    CEO Ballmer uses an 80-inch touchscreen running Windows 8 for communications and productivity in his office, and the technology will hit the market "eventually."

    lol you mean to tell me that a CEO of a major company fusses around with a Metro Start screen?

    “It's touch-enabled and it's hung on his wall.”

    So he gets up out of his comfy chair to play around with this on his wall and touch it instead of lampin' out? If I was CEO, I'd be chillin' instead and not touching the walls lol.

    He's probably using Kinect with it when not using the touchscreen.

    When I saw the thread title, I had a good laugh. I have taken "tablets" tool large to comfortably swallow, in the past, but that beats them all. Hardly a "tablet" computer. But when I read the article, I could see that wasn't what MS had said.

    Wow, I really had no idea doctors are using XBOX360 hardware to do surgeries or really that the hardware was used outside of the game console.

    Very surprising to me. Thanks for posting.

    Hi there
    Does he actually use a Spreadsheet !!!

    This type of app just won't fly on a tablet / touch screen no matter how big the screen size is.

    Mind you if he's the CEO then he probably gets all his minions to do the work. If it were me I'd chuck the tablet in the bin and have a Golf Simulator or a Jet pilot simulator installed in my office and I'd be busy with those toys during the day.

    Cheers

I'm sold. There, I said it, I want one. The other day I was poking around some Windows tablets out on display at the amazon showroom and picked up the 8 inch Windows tablets. Before, my experience with such was playing with a Dell Venue Pro 8 and that was just something that boggled my mind....
