Oh Microsoft, what have you done?


Poor, poor Microsoft. The same week that Apple brings the world the iPhone 2, Microsoft watches Google strike up a deal with the company it was once courting, Yahoo. And then it goes and unleashes this ridiculous piece of technology on the world, the Microsoft Surface tablet table. It’s the worst invention since the Zune. You have to see the video of the tablet table in action in Las Vegas to fully appreciate its awfulness. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to scratch your eyes out.


Oh Microsoft, what have you done?

  1. You gotta be kidding me. When the video and the creepy voiceover first started I almost panicked, I’m eating lunch at my office and I thought the thing was some kind of third-rate porn demo or something….Then I saw the table and thought it was a touch-screen version of Twister…ok, no, too small, but you can play team pinball (ultimate pinball?)…and now…cameras in the ceiling…?…which brings me back to my first impression, which was that this is somehow porn related….

    You gotta be kidding me.

  2. John King has had a pretty good year on CNN, thanks to something that looks a lot like a Surface.

  3. Yeah, but this is TOTALLY different! Can you order drinks and play ultimate team pinball and hit on hot strangers on John King’s pointy-pinch-your-head-board?
