The move isn't a surprising one, but Meyers is perhaps a more palatable hosting options than last year's Jimmy Fallon or the Oscar's returning host Jimmy Kimmel. If nothing else this will bring Amy Poehler back to the Globes stage for their recurring "Really?" schtick, but even that notion underlines that these hosting gigs need some new blood. Shouldn't there be some prerequisite other than talk show hosting that makes a qualified host? Globes embrace television and films, but when will the film side be reflected in the host? Do the Globes even need a host?
The Courier user experience presented here is almost the exact opposite of what everyone expects the Apple tablet to be, a kung fu eagle claw to Apple's tiger style. It's complex: Two screens, a mashup of a pen-dominated interface with several types of multitouch finger gestures, and multiple graphically complex themes, modes and applications. (Our favorite UI bit? The hinge doubles as a "pocket" to hold items you want move from one page to another.) Microsoft's tablet heritage is digital ink-oriented, and this interface, while unlike anything we've seen before, clearly draws from that, its work with the Surface touch computer and even the Zune HD.
