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.

It just stabs them in the back from time to time.

You mean like how Google offers absolutely zero patent protection to its OEMs?

You know, to ward off the INJUNCTIONS that HTC and Samsung routinely have placed on them?

Oh, right.

You might want to read up on the definition of stabbing in the back.
