Microsoft Kicks Off CES

The Consumer Electronics Show got into high gear (ahem) yesterday, with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer delivering a fairly low-key keynote showing off some new goodies: the next-gen Surface, dual touch-screen PC-or-notebook-I-dunno-which, the next Kinect, and a version of Windows to support system-on-a-chip or SoC architectures.

It all sounds interesting, but nothing had the sparkle of an iPad or shininess of Android -- that is, I didn't come away from the news thinking, "I gotta have that."
