Here we are in Vegas for the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. Now I’m in a very stressful episode in my life, so for once I am in this town completely sober…as in straight-edged, clean, living pure, high on life, etc etc…. which made it all the more disturbing last night to watch Bill Gates play Welcome to the Jungle with Slash.
Today I was watching the Microsoft squad demo the new “Surface”, which uses “Touch” technology similar to the iPhone and other products.
The demo they keep using is buying a custom graphics snowboard. After you put the graphics on the board, you can spin the board about in the screen using the touch of your finger tips. So what? Now if they could load all the small parts from bicycle drivetrain components into a “Surface” unit and mount it on the bike shop floor, I could very simply save time and make greater sales by having the customers look for the parts.
