I've read one too many "hands-on" reviews about Surface. I thought I'd write what I believe is a far more accurate "hands-off" review of what journalists actually got to do with the devices. Not much.

- What a fantastic review, both objective and most insightful to date.here's my question to you: why are they doing a surprise unveiling/press conference when they don't even have a working prototype of the hardware?
Edit: do you foresee any disruptive technology in the coming months that would steal their spotlight?Jun 23, 2012
- They did have working products. I mean, one guy was signed-in, so he clearly uses that one personally, probably a lot. I'm mystified about why they didn't let us use them, other than they're trying to do some type of Apple stealth play, maybe.Jun 23, 2012
- Thoroughly enjoyable and interesting article. I couldn't stop thinking of you as some sort of tech ninja/agent when you tried to figure out the resolution.Jun 23, 2012
- great post. I had the same reaction when I read the reviews even though I wasn't there. I also have trouble with the use of the word review for what actually should be considered a preview. I thought a review only meant a final analysis with final hardware. It was a bit perplexing seeing all those hands-on reviews of a piece of gadgetry that hasn't yet released and that people only had in their hands for a minutes at most.Jun 23, 2012
- Great post, I've been thinking the same thing while reading all of these link-bait titled articles about "hands on" which tell you nothing new.Jun 23, 2012
- Thanks for calling it out Danny. I was under the impression all the review till date were really 'hands-on'.Jun 24, 2012
