Microsoft is really pushing their new Surface tablet and touchscreen OS. I have been seeing constant ads on Hulu+ (I don’t have cable tv – Cut the Cord, Baby!!!), subway posters, and now they even have a kiosk set up in the Columbus Circle/Time Warner Building mall. There were eight employees running the small booth, I guess in preparation for a huge onslaught of curious passers-by.
In all fairness, though, I did take a spin through the Surface and it is actually really, really cool. I liked the execution of the keyboard but not the texture of it. It had a toothy, rubbery feel to it. Microsoft needs to come up with a better solution for the keyboard surface itself. Very cool idea though. Did Ballmer finally get something right???
