Yesterday, Microsoft officially announced their own Windows-branded product for the burgeoning tablet market, the Surface. With the release of Microsoft Surface into the wild along with the iPad and numerous Android tablets, the tablet market is bound to become better for consumers, thanks to that lovely word “competition.” The Surface features touchscreen and gesture technology (based on a feature of the upcoming Windows 8/RT operating systems) , a scratch-resistant case and even a built in stand. The cover for the device is also a multi-touch keyboard, which comes in handy as you can also utilize Windows 8/RT in the classic desktop-style mode without even using the touchscreen. WOW!!!

The world of technology is full of success, but is mostly filled with failed, struggling and missed opportunities. This list created by Seth Porges of Gizmodo contains some companies and their products that, at one time, were very successful & innovative, but lacked any type of follow-through. Many of the companies on this list had a great handle on a huge market or were the first to venture into a new one, and just let it slip away. Maybe they couldn’t expand fast enough, didn’t see that they were on to something huge, but somewhere along the way they tuned themselves out, and their ideas were scavenged and made successful by others.
It appears that this past weekend, a Quality Assurance tester at Traveler’s Tales (TT) Games (LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Batman, et al.) had tweeted an image of a Wii U tablet controller that appears to have undergone a slight redesign since last seen at last year’s E3 event. As of now, the tweet in question had been removed, but thanks to the “magic” of the screen shot, the image shall live for-evv-vuur.
