My wife loves her iPad. It was a Christmas present from her loving family (i.e. me, my daughter and our two cats). However Microsoft has come out with a really nice looking product, hardware wise. I especially like the built-in keyboard. At this point, I’m still on the fence about the interface, Windows 8. Will it help people use the technology? Also from what I gather, it won’t hit the shelves till 2013, missing the year-end purchasing frenzy, which is bad business timing in my opinion if you’re trying to make a major splash against a good competitor.
