Microsoft is following the same trends as everyone else, while trying to pretend they are doing something new and original. If it looks like stupidity, sounds like stupidity, and acts like stupidity, it probably is. Here's my opinion, in sarcasm form:
Oh boy, they're trying to make higher resolutions! I wish others would do that!
Oh boy, fast devices! I wish others would do that!
Oh boy, they're making "modern devices"! Gee, how original is that?!
