Microsoft may be redesigning the Surface in order to make it more appealing to consumers. Current rumors point to a sphere-shaped Surface, which may or may not have been making the rounds in Redmond’s rec rooms. Apparently the thinking is that the current table-top design of the Surface isn’t consumer friendly enough, never mind the fact that we’re still several years out from the device reaching a consumer’s price. That’s just a factor of time, though; it’s up to Microsoft to convince us that we need something like Surface in our homes.
It’s probably one of those things you need to use in order to become a believer. They won over Hickey, that must count for something.
