    Here's what I'll say in response to that.

    Once upon a time, people carried musical players in addition to mobile phones. Very quickly, those functions got consolidated into the same device.

    Also, Amazon quickly figured out that people usually dont want a Kindle and an iPad or a Kindle and an Android device, they want to read books. So Amazon released the Kindle app for ALL devices.

    Bottom line, if you can use one device for work and play, why have or carry two or more?

    Consolidation is coming soon and the best dockable tablet will win.

    Oh to have Apple's "dropping" stock price. That would be a wonderful problem to have.

    Writing about Ballmer is somewhat like presenting a rorschach image. People just read what they want into your article.

    Once again, it's absolutely not clear what Microsoft's intentions are for the Surface line.

    It's a catch 22.

    Intentionally sell too few and it's irresponsible to shareholders if there is substantial demand.

    Sell too many and OEM's must be sacrificed.

    A tough decision.

    Because it is such a tough decision, it's really not clear what path Microsoft have chosen.

    -- Behind on search, behind on phones, behind on music,etc etc the list goes on to the tune of lost billions.

    Not really facts for dispute in 2013. Even Microsoft admit that.

    Simply not his job to say anything negative about the company's products.

    It wasn't days earlier, it was yesterday. Not sure how the two would be related.

    It's an interesting point.

    So, what is Microsoft's relationship with PC OEM's? Depending on the OEM you get a different answer.

    Acer, ASUS, Dell and Lenovo would probably give you very different answers.

    It's not at all clear what Microsoft's plan is for the Surface line of products. Some OEM's clearly are suspicious and damn near paranoid about the Surface devices.

    If it's clear to you that Microsoft isn't planning to drive partners out of the market, I need to borrow your crystal ball.

    Microsoft is now a devices company as well so it's absolutely relevant.

    Even if 100% true, not his job to confirm it.
