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.

"...but also because Microsoft just made all its OEMs into potential enemies. This is a big slap in the face of Microsoft's OEMs, basically telling them they're not good enough."


all this happened before.

when Microsoft with OEM partners was unable to compete with Apples iPod, Microsoft make their own media player, Zune.
