I dumped my iPad for a Surface three weeks and couldn't be happier. With MS Office that comes pre-installed on the Surface I can actually use the device to get some work done. The iPad was clever when it was first introduced, but after only three years its now old technology. A $200 Microsoft tablet, which is rumored to be in development, will blow Apple and Samsung off the map.
Yeah, softie shills like you malign them as toys just as Microsoft has always maligned the Internet as "a fad", but they aren't toys. They, together with Android-based devices, are major threats to Microsoft's business model.
