RANDOM THOUGHTS AND MINDLESS CHATTER
The good folks in Redmond just had an event where they unveiled their new Windows 8 tablet, aptly named Surface. It really looks like a good, well thought out product, especially that keyboard!
No word on pricing and it won't be available right away. I think that's a bummer. But it is a step in the right direction. And with Office!

I recently had a very good (for a change) experience with a customer service rep. Earlier this year I purchased a killer Mac software program called TechTools Pro from Micromat, Inc. I just tried to locate the disk and SURPRISE!, I have misplaced it. I know I received it and still have the confirming email with tracking number. Well, because I need to have this valuable program available to me I decided to contact them in Santa Rosa, CA and ask how much for a replacement disk.
Immediately Stephanie Caldwell from the Micromat sales department got in touch with me. All she wanted to know was if they had erred and not shipped my package. I replied that I was certain I had received it but just couldn't locate it here in my home office. She promptly stated that they would mail a replacement out right way via first class mail! All at no charge!! Really??
In my book that deserves a good word. They certainly didn't have to do that as it was definately not their fault. And now I am an even more loyal Micromat customer.
I'm not sure what took them so long but the new Mercedes implementation of iPhone integration looks sweet! I kinda thought BMW might be first though. Take a read here courtesy of The Unofficial Apple Weblog.....New Mercedes-Benz car line to embrace iPhone 4S, Siri
