    So Fox News is basically pieced together by searching the internet for stories?

    Would explain a lot...

    They can get all the technology they want, but if they still do news like retards, for retards, what's the point?

    Ergonomics seem terrible. Guy in the red tie in the pic is looking down at a 16-18"-ish sized square at the bottom of the screen. It's going to knacker your arms, neck and back stretching and twisting to use one of those things for 8 hours a day.

    Although it is Fox, so I'm guessing it'll mostly be used to watch YouTube videos.

    Not wanting to agitate the company web filters, do they mention screen res in the video?

    What's the point of having a touchscreen so large you can't easily reach the top?

    Combine that with the fact that you can't see the whole screen without moving you're head and I think it's pretty obvious that most of these journalists are going to start suffering from neck and shoulder pain.

    Article makes it sound like MS made these, or had any involvement in them.

    In reality they probably just choose windows 8 because it has a good multitouch API.
    throw new ArgumentException (String, String, Exception)

    They are actually made by microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/office/perc...s/default.aspx
    However I don't think microsoft ever intended them to be used this way, they're mainly marketed as a presentation device/whiteboard replacement.

    Resolution is just standard 1080p.

    Microsoft has been working on this kind of stuff for a while (remember seeing it in lectures) at the time it was called Surface

    If they actually searched the net for stories they might actually be able to produce a more truthful and interesting broadcast, instead of just reading out what is handed to them from the government.

    Argh my eyes hurt already!

    We had a few of these at work up on the wall. Worked reasonably well for their purpose (displaying information at a distance) but I would hate trying to use one that close, the DPI was horrendous.

    These are brilliant for anyone that uses CAD. Aircraft drafts men/woman use them in some places. A digital drawing board..

    Fox News can now target people faster and more efficiently with propaganda. Good for us
