PMP Today: Does anyone remember the Surface? You know, the multitouch table from Microsoft. It can sync with Zune and your Bluetooth cellphone that rests on top of it. The Surface recognizes the device instantaneously and displays it on the table content so you can gesture and multi-touch photos and videos as you like. Such technology, surely, is years in the future for the average household.
Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO, on the other hand, thinks this year is the year of the Surface. Microsoft already has a few customers with pockets and deep enough to order the Surface but the company has bigger plans for the technology. They think they can sell it to ordinary folks like you and me.
