Op Ed

The PA Report - Without iOS and Android support at launch, Microsoft’s Smartglass is as good as dead. Thanks nin.
On Friday, when the feature goes live, only Surface owners will be sure to have access to SmartGlass in the way it was intended, limiting the feature to a tiny amount of possible users. It’s not interesting enough to be a selling point for the new tablets, and by trying to keep the initiative locked into its own devices Microsoft is ensuring a lack of developer support. There may be gamers who own a 360, Kinect, Dance Central 3, and a Surface tablet, but not many of them.

This is kind of dumb, though. Of course they're using Smartglass just for their tablets. May it kill the technology? Yeah. But they only really care about it as a way to move their stuff. The 360 moves well enough on its own. It's Windows tablets that this was designed to move.

The other option would be to do what Google does and launch something on multiple devices then pull it from some.
