Early reviews for Microsoft’s new Surface tablet have been released this evening, giving us a look at the company’s supposed “saving grace.” According to the pundits who got their hands on it early, things aren’t looking too good for Microsoft.

At C24 we like Kinect from Microsoft. Having highlighted Kinect in retail several times we spotted this concept that takes it out of the store and into a larger public place. The world’s largest show store in a station? Could possibly be a good idea for pop up shops and potential those companies that are making the move from online to physical storefront.
