It is clear (to me anyway) that two of the most exciting improvements for the Surface Line are the Power Cover (providing up to 25 hours usage on the Surface Pro 2 according to MS) and the docking station. Awesome, can't wait to buy them when the SP2 releases! Oops, what? Not until 2014 AFTER the holidays? Huh? Typical MS. They always miss their moment don't they? They never get it right the first time and when it finally seems like they might, they take forever to bring it to market. So what is the issue? Aren't these products ready now? It's not like they are inventing cold fusion here. Answer? Greed. If a current SP owner can just buy a power cover for $200 and get all day usage, why upgrade to the SP2? MS wants to see how many people upgrade before they release the product which makes upgrading unnecessary. I mean sure the SP2 has some benefits over SP but the 800 lb gorilla in the room is the battery life, isn't it? And pricing? The touch cover should be $79, the type cover $99 and the power cover $129. Again, MS greed gets in the way of actually making money. I'm not sure what it costs MS to make a power cover but I'm pretty sure it costs A LOT less than $200 (since I can buy an entire tablet for that). Some people wonder why I rag on MS so much? THIS is why. I have a large legacy commitment to MS products and it drives me nuts when they just can't get out of their own way. Now that they are into hardware they still have their software monopoly mindset. Dear MS, it is not longer your way or the highway. You MUST compete.
