Surface Pro to launch at Best Buy in NYC on February 8

Microsoft is planning a midnight launch for the latest member of its Surface family, just ahead of the product’s February 9 commercial availability date.

Following the pattern it set with its Surface RT launch in October 2012, Microsoft is planning to launch its Surface Pro devices just before midnight the day before they’ll be commercially available.

On Friday, February 8, Microsoft is holding a private evening reception for select guests before the event, and then holding the formal launch just before midnight, February 9, at the Best Buy in Union Square in New York City. The invited guests will be among the first people eligible to buy the new Surface Pros — or, as Microsoft calls them officially, the « Surface Windows 8 Pros. »

Microsoft’s general manager of the Surface team, Panos Panay, will be on hand, as will members of the Windows team, according to a copy of the invitation that I saw. (I am not invited to the reception, myself, as it is not for press, I was told.)

Microsoft held its Surface RT launch at the now-shuttered Times Square Microsoft pop-up store.

Microsoft officials said earlier this month that the Surface Pro would be commercially available starting February 9. I’ve asked the company if and when pre-orders will begin for Surface Pros and have received no response to my query.

The Surface Pro is an Intel-based hybrid PC/tablet that Microsoft is positioning more as an ultrabook than a tablet. It will have half the battery life of the Surface RT, owing to its use of an Intel Core i5 chip. But it will be more powerful and have a better display than its Surface RT sibling. Prices for the Surface Pro start at $899.

The Surface Pros will be sold in the U.S. and Canada through all Microsoft retail stores, microsoftstore.com, and at Staples and Best Buy in the U.S., as well as from « a number of locations in Canada, » according to the company.

Facebook rend jaloux et malheureux

Facebook vous permet de rester en contact et d’échanger avec les personnes qui vous entourent », déclare le célèbre réseau social sur sa page d’accueil. Mais rester en contact peut aussi susciter envie et jalousie révèle une étude menée conjointement par le Dr Hanna Krasnova et le Dr. Peter Buxmann, deux chercheurs des universités allemandes de Humboldt et de Darmstadt.
Le plus grand réseau social au monde, qui compte plus d’un milliard de membres, est également une plate-forme de comparaisons sociales sans équivalent. Une personne sur trois (36,9 %) se sent plus mal après s’être connectée et plus insatisfaite de sa vie, disent les chercheurs, précisant que ceux qui ne publient rien sont les plus affectés.
« Nous avons été étonnés du nombre de personnes qui ont une mauvaise expérience de Facebook, qui ressentent un sentiment de solitude, de frustration et de colère », a déclaré à Reuters Hanna Krasnova, chercheur à l’université de Humboldt à Berlin.

Première source de ressentiment : les photos de vacances.
Selon les deux scientifiques, les photos de vacances sont la première cause de ressentiment (19,3 %). Elles sont responsables de plus de la moitié des réactions de jalousie. L’interaction sociale est le deuxième facteur de ressentiment (6,3 %), les utilisateurs pouvant comparer, par exemple, le nombre de vœux d’anniversaire reçus, de mentions « j’aime » et de commentaires. Pour ces personnes, l’absence de commentaire est associée à un manque d’attention des « amis ».
L’envie et la jalousie peuvent même mener à la dépression voire à un désir de nuire à la personne « responsable » de cet état.
Une troisième étude, allemande toujours et publiée en août 2012, indiquait que 95 à 98 % des 20-30 ans étaient présents sur le réseau social. Ceux de cette tranche d’âge qui ne seraient pas inscrits auraient peur de renvoyer une image négative d’eux-mêmes, n’ayant pas beaucoup d’amis.
