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.

With the cheap plastic-y phones they've put out recently, I'd say they need to step up their game. I used to think Samsung made the cheapest, flimsiest smartphones out there but Nokia's recent phones seem like they'd break if you set them down too hard.

Is it so difficult to make a phone out of metallic parts these days?


Huh? Have you ever played with a Lumia? Pretty damned nice phone.
