Oprah has added the Microsoft Surface as one of her “favorite things” for 2012. “The Surface, Microsoft’s first tablet, feels like a Mercedes-Benz to me, people! The full-size keyboard built right into the cover makes work easy, the very smart kickstand makes watching a movie or Skyping a friend a delight, the less than a pound-and-a-half weight makes a great alternative to a laptop, and the many other features make it fun for work and play. Now, that’s a wowser!” said Ms. Winfrey. This is a HUGE endorsement for the Microsoft Surface, but my guess is that it will do not much in terms of shifting less iPads.
