Scoble, who was doing TabletPC's at NEC has left and joined Microsoft. He's an important part of the blogging community and I hope this ends up changing Microsoft in a good way. Good luck Scoble. I have mixed feelings, but I've shared them with him. I think it's the right think for him though.
It reminds me the quote from David Smith on Frank Boosman's blog about the similarity between people's view of MS and the US.
Since Dave Winer blogged this news already, I assume I can too. ;-)
