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.

is about how Microsoft keeping secrets now. No one knew this was incoming until a few days ago. I'm still impressed on how they're keeping it hush hush about WP8.

I want the ARM version. Intel CPUs don't belong on mobile devices.

The keyboard/track pad inside the cover is awesome. People at Apple are probably saying "why didn't we think of that."

You might want to check Intel based Orange SanDiego.
