Acer (ASIYF.PK) CEO J.T. Wang is warning Microsoft (MSFT) to "think twice" about launching Surface, predicting the tablets will "create a huge negative impact for the [PC] ecosystem." Microsoft has already warned about a potential OEM backlash in its 10-K, and its concerns are likely a reason why Surface will initially be sold only in Microsoft's online and retail stores. Fears of channel conflict might also affect Microsoft's pricing.

    Is anyone else having problems with SA website intermittently? My browser keeps freezing and timing out on just SA, other sites work fine...


    On this comment; I think it's a little late to ask MSFT not to release the surface. Besides any negative impact has already been done with the iPad growing. Basic computer users only need a tablet, adapt or get out of the business Acer.
