Microsoft’s Surface was not the first Touch Table. But it rapidly became the most widely deployed and with an extensive network of partners it was quickly supported by many mission-focused applications. It is a serious platform that has many solutions and tools built upon it. I’ve also seen it used for entertainment and gaming. So this system will be around and as it scales prices will drop and overall this will be a virtuous addition to the technology ecosystem.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t poke fun at it! The Microsoft Surface makes for great parody! If you have time for a laugh check out the clip below. It uses video from an official Microsoft commercial and a voiceover by a SarcasticGamer.com
