Microsoft are going to make a tablet? About fucking time. I want to take notes on it with a stylus, not wave my fingers over the screen going 'oooo, I can make pictures big'. I want to be able stuff a USB stick in the side of it and put directories of data on it.

You have been able to a get a stylus-oriented Windows tablet computer with USB ports for ten years.

Bring on the rivals indeed.

If it's like desktop anti-virus, it will have its own vulnerabilities, take up more resources than I'd like, cause buggy behaviour or incompatibilities with other apps, and feed me false positives too often.

I don't need that on my phone. Since the only real malware we've seen for the iphone involves jailbreaking and then not properly managing your phone, I can do without.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
