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.

Teenagers right now are growing up with Android and iOS.
The desktop and mobile are converging.
MS is not doing well in mobile.
Vista was a total failure but Windows 7 and Kinect were a success.
I applauded them for being bold with Windows 8 and the Surface when first previewed.
However, it feels like they're not a good enough package.
These next few years are very critical for them.
Where will this lead them?
