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.

With USB Ports, the potential for being able to directly connect a printer would seem possible, provided the driver support.

Reading this made me wonder (again!) why we still need, in this day and age, "a driver" to simply print something. MS could have made this seamless.

Ask the printer companies, they are the ones that push out crap tech.

Consumer grade printers are deliberately shit ... I thought this was well known?
