Don't know where you have been... but AOL hasn't been a part of Time Warner in over 3 years... In 2000, AOL and Time Warner merged under the name AOL Time Warner. The merger was not fruitful and on May 28, 2009, Time Warner announced that it would spin off AOL into a separate public company. The spinoff occurred on December 9, 2009,[11] ending the eight-year relationship between the two companies.

You are obviously not familiar with Burma Shave, its a 1950s thing. There were signs on the road, each sign had a single line, ending with "Burma Shave". It was not supposed to be fine prose. I think they covered it in the pilot episode of Quantum Leap.

if MS has a good dock for this (they dont , at least they haven't announced it) that will turn it into an Ultrabook, maybe with an extra battery built in etc. it could be viable as a platform, however they have announced scant accessories for either machine as far as I know.
