Microsoft is running a promotion whereby they’ll give you $200 if you step into one of their stores and hand over your iPad. There are two problems with this. One, you can count the number of Microsoft Stores around America using just your fingers and toes. Probably just your fingers, actually. And two, you don’t get $200 in cold hard cash. Instead, you’ll get $200 in store credit.
When Apple launched the iPad in 2010, it allowed users to install iPhone apps (due to the limited iPad apps available at that time), which could be used in 2x mode, using the pixel doubling technique.

Apple unveiled iOS 7 at the WWDC Keynote on Monday, where it showcased some of the major new features such as the completely redesigned user interface, Control Center, Notification Center with the Google Now-like feature called “Today”, iTunes Radio and lots more.

Some people aren’t lucky enough to be born with fully functioning hearts and they need an implant that can kickstart their heart should it stop beating. Said implant is called a defibrillator.
