Surface Pro arrives in a few days and could restart the machine after a disappointing start. It will be available in two versions, 64GB and 128GB as Surface RT, But Surface Pro does not really have all that space.
Indeed, the 64 GB version of the Surface, the user can have only 23 GB to store its contents. The reason? Instead that requires Windows 8. The pre-installed applications are equally guilty, which leaves only the user that little room at the end. 41 GB is taken by the OS and applications, more than half of the space specified by Microsoft.
On the 128 GB version is the same story. On the total space touted by Microsoft, 83 GB will be used by the buyer. A problem that is certainly understandable, but will not fix the bad image that the Surface already has.
Users on Google+ have been able to +1 apps in the Google Play Store for a while now, and also the option has been there to share an app to your Circles on Google+, but now the functionality has taken another bump and will allow Android users to install apps directly from their Google+ Stream.
Similar functionality has been available in Google+ when sharing music; users could listen to or buy music shared from the Play Store. Now, when you share an app on Google+ there will be an “Install” or “Buy” button which will take users directly to the Play Store. This will work on a desktop or on an Android mobile device.
One odd quirk with the functionality is that the new buttons will only be displayed if you share the app link on Google+. If you +1 the app in the Play Store and share it that way, the install option won’t be there. It seems likely that will change in the future, but it’s an odd omission right now.
