WHY I'M A TECH FAN?
'CAUSE TECH IS FABULOUS!
I've seen the demo of the Microsoft table and I can see similarities in ideas. However, there is room for both technologies since the stationary and more expensive Microsoft table may be more confined to restaurants and businesses, while this device will be more personal and mobile. This development is ingenious as it is, so I can't wait to see its development. When Nexus One came out, some people were prematurely predicting that it would be the iPhone killer, when the truth was, it didn't offer much more originality. But this type of development has the potential to be the iPhone killer and some! We look at the development of phones alone in our lifetime and see an amazing evolution, in which many applications and once-separate devices have been integrated into the modern phone. Considering the progress we've seen in phones, I find this type of advancement in technology inevitable and expected. (From Luis Sepúlveda threads)
