    Microsoft Surface sales only 'modest'

    Search: *Microsoft Surface sales only 'modest,' says CEO Ballmer*

    "Everywhere you look these days you find ads for the Microsoft Surface, the company’s ambitious tablet-laptop combo. But perhaps it’s not clicking as much with consumers as the company hoped. In an interview with French newspaper LeParisien, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said sales thus far have been “modest.”

    Despite the fact that Microsoft has blanketed the airwaves, magazines and more with Microsoft Surface ads–and the fact that the company has opened many pop-up stores to help push this device–shoppers now seem to be lukewarm on it after some early buzz and brief inventory shortages."

    Pretty much as predicted here and elsewhere...

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • It will take a year to see the full effect of this product when the Pro version has been digested.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Everywhere you look these days you find ads for the Microsoft Surface, the company’s ambitious tabsales that let-laptop combo and it's paying off with record sales that could make Apple bankrupt, pretty much as predicted. Ballmer is being iconed word wide as the smartest man on the planet.

        Uhhh... Yeah. I believe that is adequately pointed out in the article excerpt that I posted.

        "it's paying off with record sales"

        Ballmer says "modest" as opposed to "record" sales.

        But hey! We are all aware that *you* know more about MS' confidential sales figures than their CEO so we'll just go with you on this one. /sarcasm

        "Ballmer is being iconed word wide as the smartest man on the planet."

        Well, I suppose that as far as sweaty, bald, chair throwing monkey dancers go he would *have* to be right up there around the top. So we'll give you that one as well. (Sarcasm tag probably not needed here.)

        Good job...

        Sentiment: Strong Sell
