Surface covers and sweat.
Sorry to disappoint, this post isn't about Ballmer.
So, I have sweaty hands, at times excessively so. (And no, it's not because I find the act of moving my fingers around a keyboard to be strenuous.) I'm rather interested in the Type / Power Covers for the second-gen, though I may end up holding out for better battery life next year or an ultrabook. One thing I don't believe I've seen in any reviews of first-gen Surfaces is how the covers hold up to sweat. They are fabric, they have had QA issues in past with tearing. What's going to happen? Will they become like a soggy piece of cardboard (which would be unworkable, of course), or has Microsoft thought this one through?
