    After the huge Win8 release yesterday and the Surface Official launch after that, I'm disappointed and suprised really that when I searched 'Surface Tablet' this morning on Bing, 75% of the headlines in the first 4 pages were "Apple CEO Tim Cook says Microsoft Surface is a 'compromising' and 'confusing' product. Oy.

    I know bad press is good as well, but Really? Noone reported on the midnight launch? Judging from the pics I just saw here it was madness in NYC.

    Thanks

    CBC News picked up on the launch event and was quite positive.

    Its an apple dominated world mates, and Microsoft is the company that it's cool to hate, and people do love to hate them. No surprise that the launch was barely covered. Is it the first stage, denial? :)

    Meanwhile, Apple's multi-product launch was practically a non-event compared to the iPhone 5 event. It was like they were announcing iYawn. The tide may be turning back to Microsoft.

    I don't watch the news but I am surprised I am not hearing of reports of this being on TV. When the iPhone 5 launched they were talking about it's affect on the economy. This has a much larger potential for the economy than the iPhone.....doesn't it?

    People have been holding off buying tablets, laptops, and desktops because they knew a new OS was coming. New app store bringing revenue in an OS that previously did not have one. This is on sale in far more stores than the iPhone therefore requiring more jobs. Hmmm.

    Maybe I should turn on my TV, there has to be something.
