Microsoft has something nice brewing

and it’s not beer. It is the first of its kind in terms of a commercially read product; a new surface computer product, called the highly unimaginative, Microsoft Surface. The first sets of computers will be shipped in November to corporate customers.

Basically a surface computer is a huge touch screen monitor, but a thousand times better. Surface technology works “By using your hands or placing other unique everyday objects on the surface – such as an item you’re going to purchase at a retail store or a paint brush – you can interact with, share and collaborate like you’ve never done before.”

The surface computer will run on a 30″ tabletop and will open many more computing possibilities, but does it cost too much? Reuters says that it will cost up to US$10,000, but Microsoft does hope that the price will drop in the next three to five years after launch as they start to also launch it in different forms apart from a coffee table shape.

A good example of what Microsoft Surface could mean in everyday situations. They say to imagine sitting at a restaurant, when you place your drink on it, the computer then brings up information, “such as wine pairings with a restaurant’s menu.”

Their website they have launched to accompany the new product unveiling has been done quite well, imo.

    Enterprise coupon rate does not include 23% or lower tax and/or additional surcharges, $0.20 or less per mile for excess miles, vehicle licensing fees of $4 or less per day, refueling fees, additional driver fees and optional damage waiver of $29.99 or less per day, which are the responsibility of the renter.

    It only calls for separating your coupons by categories. I rate Thrifty with only four stars simply because enterprise coupon codes are on the smaller side, but renting from Thrifty a great overall value.
