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.

They can up their game to compete with this, if such is within them. They were a bit lazy when it came to competing with Apple hardware design, maybe now they'll get off their rear ends. hehe
This level of scorn against OEM is unwarranted (see my remarks above).

I know this website is more likely to attract coders than people in manufacturing, but please try to understand that hardware is far, far more difficult to make and ship than software.
