re: Microsoft Surface Coming To Store Near You?
I was playing with a Surface this morning in a meeting with MSFT. Very interesting device. As a journalist, seems like a nice compromise on form factor G I'm always debating whether to bring my iPad or MacBook to take notes on. One is easier to type on, but clunky; the other is sleek, but leads to sore fingers.

If, back in 1958, you had taken that Edsel and put it up on blocks in the back of the barn with a tarp over it, it would be worth what? today ?

Windows sales were down when XP came out also, XP also had mixed reviews . . . XP is STILL in use by millions.

Interesting that MS through their head fanboy Thurott is claiming they were intending to distribute through stores even though MS announced they would "only" distribute on line and in MS stores. Someone is lying.

By the way, it really doesn't matter how many stores carry unwanted stuff. It's still unwanted. Question: How soon before it's distributed through Big Lots?

If Microsoft wants to sell more Surface RTs they should drop the price. Half of what they charge will make it a really interesting gadget. Right now it is just too friggin expensive.
