Bill Gates Showing Expensive Table - Page 5

post #41 of 65
I think that they should focus more on bring the new technology (wireless camera/zune/creditcard) onto today's computers, especially laptops. I mean, it can't be much different than putting your camera on your laptop and having the same result. I'd be just as happy with that and it probably would be a lot less expensive to incorporate.

I mean come on, some of the new HP laptops even have thumb scanners! I remember when that was some crazy imaginative idea that would only be used in the CIA and stuff. Now I could have one on my laptop.

I agree the touchscreen looks really cool, and would be a lot faster and more natural than a mouse and normal keyboard. But some questions come up when looking at this. It uses cameras to judge your finger's positions and stuff, and it looked like it was lagging a little behind his finger. I am assuming that if you wanted to use a keyboard, it'd be on screen (would be very stupid and deprecating if you had to use a real keyboard), but how fast would one be able to type without it lagging behind you too much. I know I type pretty average speed, but the amount of errors I make is more than normal, so I use the backspace key a lot (and very fast lol). Maybe out of the beta phase this will be fixed.

Also, for everyone who is putting down Apple, just remember that the iPhone can accomplish all of the touch screen features (not wireless stuff... yet) and it can also fit nicely in your pocket.

But, despite all of my criticism, it does look like a lot of fun to play with. I just wonder how many Bill has to sell to make another billion

Probably $3200 because they will jack up the price of the projectors by twice. The hardware on that thing is nothing more than an AMD x2 6000 and a 8600 GTS

The software is by far the most expensive part.
Once again...

I bet you the software didn't take them half as long as they will say it will. With all the tech today, and the indian programmers, i bet you it took them about 5 months to develop all of it.

I like table. Me likey
post #46 of 65
bro why is everyone complaining on the price? the table isnt for homes, that one that is 10,000 is for rich businesses like T-mobile and restaurants and etc, thats why its so damn expensive. there are more videos on it, just search a little. you seriously think a company like microslop is stupid enough to try to sell a 10k product to everyday users? its meant for high businesses that can afford to buy in bundles. and they mention that in one of the videos i have seen, and thats the version to be out around 5 years. also in the same video they also plan to sell a watered down version to everyday users but thats not in the making yet, its just a concept and they of coarse gonna see how the success of it goes for the business version first. they're not that stupid, the mother****ers rich for a reason.

Obviously, you are not a programmer or have any analysis background. Coding some specs is one thing.... developing the design is another. To program a simple automated FTP job, it takes me 2 weeks for analysis, risk assessment, documentation, and testing. Actual code time is like 3hrs. It took them close to 4 years to develop Surface and they had some smart guys leading the project.

Seriously this new table is amazing, as other ppl mentioned i dont know why you other ppl are puttin it down. The Price isnt even that badd for that table, 10k is alot, but for how much technology costs nowadays its just an average price, in a few years the price will be cut. I really think it is an amazing new product that Bill Gates has come out w/

It takes time for the new technology to trickle down. For Example, those fingerprint scanner usually bee seen in corporations or CIA buildings lol. But now some of the new laptops have it where you can use it to your liking

Same goes for the surface. Maybe in 5 years, consumers can buy this table for a much lower price.
