The "big" news of yesterday was the announcement by Microsoft of their new iPad competitor tablet called "The Surface." We found this amusing comic that suggests the new Surface will have a really tough fight vs. the iPad. As you can see in the comic, the iPad has destroyed any and all previous rivals (mostly Androids) that have risen up to challenge its dominance, which is somewhat true. The comic suggests that the new MS Surface Tablet will have a similar fate. We don't necessarily agree with that sentiment, but who knows the future. Perhaps the new MS Tablet will finally compete effectively with the iPad. Also, whose to say the comic doesn't have it backwards in its fictionalized universe. Maybe this new MS tablet is "NEO" and the iPad is "Mr. Smith." That analogy seems to make more sense actually...

Regardless of the outcome in real life, the above comic was funny and worth a...

Just last week, Microsoft sent a new patent proposal over to the U.S. Patent office. This new patent was for a power port that connects magnetically to the side of the device. This is very similar (but still has some distinguishing characteristics) to Apple's MagSafe-style connector on their Macbook Air laptops. Interestingly, some eagle-eyed editors over at Engadget seem to have noticed that on the side of the new Microsoft tablet, "The Surface," you can see a connector just like the one MS is trying to patent. Interesting! It looks as if Microsoft is trying to throw every high-tech advancement they can think of at their new iPad competitor. What do you guys think?

Of course the big news last night was Microsoft's announcement of their new Windows based tablet called "The Surface." During the press blowout, Microsoft released a pretty cool video commercial to showcase the new super-tablet. We shared it with you earlier, here. Of course, with the nature of the internet being what it is, you could probably guess it was inevitable that someone would use this video and redo it in some humorous and intriguing way. That has apparently already occurred, and the results are very funny.

Some enterprising folks moved quickly last night after the video was released and created a parody that makes fun of the potential reaction of Tim Cook from Apple and his team of p̶a̶t̶e̶n̶t̶ ̶t̶r̶o̶l̶l̶s̶ lawyers. The...
