'Makes perfect sense...a new operating system and tablet device, both of which are miserable failures with consumers, fierce competition by superior, better run companies and an idiot CEO whose only success in this world that was not due to his friendship with Bill G. is that he got an 800M on the SAT....of course the stock is going to explode upward...any minute now...yes, any minute....still waiting.........
the stock will go up because fundementals are strong,, and the company is taking a chance and fight for standdization of user interface across all form factors of computing. Nobody is able to pul this otgather, except MSFT. How nice it will be for every one when you and everyone in your family have the same user interfac like WIn 8 from desktops, to latops, to tablets , to smartphoens, and to X-boxes??? I thnk every parent and all on earth will love it. When Bil Gates is on to somthing, he is serious!!!
As for all corporations and governemnts, standardizations and productivity is the key. Now, the messy we get with all thrse different andros and iphones, the more urgent we have to standarze on WIndows!
"When Bil Gates is on to somthing, he is serious!!!"
Yep. He has demonstrated this many times. Let's look at the tenacious character of this "tech giant".
"Computer Center Corporation (CCC), banned four Lakeside students— Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Ric Weiland, and Kent Evans—for the summer after it caught them exploiting bugs in the operating system to obtain free computer time."
Gates quote: "In my case, I went to the garbage cans at the Computer Science Center and fished out listings of their operating system."
You can find many more instances of thievery, corruption, code copying, usury pricing of MS products, etc.
I can see where a man like this would be a hero to shills and charlatans such as yourself.
