Microsoft's Courier 'digital journal'



Microsoft's Courier 'digital journal'.

I saw this on engadget the other day, thought I'd share it with you guys.

What do you guys this? If they make this, would you prefer it over the iPad? :P

wow. I would totally love having that to write notes in class. that seems really awesome~ I would only worry about the battery power~ Some of my professors don't allow laptops cause they hate the tapping sounds of the keyboard during lecture~ but that would be awesome ;D

i prefer this over ipad....
im sure the pen there is for looks since it'll most likely have the an onboard keyboard like the ipad
HOWEVER
this is much smaller and looks different...

for once, MS is different and not Apple
apple's ipad is iphone x 8 (i mean itouch) since it cant even fucking make phone calls nor have a camera...

given apples track record on proprietary software, unwillingness to incorporate anything from companies who don't bow to their will, and the price, I would definitely prefer this over the iPad which I don't plan on buying anyways.

I am in the market for a good ebook reader thats not too expensive.

APPARENTLY
Apple is not marketing their product to YOU
It is for those who needs more than an ebook
its for those who wants ebook that can watch movies from the itunes and games from their appstore as well

which the 3 things you mentioned
those ppl dun MIND it since somehow their are rich or something

1. People don't know.
2. "Rich" people don't mind.
3. People care about branding and/or go with the trend.

Hence, this feeds the market and those companies can continue what they do and earn like nobody's business because people supports them (blindly) even they if sell expensive, have many restrictions, already outdated, etc.

Seriously, if a product is good, then it's good. If it's not, no point protecting blindly over it, else it can never improve and the company can continue to feed on this. If one wants to move on, should learn to accept a product is already old and needs a refresh and so on.

When iPhone first launch, it was "WOW!" and beats most of the smartphones flat and also makes all other companies go back to their drawing board, brainstorm, come up with new competition. Sorry to say, iPhone was actually already an old news for quite some time, there're many better competitors for quite sometime; and look at the pathetic iPad, it was nothing spectacular. One would imagine Apple would come up something spectacular, but no.
Possibly the next iPhone might make a new appearance, hopefully? But if the trend continues, we might see something like iPhone 2G -> iPhone 3G -> iPhone 3GS (and same goes for iPod Touch). This is rubbish honestly.

I'm in no support of any brand, if any company can come up with a better product, it's good news for us consumers and they bring competition to the market, even better if they start competing prices, design, build quality, etc.

yea been wanting a ebook reader as well, but was waiting for color versions to come out for magazines.

i was disappointed with the Ipad as well, just a giant Iphone, Itouch and needing a new fee to get 3g service if u already have an iphone it too much for me.

the demo video of this MS Courier seems really nice though, have see how reviews are for this.

dude i totally agree with u
but what pisses me off is when ipad came out and when 3gs came out
everyone went bizzerk
im like WTF
what happen to ppl thinking straight
slappin on a apple logo wont make it a godly item all the time

in fact, think about it
where the fuk did the macbook air go when it was considered the PWNAGE light laptop
ummmm
hmmmmm

but as i said
i totally agree with u
i have iphone since it IS a good product, i have good experience so far...
however, everything else im iffy on it since its not like there are no competitors out there
right now, im leaning towards android as something to try out

this thing looks wayyyyy tooo good to be true. They make it seem like it could do anything, but i'm sure the real thing wont be this creative. Like i remember when Microsoft brought out promo reels for Microsoft Surface. haven't seen that anywhere in the market.



if a girl likes you enough to spend a lot of time with you, its already one of two things. either she really likes you, or you're one of her best girlfriends. you got tits? no? didnt think so. -temjin

I think it's really nice but like you said, it seems too good to be true.
I don't really like the iPad, but they'll probably do some similar apps later on.

But I do think it's useful for a designer.

My professors don't allow us to use laptops in class because they know we're not paying any attention at all lol.
