Microsoft scrapped plans for Friday night's launch of its Surface Pro tablet at the Best Buy store in New York City because of an impending blizzard meteorologists have dubbed "Nemo." "Surface Pro launch activities in NYC have been canceled due to weather," said Microsoft spokesperson Dani Reese. "Our best wishes to everyone impacted by the blizzard." The cancellation is yet another bit of bad luck for the ill-fated Surface Pro; its launch was initially scheduled for January.

Why are you comparing the Surface Pro to the iPad? It has nothing in common with the iPad other than being a tablet. It's much closer competitor is the MacBook Air. How does it compare in size, weight, cost, battery life, etc. to the MBA? By your logic are you suggesting the iPad could replace the MBA for the same reasons?

I can find a lot of irrelevant comparisons that are lighter, cheaper. etc. but what's the point? They don't do the same thing so they're not really a potential replacement.

What do you think of politically inspired Internet memes?
They tend to be brutally honest about their targets.
They're usually cheap shots based on lies.
They're often stupid but amusing.
They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
