One gets the feeling that Balmer's subconscience wants to destroy the company
I just looked at the Surface Pro at the local Best Buy. It's designed by a committee of C+ students. It's too bulky. It apparently has only one position when propped up The sound icon is not readily available on the screen. The sound itself is weak ( at least on five you tube video I tested.). It appears to get too warm. In regard to Windows 8 , why would any sensible consumer want to learn new way of computing when they are comfortable with their current system ( Window 7 et al). Why would they want to pay more to have a touch screen that they have to lean toward their computer ever time they wanted to touch the screen?
