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 verge: failure

First, the title "Microsoft Surface Touch Cover has a full multitouch keyboard and touchpad". Since when is a keypad-less keyboard a "full" keyboard? And even if full were referring to "multitouch", how can a keyboard be multitouch?

Second, the Verge's cdn can't even serve the page content.

ON-TOPIC: the best things with this tablet are 1- support for the existing software and 2- the cover that has a keyboard AND a touchpad. Killer idea. This is a tablet that I can think of wanting.
