    Even if OEM's don't like this, what are they going to do? They can't go to Apple, and Google are making their own phones and tablets too.

    Personally I think all the excitement around the return of Metro Clippy is great.

    Perhaps a tablet combined with the XBOX? Doens't sound that strange considering Nintendo's Wii U...

    @PeterF: Google SmartGlass. That would basically be a non-announcement, unless you're talking about an actual announcement for a new Xbox/tablet bundle which sounds far fetched to me at this time.

    I hope to God that someone announces that there isn't an announcement if there isn't an announcement

    Are you making an announcement for this? Pronouncement? Denouncement?

    +1 for Metro Clippy

    "MSFT fell 15 points after Monday's announcement."

    OK ok I'm kidding. Really, we're going to announce we're bringing back Firefly.

    I was really hoping it would be about MAX_PATH being extended to 324 characters

    Naw, the holographic Steve Jobs will be great.

    What? Too Soon?

    A Disney animatron, not a holograph... but too soon indeed, risking a morbidity foul...

    - A talking pocket Metro Clippy, really an enhanced USB drive with sound, one end with micro-USB so it works with WP7 too! Dare I say bluetooth enabled? Hands-free? A Clippy-clip for your shirt's pocket protector?

    One thing is certain -- no work can be done until the reveal --

    Who's gonna tell the lead of the TV show 'Castle' that he has to go back up in there and be a halfway serious actor again on a set that's full of styrofoam cheese bricks, space guns and cowboys?

    All this hoo-hah over a service pack for Sharepoint. Honestly, you'd think it was something exciting....

    Mmmm.

    If it was new MS hardware then I think someone would have leaked it by now - unless it's something that won't be available for months.

    It could be someone else's hardware carrying an MS badge, or some software/service thingy.

    Well, I don't want to sit on the fence like an IT analyst, so I'm going to plump for Office for the iPad.
