[A Microsoft Surface. No, really. Honest.]

I apologize for the horrible quality on this one. All I had on me was the camera on my cell phone, which had no flash and performs really poorly in low light. I debated on cutting this picture entirely, but the subject matter is such a hot deal that I couldn't leave it out.

This is a heavily processed photo of the much-hyped Microsoft Surface. I wasn't able to play with it directly, but I did watch a portion of a demonstration. I think the concepts are extremely intriguing, and I can see a lot of non-technical people finding its interface a lot more intuitive than most modern computers currently are. I should also point out that I saw more than a few competitors and/or rip-offs of the Surface around the exhibition floor, so Microsoft is far from the only player in town.
