Windows "There may be a time in the future when all the bugs have been fixed, the third-party app support has arrived, and some very smart engineers in Redmond have ironed out the physical kinks in this type of product which prevent it from being all that it can be. But that time isn't right now - and unfortunately for Microsoft, the clock is ticking." The Verge's review is not so positive, because they focus on what Surface is now.

"The Verge's review is not so positive, because they focus on what Surface is now."

That is the PURPOSE of a product review! How can a reviewer speculate as to what a product WILL become and be credible? Reviews are based on observation and testing, both of which have nothing to do with the future.

Speculation is for fanboys and dreamers. Reviews SHOULD be pragmatic.

That's not really true particularly in ~IT industry.

NVM how the size of company, its position, and expected support play major role down the line - the consumers themselves certainly look also at the future when buying, not only at the present (Osborne effect anyone?)
