Windows "Asus has a trio of Windows 8 tablets on deck for the holidays, but the pricing is so high - $599 to $1299 for a hybrid - that it's going to be nearly impossible to compete in the marketplace. We were leaked Asus' holiday roadmap and the slide below tells the tale." If this is for real, Windows 8 is screwed in the tablet space. Nobody is going to buy a Windows tablet at prices higher than the iPad.

To be fair it wasn't her choice, as the gym makes the employees use them.

Same thing with a Japanese restaurant chain in Germany that uses iPads for the menus. Think about that, an iPad per table just to allow the people to use an app, instead of a paper menu.

Last year in Helsinki I saw a similar iPad usage in a cocktail bar.

I really think it is ridiculous to spend 500 euros to replace a paper menu, per table, but what do I know about first world problems?!
