Windows "According to an inside source, a session was held at Microsoft's recent TechReady15 conference in which all the launch details were laid out. If things go according to the plan detailed then, the Surface for Windows RT tablet will be launching October 26th - no surprise there - at a compelling price of $199." My wallet just squealed in pure bliss.

People had all kinds of negative nonsense to say when the Kin was introduced at a loss. Microsoft laughed to the bank on that one ........ oh wait.

Microsoft has a hit and miss history with hardware. For every Kinect there is a Zune.

Do I think they can sell subsidized surface tablets? Sure. Do I think this makes their "one interface everywhere" plan any less stupid? No. Do I think their profits and stock will take a dive from a lack of upgrades compared to previous iterations of Windows? Yes.
