    Microsoft erects a giant Surface tablet in the center of London


    Posted: 24 Oct 2013
    Microsoft has a fascination with big screens. The software giant has demonstrated Windows 8 on its 82-inch Perceptive Pixel PC and created giant displays with Kinect built in. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates even uses a giant 80-inch Windows 8 display occasionally. Today, however, Microsoft is going one step further. At one of Londonís biggest tourist attractions, Trafalgar Square, the company has created a 383-inch Surface tablet.

    Hi there
    Since in London the Metro /Subway/Tube never seems to work properly at the weekends I suppose it gives people something to look at instead of trains that don't appear.

    (Mind you there are some decent pubs in that area of London - Ms would have spent the money better by having a small commercial in some of these pubs while offering customers free food and drink !!!).

    Cheers
