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.

The moment it hits the market XDA will take breaking it as a pride point. XBOX have been broken, PS3 have been broken, no reason this one wont be.
Of course, it make take large part of its useful lifespan.


Besides street cred, not sure how interesting it is to void a warranty to crack UEFI.
