Title of this article was pretty misleading. While the article itself was not bad, much of the information was not remotely related to Windows 8. Other than the cute pictures there was little need to make this into a Gallery/Slide Show other than to bump up the number of clicks for the website/article. I look for to more articles, but as the author here laments the lack of technical resources required to develop a hinge, some readers are hopefull that EETimes will continue to provide us with excellent technical articles.

Give us a little "I got the Windows 8 Blues," there Martin!

Rick, you've been watching too much Giant's baseball lately, "Cringe the Hinge". The interesting part, "The good news is there’s some real system level design needed again. The bad news is, almost no one is left in PC companies today who knows how to do it anymore." is well worth pondering over. The PC/Tablet market is moving into a "mixmaster" mode which will leave plenty to recycle before the right combination is found [i.e. something that sells]. This does not bode well for Microsoft or Intel though ARM appears to be positioned well...,

Everyone, myself included, would love to have another viable innovator in the tablet space, but this product is stillborn. It's obvious by the tone of "well, this sucks, but I'll reserve judgement in hopes it might go somewhere someday" the technical press is taking. M'soft just doesn't get it -- a half-functional cover keyboard isn't better than no keyboard at all.

I definitely cringe at (making a big deal about) the hinge, although it is what makes a tablet useful, as opposed to being an expensive toy. All sounds good to me, though. Win8 RT should be evolved into running all of the familiar Windows apps, as far as I'm concerned. It would be really interesting if Microsoft could move some of its center of mass over to ARM, no? As to Outlook? Naw. We use Outlook at work, we used to use Outlook Express at home, and we now use Windows Live Mail at home. It's perfectly fine, as far as I'm concerned, and is super easy to set up. You don't even have to know the SMTP and POP3 servers of your ISP! Try that with Outlook.

Don't cringe over the hinge. Don't resist the twist. Could be a new song about hybrids!

I have the same sentiments about the comprehensive slide show and pertinent running commentary. And my hat is off to Apple for Microsoft trying to become a user-friendly company after some many re-boots in the hardware arena. Coffe table with a large interactive screen; no thanks. Some personal time is sacred and should be savored. Drink up and think up of new ideas.

Great slideshow, Rick. I, for one, however, would not cringe when I hear about the new hinge. It's a visible and tangible improvement everyone can see in plain sight...and what's wrong with that?

Bet you wouldn't. You'd be forever polishing it to remove all those greasy fingerprints.

Love that IBM convertible.... :) But I'd kill for a coffee table with Microsoft surface on it!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
