Simply amazing! I saw it on the news the other day... But how tall is it actually? We never got to see that on the video... Hope it isn't another colossus, like Zune.

It sounds really promising, as it seems to be as much of a technology platform as a product. Lots of possibilities ahead one would assume.

This tech is.. What.. Three years old now? Microsoft just bought a working tech and rereleased under their own name.. Hey, that's how Windows started off in the first place!

Yes old technology but with the Microsoft branding it will explode. Might be time to lay into some stock.

So what if it's three years old, now it's coming to the masses. Just because your a Mac-user (aka: Total Dick) doesn't mean that anything Microsoft does is crap. This is awesome.

This Should have been the video uploaded here. It's made by Popular Mechanics and actually explains things about the tabletop computer.

That company can be happy the microsoft bought the idea! They get a truck load of money and the thing will actually sell. Becouse of the microsoft name.
Wait... (guest)  -  June 4, 2007, 10:14
Yeah right... just drop the camera on tha table and all the pictures pop up. In the real world you will get a freakin' big hourglass on the table and you can sit and drink up your coffee before all the pictures have been loaded and pop up like that.

How do you know that? Or are you just assuming because it is Microsoft that it sucks? Look, MS has its drawbacks but I've freaking had it with people treating it like it's the Pinto of computing technology. Those Mac commercials? They leave alot out about the ACTUAL Mac. You don't upgrade Macs, you throw them out and get new ones.

Well, you don't upgrade macs because they build them so you don't HAVE to upgrade. Windows PCs kinda suck right out of the box, so you have to buy a camera and a lot of additional software to get what macs tend to do already. At any rate, I'm happy that this technology is finally happening, and I don't care if Microsoft makes it big. I just don't want to see an "end now" button or a giant X every time I set my camera down. Speaking of which, what happens if you set multiple items down by accident? Wouldn't that freeze the program? Oh well. Still an awesome concept, and there's always room for improvement later down the road.

yeah it's 'cool' but the only problem with this tech. is that it only widens the gap between low and high classes even more. stop buying into this crap and maybe one day we can all live like human beings taking care of each other, instead of just ourselves. the world is a friggen outdoor mall feeding the masses! baa baa

yah... now gues how much is that gonna cost? now add what it will cost to get a camera that can link up with it. Besides, not everything microsoft makes is crap (windows are but then again everything is made to work on windows so you can't realy use beter things like Linux since you might just not access some programs)

boring, time consuming, expensive, unnatural. although, it may be good as a toy, or maybe interface for older ppl...

PC vs Mac argument is the geek version of the idiotic redneck argument Ford vs. Chevy (Hint BTW, these days BOTH suck! Americans can't make cars anymore). Who gives a shit?! The ultimate balance of power vs. cost is Linux running on Intel/AMD hardware, but lots of folks don't have the time/knowledge to support it for themselves. So the Windows or Mac choice is all they have, each has strengths and weaknesses. Anybody who gets ego wrapped up in a brand/tool . . . IS a tool!
