a shift to everyday-low prices, slashed mainstay private-label brands such as St. John's Bay and sought to turn most J.C. Penney stores into a collection of boutiques.
This month, J.C. Penney has been running ads asking customers to come back to stores and thanking them for returning.
Ullman wouldn't provide any concrete numbers but said the response to the marketing and Mother's Day promotions were encouraging. After a 16% decline in this latest quarter and a net loss of $ 348 million, investors and analysts will have to hope so.

Microsoft is launching its latest anti-Google campaign this week. A new Scroogled site has emerged that directly attacks Google’s “unfair pay-to-rank shopping practices” says Microsoft. “Simply put, all of their shopping results are now paid ads,” reads a statement on the site. The move follows a change by Google to move to a model where all merchants pay either per click or per transaction to be included in Google Shopping.
“We say that when you limit choices and rank them by payment, consumers get Scroogled,” says Microsoft. The Scroogled site offers up a blatant way to use Bing for holiday shopping results, the latest in a string of anti-Google attacks from Microsoft. The software maker launched “Bing it on” recently with a TV…

Twitter’s been working on a number of feature enhancements to its service this past year, and now the company is hoping to expand its reach by letting users share tweets via email directly from its website. In a blog post, Twitter describes that users will soon see a new “more” option next to individual tweets that will allow them to email the 140-character missives to people that aren’t on the service itself. The shared tweet will be emailed out directly from Twitter itself rather than use the email client on a user’s computer. While a similar feature is already available on the company’s mobile apps, there’s no doubt Twitter wants to leverage those who prefer its website to spread the word to friends and family that haven’t signed up…
Yesterday we saw what seemed the guide for Google’s Nexus 10 tablet, and today we’re getting a look at one for the Nexus 4– from LG itself.

Following The Letter Of The Law: Apple Publishes Non-Apology To Samsung On Its Website To Comply With U.K. Court Ruling
After losing an appeal in a UK high court last week against a judgement that Samsung ’ s Galaxy Tab tablets do not infringe the design of the iPad due to the fact that their design is simply not cool enough, Apple has now published an acknowledgement of the court ’ s judgement on its U.K. internet site — in line with the court order. You could ’ t call it an apology — fairly the reverse: Apple makes it clear it does not agree with the court ’ s decision by pointing out that it has had court wins against Samsung for the exact same design patent in Germany, and noting its huge win against the Korean device maker in the U.S this summer.
Apple also concentrates on the judge ’ s explanations for dismissing its patent claim — quotationing the judge ’ s detailed ruling on exactly what makes the iPad ’ s design so much cooler than the Galaxy Tab, in which he talks practically lovingly of the “ extreme simpleness ” of the iPad ’ s design; its “ undecorated areas ”; “ crisp edge ” and “ combination of curves ”.
Apple then contrasts that with what the judge had to say about the Galaxy Tab: “ extremely thin, virtually insubstantial ” with “ uncommon information on the back ” — and the conclusion: “ not cool ”.
Here ’ s Apple ’ s acknowledgment in full
Samsung / Apple UK judgment
On 9th July 2012 the High Court of Justice of England and Wales ruled that Samsung Electronic (UK) Limited’s Galaxy Tablet Computer, namely the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 8.9 and Tab 7.7 do notinfringe Apple’s registered design No. 0000181607-0001. A copy of the full judgment of the Highcourt is readily available on the following link www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Patents/2012/1882.html. In theruling, the judge made a number of crucial points contrasting the designs
of the Apple and Samsung products: “ The harsh simpleness of the Apple design is striking. Total it
has undecorated flat areas with a plate of glass on the front all the method out to an extremely thin rim and a blank back. There is a crisp edge around the rim and a combo of curves, both at the corners and the sides. The design appears like an item the informed individual would wish to pick up and hold. It is an understated, smooth and straightforward product. It is a cool design. ” “ The notified individual ’ s overall impression of each of the Samsung Galaxy Tablets is the following. From the front they belong to the household which includes the Apple design; however the Samsung items are really thin, almost insubstantial users of that family with uncommon information on the back. They do not have actually the same understated and extreme simpleness which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool. ” That Judgment has impact throughout the European Union and was upheld by the Court of Appeal on 18 October 2012. A copy of the Court of Appeal’s judgment is offered on the following link www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2012/1339.html. There is no injunction in respect of the registered design in force anywhere in Europe. Nevertheless, in a case tried in Germany concerning the same patent, the court discovered that Samsung engaged in unjust competition by copying the iPad design. A UNITED STATE jury additionally located Samsung guilty of borrowing on Apple ’ s design and utility patents
