What the? You mean the Gmail address where you sent the “What’s On” newsletter to begin with? Google, you know the “G” in Gmail means Google right? You of all companies should not have to ask me to type in my email address. Especially when unsubscribing from your newsletter from within your email system!
Thoughts on the Microsoft Surface
I had a nice long post typed out and then just deleted it. I’ve read thousands and thousands of words written on the Surface so far and I see no reason to write the same stuff. When people ask me my thoughts on a product they really just want to know if I think they should buy it or not. My answer for the Surface is no, don’t bother. But I will give you a quick reason why.
From all the material I’ve read and the few minutes I’ve personally spent with a Surface I think it’s an unfinished product that tries to do too much and ends up confusing and frustrating users. If your idea of a tablet comes from the product that has defined what a tablet is (iPad) then I believe you’ll be disappointed with the Surface.
You know what though? They make return policies for a reason. Go buy a Surface and try it. My guess is the only line you’ll be standing in for a Surface is the return line.
If you want a tablet, buy an iPad. If you don’t want an iPad, think about why you don’t want an iPad and then do some research, you’re probably wrong and an iPad would be great for you. If you’re absolutely sure an iPad is not for you, do not buy an Android tablet, buy a Microsoft Surface.
