on the “surface” . . .
if you watch the CM on TV touting the Microsoft “Surface” tablet, what they don’t tell you is that the RT sells for $499.99 USD and you don’t get the “pen” to scribble with . . . and that you really should upgrade to the 32 GB model cos the operating software seriously compromises the total available space if you only have a 16 GB memory . . .
The Surface keyboard is smaller than the iPad keyboard . . . and a Bluetooth Microsoft accessory keyboard costs $129.99 USD . . . you can get a padded folio with a Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad 2 for $70.00 USD.
Let’s see . . . the Surface tablet battery life is like 4 hours shorter than the iPad, and there is no yearly subscription renewal for iPad productivity software . . . subscription renewal WTF ?!
If you buy an app for the iPad what you get is frequent updates for NOTHING N-O-T-H-I-N-G . . . and the apps will do basically everything the Microsoft crap will do . . . apps for the iPad cost anywhere from $.99 to like $8.99 USD depending on productivity applications . . . a lot of the good apps are FREE !!! And no subsection fee . . . oh, I said that before . . .
The iPad has higher resolution cameras . . . front and back . . . OH comma and you can get an iPad with cellular capabilities . . . u-u-uh . . . might be nice in a business meeting . . . send an email or two . . . what . . .
A 16 GB iPad 4 sells for $499.00 USD . . . or if you want 128 GB, then it will cost $799.00 USD . . . the 128 GB Surface Pro is priced at $999.99 USD.
If you want an 128 GB iPad 4 with wifi and cellular capabilities, it will cost $929.00 USD . . . still cheaper than the Surface Pro with NO cellular options.
So if you like the snappy click klack paddy whack dance number on TV then go spend yer $$$ and the world will pass you by . . . on second thought . . . you won’t even notice that the real world has sailed on into the 25th Century . . . duh . . .
. . . shaddup I’m watching my iPad !!!
