Surface Computing

I guess I won't be selling my Microsoft stock this year. I was having some doubts, but then today I stumbled across this article on Microsoft Surface on the Popular Mechanics website.

Finally, a computer that my pre-kindergarten kids can use to print their own digital photos, instead of asking me!

Microsoft Surface computers will be available in limited distribution to specific corporate partners at the end of 2007.

David Pogue of the New York Times points out that there's not that much new about Microsoft's Surface computer. However, what Microsoft is historically good at is marketing, refining ideas and getting market share.

Since the business and home market for Surface computing is practically zero today, its likely to grow.

Maybe in the future this could even be incorporated into game systems and we could PlayAnywhere.

I know I'd buy one for my kids...(or myself!)
