This is a discussion on Surface RT within the Off-Topic forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Microsoft’s Surface RT hits Staples December 12 - SlashGear...
In England, they are available in John Lewis, I saw it there for the first time today
iPad 3 Retina, 16gb wifi only
iPhone 4s 16gb white
13 inch Macbook Pro i5
Apple Airport Express
Forget Jailbreaking, I know what that means. And perhaps the Surface will be rooted or "jailbroken" or hacked so you can do things Applesoft or Microapple (Microsoft introduceded Surface to tie the MS Fanboys to one ecosystem and we all know MS/Android/Blackberry wants to be Apple, that is just a fact I made up so it is true) will not allow.
So we need a new term and I gots me one.
I decided to introduce a new term: "Softened." Rooting is generally for Android tablets and phones. Jailbreaking is ours, Dag Nabbit. Both rooting/jailbreaking 'softens' the restrictions imposed by Apple and Android phone/tablet makers. So we combine the 'soft' part of Microsoft and 'often" because every MS user usually does all kinds of things to mane their systems act properly, quite often, because, it is, well, a Microsoft product. Smiley.
You are left with "Soften."
It is setteled. We have Rooting and Jailbreaking and Soften. Or Softening. I should develop some software and sell it on the net. I think the Internet is now open 24 hours per day so I'll get rich super quickly fast.
As for Blackberry, who cares. Only Ari Gold uses them and his show was cancelled.
As for now, I will not buy one. I am mad at MS. The phones are as ugly as a boiled dragon, the GUI looks like it was designed by kids in craft class and if you buy a new PC running Win8, that darn UEFI/BIOS Bootloader thing might mean your new PC running Windows 8 might forever run 8 because until someone cracks or hacks the BIOS/OS/Whatever, you cannot install anything else, including Linux or my favorite, Microsoft Bob.
I will stick with my iPad Mini. I mean my iPod. Or perhaps my underpowered iPad 1, better known as the iPod Maxi. Perhaps an iPad Mini or as I like to call it, the Apple HalfAPad. Or a QuarterPod. I lost track of the products but Apple should hire me.
I would release matching iPad/iPhone Gift Sets for Christmas in red and green for $225.00 plus tax. Perhaps lower the price of the new iPhone 6 to 129.95. Or, my favorite product, an iPhone running Android. That would get more sales dollars into Apple diminishing coffers and IT WOULD TICK OFF ANDROID USERS! They could not complain about Apple's OS or moan about crappy phones. Their heads would spin and they will explode.
After that, it is time to introduce the 49.99 AppleBerry. Then AppleT&T will arrive and we will purchase Microsoft with the change we get from the vending machines in the Worker's Breakroom.
"Ve vill crush you," so say our Overlords. If you see those words on a T-Shirt, better head them because Apple will be the last thing standing.
Apple will eventually become part of our DNA through injections. If you read the next Apple/itunes TOS, you must have a shot or they cancel your Apple account and itunes eats your music. The often talked about Men In Black will visit you and use one of thse little flashy things on your brain. I mean Men in Red.
I just saw a documentery on basic cable and in the half-hour video, Steve was introducing a new device that actually melds iDevices with the human body and it is self-sustaining in that those connected to the device are fed by the person in front. Amazing Apple tech.
It was an amazing documentry. Anyone here see it?
I read where Microsoft also wants to open a store in CC. They applied for some sort of permit or what have you.
The "fake but it almost looks real because it is real, because it is carries water from the real natural City Creek hence the name City Creek" Mall will run red with Apple juice if they oppose the Great and Powerful Microsoft! Long Live Microsoft..."Ve Vill Crush You" so say my Microsoft Overlords. All I know is Android is banned. Or perhaps I made that up.
As for BlackBerry, they make nice pies.
Then she connected me to thMicrosoftft Help Center in India, and I spoke to some Indian chap named Pahkatos Owyeen. (Translates to Five Wounds, if my Cherokee to English translator is any good) He said "Thank You, Come Again." So I thanked him and I said "mosdefinitelyly, I will indeed arrive once again to partake in youbountifullyll wisdom" and he said "thank you, Pale eyes, come again." How he knew my given Indian name, I will never know.
I wanted to suggest that they can open a small store and go from there. If they have a hard time of it, perhaps they can add sunglasses as a side line. Everyone in the mall goes nuts over cheap sunglasses. If you do not believe me, remember, some long haired freaky rock group sang about Cheap Sunglasses which is why they sell so well in malls. I know there ivacancyency because the BJerkyrkey card folded; the space is open.
