"Is it fair to say we're going to do more hardware? Obviously we are...," says Steve Ballmer, making clear Microsoft Surface (MSFT) isn't a one-off product for the software giant. PC OEMs, some of whom are already upset over Surface, might not be happy to hear that, but it's not as if Google, their main alternative, is acting any differently. Ballmer has already hinted at a stronger hardware push by Microsoft, which now sees Apple as its biggest enemy. (Surface RT reviews) (Windows 8 reviews)
