Let's talk elegance. Really, that's what sells Apple. Apparently Microsoft doesn't get it yet.

Here's Logitech's Ultrathin Keyboard Cover. Count the parts. I'll help. ONE. Try to find the batteries. They are built-in and charge off an ubiquitous microUSB cable.

Now here's Microsoft's Wedge Mobile Keyboard. Count the parts. THREE. Batteries? You better go buy a bunch of AAs and AAAs. Yes. The keyboard and mouse take DIFFERENT types of batteries.

The keyboard stores in the case so you'll have to keep up with your Microsoft Surface and the keyboard in its case. The mouse? I guess you'll have to put that in your pocket with your extra batteries.

Hey, but the keyboard has Charms keys!

I know that Microsoft showed both a Touch Cover and a Type Cover for the Surface but they haven't surfaced yet. (I couldn't resist the pun.)

Incredible how Microsoft just doesn't get it.
