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.

Sorry Microsoft, I don't buy your stuff.

Oh, right, you only use stuff from "principled" companies like Google (who spies on you, forces its G+ social networking POS on you, trying its damnedest to de-anonymize you, cooperates with government surveillance and censoring, etc, pays zero corporate taxes, etc) and Apple (who sues everyone who dares to compete with them, locks down its hardware to prevent competing software like Flash, turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in China in order to maximize profits, files ridiculous design patents when there is clearly prior art, etc)...
