Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

That's interesting, my best friend has one and he loves it. He's never mentioned any issues with it, and we discuss our tech gear the way muscle car enthusiasts discuss new carburetors and engine timing.

I've played with it some and I must say it's very nice hardware, though a bit heavy for my taste even without the keyboard. I was used to the Nook Color though, which to me is a nearly perfect Android tablet. I'd say the Transformer is a notch or two above the average netbook, if you have no need for x86 support that is.
