Microsoft Surface Computing Parody

Dr Natural

Have you heard of Microsoft's desktop follow-up Surface Computing? It is a table size multi-touch screen only, eliminating mechanical intermediaries like the mouse and keyboard between you and your computer. Now that's a transparent interface!

Surface computing is not only expected to provide a great leap forward in collaborative computing and the exchange of digital data, but also a great leap in business revenue for Microsoft. The video presents a twisted take on one of Microsofts latest and greatest announcements. Truth be told, We actually WANT a Surface Computer, but since we cannot afford one, we thought it might be fun to make fun of it.

Good post! So this is where Microsoft takes it? :P Let me tell you what the real next step is:
Moving objects on a Big Ass Table with your eyes..
No wait... Moving Big Ass Tables with your mind
No wait... Moving Big Asses into Open Source Free–to–the–Public–Restrooms that get instantly wiped by Micro Soft Toilet Paper when done.
Now that's advancement. :-D

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
