I downloaded and installed Windows 8.1. It works a little better now. It is finally ‘usable’, say some tech commentators. The Surface 2 tablet will come out just about as Apple is to announce its iPad 5 and possibly an improved iPad mini. I know Windows are trying to lure some business users to the Surface with its Windows applications, but I for one cannot just see myself using the Surface 2 for work – ever. Even if some day my firm would be able to put all the PC apps on the Surface, there are the obstacles of pure physics. I need all 15 inches of my notebook computer’s screen, and I need a proper keyboard with keys and key caps. And my finger will never, ever be as sharp as a mouse pointer.
