NEWS: Surface 2 Launches… into a New Era

We keep talking about how Microsoft is entering a New Era.  This is usually in the context of our shift to a company focusing on devices & services.  But apparently this applies to Microsoft in more than one way.

Here’s something that I never thought I’d see:


That’s Microsoft Corporate VP of Windows Devices, Panos Panay, hugging ZDnet blogger & Microsoft reporter, Mary Jo Foley, who is mentioned immediately before Panos refers to a funny hypothetical situation involving the media.  (And if you look carefully, you can see Windows expert & all-around-curmudgeon Paul Thurrott to the right, facing her and laughing as she holds Panos’ locked down Surface 2 which contains the Surface product roadmap for the next 3 years)

My how times have changed.

But then again, there’s been other things announced recently that I only thought would happen when pigs flew.  In the meantime, check out a rather humorous & historic moment at 44:50 in the Surface 2 On-Demand Launch video below.
