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.

and the Zune is/was a GREAT alternative.

The problem isn't the hardware OR the software. It's the attitude of people.

Apple sells a 'lifestyle' along with their products. it's a perceived image that you have to have their products to be cool.

Any other product isn't cool enough and makes you uncool. This is the real problem Microsoft has to beat.
