Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

Anything made by monopolysoft I do not buy, if it's windows I get it for *free*. Microsoft's usefulness has been long overdue, hopefully the surface bombs in terms of sales and MS loses millions once it fails.

The Xbox 360 is not free and there are millons of people willing to pay for it. Same for Win7 PCs.

I guess Ballmer can always stop counting the money from aforementioned Xbox 360 and Win7 sales for a moment, and think that a couple of losers boycott his products. Same for Apple.

The only way to break a monopoly is to make a better product, see Android.
