To put it more precisely: Microsoft knew tablets would be big someday... but rather than make a new lightweight OS that was adequate to a tablet, they tried to cram clunky old Windows into the new format. The result was those x86 tablet PCs that were huge, ran crazy hot, and had a completely inadequate interface.

Good point. It was also a little surreal to have the SC rule that the mandate was, in effect, a tax, when the official position of the administration -- i.e., the ones pushing the law in the first place -- was that it was NOT a tax.

See here, for just one of many examples:

"The White House argued on Friday that the individual mandate at the heart of Obamacare is a penalty, not a tax, contradicting the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling a day earlier upholding the historic health care law. " --

After the FB/Oculus news, I looked into alternatives and found about this InfinitEye project from France that claims to do 210 degree of horizontal FOV, fully covering the human peripheral vision (while the Rift only does only 90 degrees). I'd pay attention to this one now.
