Microsoft Windows? That's so 20th century - try Tables

In their increasingly desperate search for the next 'big' thing (sorry), it looks like Microsoft really have lost their direction - It's called Microsoft Surface, and it is real! (why didn't they just call it Table?)

The video on the other hand, is a parody, and sums up Microsoft's furniture based computing concept better than Microsoft ever could.  On the up side at least the device could be the focus of a launch party; table top dancing, or - wait for it; as a surface for your drinks and nibbles.  Is there no end to their creativity? Those crazy Microsoft boffins demonstrate yet again that desperation really is the father of innovation...

'Gestures'?  I know what gestures I want to make...

  2. @RT - I know who would win that battle... Perhaps Ikea should move into operating systems, just a big flat pack of bytes you have to assemble yourself.
