Not just a tool for Vegas tourists to flirt with each other, Microsoft's Surface computer is to be installed in some Sheraton Hotels - perhaps for business convention goers and other business execs to flirt with each other ...
Guests will be able to use Microsoft's Surface at select Sheraton establishments in Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. Applications offered include CityTips, which feature 360-degree satellite maps and tools to search for local entertainment; Sounds of Sheraton, enabling guests to create personal music playlists; and Sheraton Snapshots for guests to drool over other Sheraton resorts around the world.
