I was, as is my habit after drinking an organic decaf soy latte, browsing through my local Apple Store, reminiscing with the Apple Geniuses about how Steve Jobs used to bake these wonderful pies (Apple, of course!), when I got a call on my iPhone 5. Sadly, my hands were full - I was buying another iPad Mini. So when I'd finished my transaction I immediately iMessaged my boss to find out what he wanted to chat about. When he told me I was going to be reviewing the Microsoft Surface, my beret almost fell off in surprise!

ManOfTeal: If you go in already having a benchmark. How can you be objective?

Seriously. And that goes for all those car reviewers who have driven another car before. And book reviewers who have read a book before. And music reviewers who have listened to music before.

Don't know a thing about Surface... I just know that the commercials are beyond ridiculous. Trying waaaaaaaaaay to hard to be hip.

I'd like to know how many Microsoft execs were involved in the development of this thing. It's something that only a large committee of vice presidents could come up with.
