This kind of thing has a lot of potential.
Ok.... Um...... How do I put this.......... Best accessory idea ever? Yups, that'll do.
Seriously I mean this thing is just cool! I'm not a DJ or anything but the idea is sound (pun intended), very unique, and hopefully usefull!!!!! Now this is thinking outside the box right? Whether you are pro, anti, or indifferent, towards MS you have to be sitting there hoping more devices adopt input ideas like this one.
If Microsoft is going to legitimately compete with Apple in the tablet space, fostering this "OMG-that's-a-killer-accessory!!!" concept will be the ticket. As a music guy, I'm kind of blown away by this thing.
What if they expanded it to include covers for other specific career fields? Adobe Photoshop or generic photo editing covers (a real kick in apples graphic design pants), word/excel covers, even gaming specific covers ie. Dota2, world of Warcraft. Possibilities could be endless if this idea and surface as a whole continues to do well!
Any thoughts about my above comment??
I think that's what MS is considering doing, actually. It looks like they're calling the concept "blades"--as in, this thing is a music-related blade. But theoretically, there could be a blade for anything. It opens up a whole new market for third-party super-peripherals. You're right, why not a blade for graphic designers, or gamers, or accountants, etc.? Really cool approach, IMO.
Really Microsoft ? Is this the Killer App ? So for every specialized Application I use I'd have to carry around a specific "blade" ? Kind of defeats the purpose of having a Touchscreen for the UI controls. LOL.
Super-peripherals to add even more cost to the already faltering device.
just another flimsy mechanical device prone to wear and tear.
ZUNE - " who'd want one ? " lmao
