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.

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

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

Completely leaving OEMs out to dry (which google has done) is a stab in the back. Well actually, it isn't, its more bald faced than that. Its blatant disregard.

Microsoft would NEVER have let the bullshit that OEMs under Android are being put through stand.

You're arguing with Google sycophant. Don't expect rational thinking.

So you admit that it's not "stabbing in the back"? Or not?

Listen, you brought up Android in the first place, so maybe you have an issue right there.

Besides you forget, most companies MS is suing are in fact its long time OEMs as well.
