MS seems nervous about all the press they're getting about the Xbox being a NSA spy machine for your living room. I'm thinking presales are horrible to say the least and WIN 8 is not getting traction at all in fact people or simply putting off computer purchases. Some where down the road some bad numbers will be coming out. The cloud??? Do you want your corporate info being picked through by the NSA??? Matter of time before someone has hacker field day with all the back doors etc. Maybe even a corporate spy working at the NSA along with possible IRS problems. So many things wrong with the whole cloud thing and connecting everything together.
Check out broadband reports a good sight for what's going on with MSFT and the NSA.
