A void

So, we know where Microsoft is going to put pop-up stores over the holiday so you can, uh, buy your loved ones Surfaces, but we don’t know when the Surface will be released or how much it’ll cost.

Meanwhile, we also have no idea when Windows Phone 8 and, therefore, the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 are coming (rumors are it’ll be November).

Back in grade school, there was a kid who would spend the entire class shuffling through his folder insisting “I did the homework. I know I did it.” only to admit at the end of class that he had not, in fact, done the homework.

I don’t know why I’m relating that particular anecdote right now.
