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.

what gets fracking old is people thinking Microsoft is nothing more than a house for crappy products.

Windows 7 phones are pure beauty.

This coming from a Linux user and blogger. The only thing Microsoft really had to do was get hardware in line to make this tablet a reality.

And you're doubting one of the largest tech companies in the world can do that. I think you should think about that for a bit.
