androidWith everything from smartphones to iPads being sold in store and via sites like  it poses the question – are Android tablets driving the adaptation of laptops in emerging markets?

Well, let’s start with Windows 8. With its dramatic new style, bold Live Tiles, innovative Start screen (replacing the traditional Start button and menu of Windows 7) and a host of incorporated applications, it’s clear that Microsoft has made an epic attempt to bring Windows into the new world. A world of touchscreen mobile computing that’s taking the world by storm.

Not only was it designed for tablets, but for traditional PCs as well, which led to mixed reviews. While some people loved the clever new software and touchscreen capabilities, others criticised it for being over complicated and difficult to use, particularly with a keyboard and mouse. This led to the first revamped edition being released in October 2013, aptly named Windows 8.1.

Like all reputable technology companies, Microsoft listened to the feedback from its consumers and made various attempts to make its revolutionary new technology more user friendly. Not only did they reintroduce the Start button (with the traditional Start menu thought to be planned for Windows 8.2), but they also improved many of the applications.

The photo app, for instance, now came with many editing tools and users could choose from a wealth of other customization options. In short, Microsoft worked hard to make their innovative Windows release more appealing.

As well as Windows 8, many hybrid laptops also seem to have been inspired by Android tablets. Not only do they offer the practicalities of a regular laptop, they are also available with a full-functioning touchscreen offering the best of both worlds. They can be docked (ready to use with a keyboard and mouse) or used on the go providing users with a range of options!

The downside? Some are slightly heavier than traditional tablets making it more difficult to hold them for long periods of time and others don’t have the full capabilities of a traditional laptop. Other than that, they’re a great compromise for anyone that enjoys touchscreen technology but also prefers to type longer documents using a keypad.

What’s more, with the introduction of iCloud storage – a development which lets you access photos, documents, videos and more from whatever device you’re on – it’s now more tempting than ever to purchase devices with this functionality to allow for more flexibility. So, if you have an iPad, you might also want a hybrid laptop or an android inspired device to make working that little bit easier.

So while there’s still a place on the market for trustworthy desktops and standard laptops, it seems more devices are going down the lightweight, touchscreen route with clear Android influences.

In CNN’s Tech news, here is one tidbit that can tip the scales in the smartphone app market. As Google prepares to add a new category to its arsenal of portable devices with tablets, the company’s mobile team is deploying ways to better tie its different systems together. It might not come as a surprise that the internet giant is using the Web to do that.

Using the Android Market website in a browser, you can browse using Android-run tablets and smartphones to buy and download apps, Google announced at a news conference on the company’s main campus here on Wednesday.

From the website, users can beam the app to any number of phones or tablets connected to their accounts. The phone begins downloading the app almost instantly. This feature has already been enabled automatically on Android phones.

Previously, you’d have to open the Android app on a smartphone in order to search for and download programs. Synchronizing between other family members’ phones, for example, was a hassle.

The announcement reinforces Google’s philosophy of doing everything over the internet, or “cloud” in industry parlance. Android already synchronizes personal information such as e-mail and contact lists through the Web.

As an internet retailer that sells many different exclusive products in their online store, Market America markets these products to expand their business. Essentially, distributors earn commissions by getting their customers to shop through their websites.

The company has thousands of members throughout the world resulting in millions of revenues since it first started operating. This is in large part because of its sheer number of user base. They seem to be ok. I checked a few of their websites and I learned that an associate can make retail profit on the sale of products by way of driving traffic and sales through their website.

There seem to be a growing number of negative feedback regarding them. True or not, only those who have experienced how their systems work can really attest. And I would say that when a company is famous, there are bound to be negative rumors and issues so these people can take the company down.

The important thing is to check out the facts first.
