Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

Well, it seems like Microsoft is pulling a "need for speed" down the road to guaranteed failure.

This could actually be a good thing, because maybe the wake up call from this monumental screwup will happen sooner rather than later - instead of contemplating Ballmer's and Sinofsky's return from Mars.
