Mary Jo Foley has an interview with Microsoft’s Panos Panay which had me shaking my head at several points. There’s a lot of the same “People are frustrated by tablets!” language that, ugh, OK, whatever, Microsoft. There’s also a pretense that they’re competing with Apple when really what they’re trying to do is be the Apple of Windows devices.

Then this bit by Foley jumped out at me:

The new hinge and kickstand on the device will allow users a lot more viewing angles.

Tablets don’t have viewing angle limitations. Neither do laptops, really.

Microsoft is still solving problems with the Surface that it created.
