Details of Microsoft Tablet Emerge

Here we go again with this ridiculous tablet thing. Talk about a tempest in a teapot -- rumors and reports are swirling about a product that we predict nobody's going to want, anyway. But if you really want to know what's going on, there's some info here.

Oh, by the way, if we're wrong about our prediction and tablets take off like PCs in the '80s, we'll just do what the analysts do and hope that you forget that we ever said anything about tablets at all (which you probably will).
