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 is the biggest problem, and the only page they still haven't taken from Apple's book: one should not present a product without a price and a shipping date.

People are talking about the Surface, but how long? And how will they react, months from now, when they will discover the steep price of the tablet? Because make no mistake: between the Magnesium+PVD with micron tolerances, the gorilla glass and the fact they need to avoid competiting with their own OEM, expect a very, very high price, even if MS tries to sell it at a loss like a game console. Why do you think nodody pulled it before? Eh.
