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.

The surface tablet summarized in a picture:

a bad tablet (windows8) that can turn into a terrible joke of a "laptop" that you can't actually use on your lap


Errrrr ... you're not capable of folding the cover behind the device, and using the software keyboard? It's competing directly with an iPad. The fact that the cover doubles as a keyboard is a bonus, not a detraction.

Said anonymous Internet guy. Yawn.

It's amusing to see dorks like you rooting for Microsoft to fail here. Don't you tools understand that competition is a good thing?
