    My guess would be you haven't used a surface yet. :-)

  • "I certainly expect [Microsoft's] org chart to look a lot different six months from now," says former Microsoft exec Brad Silverberg, who (like many others) views Steven Sinofsky's departure as the first step in a big push to get Microsoft's (MSFT) fiefdoms to finally play nice with each other. But some still think ousting Sinofsky was short-sighted. Farhad Manjoo: "So [Sinofsky] was a jerk. So what? ... He was the firm’s most thoughtful executive, certainly more perceptive about technology than Ballmer." [View news story]
    Somebody like Mark Zuckerberg??? Yea Facebook stocks are killing it :-)
    Look age has nothing to do with it. I agree a Ballmer departure would be good but if Kevin Turner replaced him things will get worse. Turner is a tyrant double what Sinifsky ever thought to be. Microsoft needs a forward thinking innovative mind regardless of age.

    Why younger talent? Wouldn't that be age discrimination?

  • The Next CEO Of Microsoft Suddenly No Longer Works At Microsoft [View article]
    I think you're spot on. Thus the anger that can be detected in Ballmer.

  • Quick take on Office Mobile: Microsoft (MSFT) may have decided any revenue produced by iOS/Android downloads, which would have to be priced around $10-$15/app to be competitive, would be pocket change compared with the billions generated by PC Office sales. Hence Microsoft decides its top priority is to support its Office subscription push - a push that will get stronger with Office 2013. But the strategy risks hurting Microsoft's iPad presence at a time when the iPad is making huge corporate inroads[View news story]
    The use of the word huge is a bit misleading here. Companies are toying with the idea would be more accurate.

  • Microsoft: In The Forefront Of The PC Revolution Once Again [View article]
    Finally someone gets it. Only issue is I'm betting you already missed the opportunity to buy at the bottom. Indicators are that the move up has begun so better jump on now.

  • Windows 8: The Brave And The Bold [View article]
    That's fine Windows 7 is a great is. W8 can do all that W7 does but much faster.

  • The Upcoming Microsoft Train Wreck [View article]
    That would have helped your story very much. Thing is Surface RT has a very good opportunity to be the best consumer tablet out there. Surface Pro will be able to run those legacy apps as well as do the things RT does. I hardly see it as a train wreck for the company. I just hop Surface Pro is offered with Office preinstalled. The sign is out on Apple. They've gone from $705 to bow $600. I'm not predicting how low it will ho and the iPad mini may see a slight tick up but I'd be selling Apple mow if it were me.

  • Could Broken Windows Break A Company? [View article]
    Maybe opposite but is to accomplish the same goal of having the same touch and feel across all devices.

    Put the crack pipe down. Surface truly bridges the gap between consumer entertainment device and enterprise capable work device. Also what about XBOX, Kinect, SQL, Windows Server, SystemCenter, Exchange, Dynamics and and the plethora of other products they produce. BTW WP8 is the best phone out there. MSFT has come back to life and Office 13 is still to come. Better buy MSFT or be prepared to weap latter.

    Zune HD suffered from terrible marketing. Have you ever used one? I still use mine in my car and it beats iPod in every way.

    Office 10 works seamless with Win8 but Office 13 will be even better when it realeses early next year.

    Everybody remembers Vista but what's that got to do with anything. Remember how people questioned graphical interface and the mouse. Most all change meets some apprehension. The beauty of the past is it gives an example of what not to repeat. Windows 8 is nothing like Vista. WP8 is years ahead of Android and iPhone with its user friendly , customizable interface. You can burry your head or buy MSFT and thank yourself later. Oh BTW remember when Apple was $18 and Microsoft saved them from bankruptcy. :-)
