      HC,
      Yup. I've been saying it since they cracked Kinect.
      Apple is great chewtoy for those who like gaming it, but it has little or nothing to do with actual wealth creation or accumulation.

      • MSFT has shown a profound ability to destroy their own leading product - Windows. Windows 8 is a disaster of historic proportions. Under pressure again to buy another computer to replace the one that blew up, we again test-drove the Windows 8 machines. Unbelievable. Quickly, it reduces to using Ctrl-alt-del to switch between programs, like a late-80s Windows shell. I mean, that's the only way it works for a long-term Windows user. Without question, MSFT botched Windows 8 so badly that they've decimated their franchise. Chrome machines now are very much on display and moreover since many of these machines are for kids to use in school the Chrome machines are being chosen. It's amazing to me that MSFT could replace the excellent Window7 with the disastrously bad Windows 8. It shows breathtaking incompetence, imho. I'm not saying that MSFT will lose the office space, since they do have 8.1 coming in to alleviate some of the obvious problems slightly, and the office space is locked in. However, a company capable of destroying their absolute landmark product is not one in which I want to own stock.
