Smart hinge? There are keyboard cases that make iPad just like MacBook Pro, like the following one. Similar models have been on market for 2 years. I guess Microsoft copied the idea on their surface. http://www.uplaytablet.com/sharksucker-aluminum-wireless-keyboard-case-for-ipad-make-your-ipad-becomes-macbook-air

Oooh...the GriD - that was a fun bit of machinery back in the mid-80s. I did a fair amount of business doing custom GriDs for electric utility companies. They had two empty ROM sockets onboard and a nifty little link to MS-DOS to make them run the software embedded in the ROMS. Chuck out my last unit about six years ago - sob - could have used it to kill this *#$! squirrel that keeps coming in my Window(s 8) VM.... ss/wb

For fun: Next Job? I figure that Ballmer's net worth is N times greater than the net worth of all of us that have added comments to EETimes. Sigh... and N is a depressingly large number.

I have a problem with the article's title: “Slideshow: 10 things you should know about Win 8”. It is 10 pages of mostly not Win 8 content. Page 1 – Mentions Win 8. Talks about Win 8 running on ARM-based SoCs. Talks about microprocessors. Page 2 – About Win 8. Discusses Win RT and Win 8 for x86. Page 3 – Mentions Win 8, but it’s a trip down memory lane. Page 4 – No Win 8. Another trip down memory lane. Page 5 – Mentions Win 8, but it’s about the form factor of the platform. Page 6 – Mentions Win 8, but it’s about selecting embedded hardware to run popular OSs. Page 7 – No Win 8. It’s about Microsoft’s hardware. Page 8 – About Win 8 and the user interface, window’s experience, and performance. Page 9 – No Win 8. It’s about tablets. Page 10 – Mentions Win 8 but it’s really about an application of Win 8. Bottom line, this article has a bogus title and teaches you very little about Win 8.

As this slide show aptly illustrates, Microsoft's inability to "get it right" is astonishing. Same with Intel. Why is it so hard for winning companies from one era to make the jump to the next?

I have a friend who is a software developer who recently switched from iPhone to Android because he can tinker with his Android handset.

I am sticking to Android-based systems out of principle. Many people around me are doing the same. The public is not gullible nowadays.

Not a bad idea but many people around me talked about it several years ago, it is not rocket science.
