“Is that real water?” my friend asked when we looked at this MSNBC video….

Check out this video from the “Today” show…..Bill Gates demonstrates Microsoft’s latest “pc” called “Surface”—a table-shaped computer that responds to touch. 

See….

After watching the video, all I can say is….

I really need a new coffee table.

Microsoft’s new “pc” is something beyond a pc—it truly is a “Minority Report” virtual reality kind of device, except a lot more colorful and interesting. Microsoft is targeting a commercial audience because until the price comes down, an ordinary person would have to take out a second mortgage to get one. But from the video, this thing looks so cool that, I don’t know, it might be worth taking out a second mortgage to get one, you know?:-)
