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.

Yes I have, and I wasn't the least bit impressed. And it's not like I have anything against Nokia; one of my all time favorite phones was the N900 and it was a bit rough around the edges from a design standpoint.

I just wish Nokia and Samsung would stop putting out cheap plastic crap and go back to the great build quality they both used to have. There was a time when you could pick up a feature phone or dumbphone from either company and it just felt solid, even with the plastic casing. Their recent phones, however, feel like those toy cellphones you see in the grocery store candy aisles.

I'm not saying they need to be building two pound metal bricks, I just wish they would consider the fact that some people don't upgrade every few months and prefer a more rugged, substantial device.
