Surface as the name of their old touch screen tables... and that tech's been used/abused by the media for sometime.

Well on a more serious note,

in our business lives we need integrated technologies and software to be productive.

Is this Hub the way forward ??

Or is it better that we all sit hunched over a PC in a cubicle ??

Personally I think integrated software that runs on any device be it google, apple or microsoft or ubuntu
is more important than having a big touch screen that we can all play with.

The major problems businesses have is usually things like marketing's software doesn't communicate well or at all with distribution's software and accounting's software doesn't talk with billing's software.

The biggest challenges business faces could be solved by better software not big touch screens.

But its an interesting concept. But do Modern businesses need tech like this, will they pay the money for it ??

I could see big security hub's at shopping malls and stadiums investing in tech like this but not anyone else.

I do not think these are two sides of the same argument. The hub is just that - a nexus for folk.. a PC in a cube is not a social wheel.

It'll be nice in a collaborative sense, but not something you'll hunch over to plink out the keys for coding.

I would disagree, and I would also contend they are not mutually exclusive. MS is making strides to ratchet up a tool for compiling things on different OSs and still has space to make a hub nicer.

AGain.. not mutually exclusive.

Yes, I've touched one.. well.. the 1.0 version that is.

That's it? What about doctors collaborating on treating a patient? Local PD strategizing? A new use for a coffee table as a family center for entertainment, videos, pictures, etc. Presentations ket a kick in the rear and you cant put a little more 'big news media' spin on it. Unified Id or universal apps means things can be transferred as needed. Educational options as well.
