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.

Yes, that scream you heard was Elop as the blade slide between his shoulders. Wish some of us had seen that coming (ahem).

How do you know Elop didn't know? I mean really, this will hardly affect him personally or professionally.

Have you checked how much Nokia stock he owns personally? Are you sure that overseeing the demise rather than the resurgence of Nokia won't affect him professionally?
