So Microsoft finally comes out with a new and innovative piece of hardware and then decides not to sell it? I was so excited about the Courier, but now my heart is broken, and Microsoft just got much less cool overnight.

That is why Apple is successful, and others not when it comes to innovative products. Apple knows how to execute and make their ideas come to life. Others, like Microsoft, well, they just have the ideas. Just like you or me, I'm sure a lot of people reading MaxPC have all these great ideas in our heads - but sadly, they'll just end up stuck in our heads.

is good at is convincing the gullable masses that a piece of shit is the holy grail of geek gadgetry. Seriously iPad? Microsoft has lied about scrapped projects before (ie project pink). I think MS scrapped Courier right now is because they think that what's the point in making a creation tablet when they could have made a piece of crap like the iPad?

If Microsoft is working on a Tablet, please make an XBOX360 tablet. One that has a browser.

that is upsetting but like will said, 'no need for another underpowered win7 tablet' good point will, but still sadening.

That was about the HP Slate, which was also cancelled today. The Slate looked lousy, but the Courier was actually pretty awesome looking. Kind of a bummer, I think.

I cried one sad, sad tear when I read this.
