Marketing Day: June 25, 2012

Here’s our daily recap of what happened in online marketing today, as reported on Marketing Land and other places across the web.

  • Social And Mobile Bring Truly Personal Computing

    It’s become rather fashionable in the last year or so to talk about the post-PC era, most notably after Steve Jobs did so back in 2010.

  • Google (7-Inch) Nexus Tablet Finally Arrives

    It was something of a non-secret that Google would be launching a 7-inch tablet this week at its developer conference, Google I/O, in San Francisco.

  • Hands-Off: Microsoft Surface Tablet Review

    After seeing yet another “hands-on” review of the Microsoft Surface tablet, I thought it would be interesting to shed more light on what exactly the journalists who assembled in Hollywood this week for the Surface launch event actually got to do with the tablets.
