The US retail chain Best Buy is running a trade-in promotion for those who own a Microsoft Surface tablet. It's worth noting this promotion as you're guaranteed a gift card worth at least $200 when a full functional unit is traded in at a participating store. The most you'll be awarded is $350, so while it's not as lucrative as eBay you'll still be offloading your older model in time for Surface v2.

Tablets can be utilised to do multiple tasks, whether you require access to your Kindle collection for mobile reading or perhaps you're a DJ and composer. Joro Boro uses his Microsoft Surface for work and play, explaining how portable and powerful the products are in this latest advertisement.

The Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2 were announced alongside, the Surface Music Cover, a new “blade” which allows users to easily remix music on a special touch sensitive cover. The venture has shown us that Surface has many capabilities beyond a typical keyboard and the Surface team headed to the Art Center College of Design to find out exactly how far Surface can go.

When Microsoft and its partners don’t share actual numbers with us we have to go elsewhere to get our data fix. AdDuplex is one of those places where we can get an overall look at the current Windows Phone landscape in terms of which devices are popular (hint: it’s the Lumia 520). What is AdDuplex? It’s a cross-promotion network where developers can advertise their apps within each other’s apps. It also happens to have a Windows 8 network and what’s what we’re going to look at today. Which device is king of the hill when it comes to Windows 8?

If you have a Surface RT or Surface Pro and were thinking of picking up one of the colorful Touch Covers, you may want to hold off for eight more days. It has been revealed to Windows Phone Central that Microsoft is planning to drop the price on the accessory from the regular $119 to a more reasonable $79.99.

The new price will be permanent.

The Touch Cover was one of two keyboard accessories that launched with the Surface RT late last year, the other being the more robust Type Cover with mechanical keys. There is no evidence to suggest the Type Cover will receive a similar discount but we’re waiting on more information to see if that changes.

Apple has previously enjoyed kicking Microsoft down with the famous Mac versus PC advertisement campaign. It was a giggle to see Apple attempting to be trendy against Microsoft's "boring" OS and PCs in general. Now it's Microsoft's turn to hit back and the company is continuing its Apple-bashing run with the above advert, putting the Surface RT against the popular iPad.
