    Just a thought - MS is heavily promoting the Surface through TV advertising, but it seems like they're not showing the strengths of the platform. No mention of Office being included, no mention of Skydrive, no mention of the ease of desktop integration. It seems like they are more proud of the "CLICK" than the productivity features. Almost everytime I've used my Surface in a public space, it gets a lot of very positive attention and most people are very impressed with the fact that Office is part of the package. I know cloud storage is not new but for me the inclusion of Office and Skydrive allows me the ability to easily work on projects while traveling and that appeals to many professionals. MS could certainly do a better job in my opinion.

    Perhaps they are prioritizing their market strategies. Maybe once the "newness" of the click is well established, they may start to focus on other features.

    I've also thought their ads are pretty lame and fail to tell anyone why they should want one.

    Perhaps the best Surface RT commercial I've seen so far!

    They are trying to appeal to the Ipad crowd, where capability and features just dont matter - Its just gotta be Cool . . . . . .

    According to some recent surveys teens find iPhones and iPads dull and boring, while Android phones and Microsoft Surface are the new Cool!
