Microsoft's all singing all dancing new tablet demonstration. Can you guess what happens? I don't know if these people just have bad luck but it
crashes live on air. You can see the fear in his face, slightly masked of course.
For those of you who are unaware, Microsoft have developed their own tablet device to compete with Apple and all the other ones out there. It's called
Surface and seems to be a fairly standard tablet form, touchscreen computing device. It is being offered in 2 versions, a Windows 8 + Intel chip
version and a "Windows RT" + ARM chip version, the latter being presumably the cheaper version.
In case anyone is even remotely interested, ARM chips are used on many mobile devices but are not capable of running Windows, until now. The downside
is that the RT version of Surface will only be able to run Windows, a specially developed version of MS Office and a select few apps available at
their appstore due to hardware differences between the chips. The 2 tablets are technically as different as chalk and cheese but that doesn't
necessarily need to be a bad thing once people can freely exchange software, opensource style.
