    My Chief Information Officer went to Seattle for work. It was some or other Microsoft conference. Anyway, he came back with a Surface tablet. It is wifi only and features windows 8. I'm sure further generations will accommodate 3G!!!

    The last thing I liked from MS from...Windows XP :D

    But...Surface was absolutely stunning! I am so happy to see MS catching up with the market. The touch keyboard is just wonderous. It has a sorta material finish. Very fine. Feels fantastic.

    It is slightly thick but that's because it caters for USB.
    All in all, I'm impressed and competition is good. Windows 8 is luscious.
    Have to admit though, I think I prefer Surface to my current iPad. I think the whole Windows feel to it makes me feel more comfortable. You really think you're working in your work Windows PC or something.

    Each to their own. Apple still leads the industry and is the leader. I just hope they can stay abreast cause Samsung and now MS is coming hard for their market share. iPhone 5 disappointed me massively. And so did the iPod 5G too. I hope this is temporary but it's evident in the share price that my sentiment is shared.
