Q/I've built an entire career on MS products including Windows products that sold over $100M/yr.
MS products have been far from awful, they've been very very good to me./Q
Ahh I see, you're an MS repairman!
Q/Seriously, I've wanted to carry my entire computing life in my pocket since I've read Arthur C. Clarke's "Imperial Earth" as a kid and we're finally getting close, so of course I'm excited!/Q
Arthur has a lot to answer for. Pity he didn't see what was really coming. Too late now.
Q/... a fair trade IMO for having a truly mobile office./Q
That would be progress? Surely you remember the good ol'days when telephones were in big red boxes, and at work?
And home was home.
Q/ ...and I'm sure the fine people at Toys 'R Us will be happy selling those toys to tots when an adult tablet finally comes to town./Q
+Chuckle+ An easy way to compare current tablets is to go to a mall and sample the connected ones on show. Within minutes you can walk round and compare the very best Samsung, Sony, Blackberry, and Apple have to offer. MS are a no-show.
It's a quick lesson in ergonomic design you won't forget.
Apple's competitors are "Flumoxed" indeed.
