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.

I'm not rooting for them to fail, I'm just making the observation that they are failing.

Only them can do anything about it. I can only laugh.

Also, it gives me something to do while I'm sitting here waiting for that terrible piece of shit visual studio to take 10 minutes to build a medium sized project on a goddamn 4 core cpu. In the consumer electronics space at least they can't get away with selling awful products, which is refreshing.
