I think Surface is more likely to compete with Zune and Kins for landfill space, than it likely to “compete” with iPad.

“AP and GfK survey: 52% has never heard about Windows 8”

And this surprises you?
52% of Americans have probably never heard of Evolution, Galileo, Copernicus,
or that Canada beat them in the War of 1812.
They will on the other hand be able to quote any useless futbawl statistic and be able to recite the names of every Light Beer in Mrrika or the names of everyone that has ever appeared on Oprah.

I really can’t believe MS is not leveraging Kinect technology in Win 8 and marketing the crap out of it. Windows 8 metro sounds like its made for Kinect style motions but instead they’re telling you to use a KB & mouse with a UI made for touch screens. Just shows how dysfunctional MS has become. If you don’t believe it, go read about why the MS Office team is “out if sync” with other MS products. It’s really unbelievable and you would never see this in a cohesive well run company.

@Oldd,

Why such hate for the US?
Is it something to do with hockey?

I like both countries.
