    "Windows RT was a bad mistake."

    The Windows 8 Sales Data Is In, And It's Bad News For Microsoft

    Nicholas Carlson | Nov. 30, 2012, 8:17 AM



    Remember when current CEO Jen was carnival barking about the new

    Windows 8 RT being THE best thing ever for nvidia?

    "Step right up, boys. And Behold the Win RT which will Transform our company."

    Looks like current CEO Jen was wrong.

    Again.

    "Windows RT was a bad mistake by MSFT."

    "Windows 8 tablet sales during that period were "almost nonexistent"

    "Asus CFO David Chang's comment that "demand for Windows 8 is not that good right now."

    "Microsoft cut its order of Surface tablets for the year to two million units, down from four million."


    Looks like Windows RT was a mistake for MSFT -- and a scratch for nvidia.

      "I wonder how Yah$oo's filter works", asked Best, curiously.

      Let's try an experiment, shall we?

      Maybe if we add a few characters here and there, it might screw-up

      the filter from well, filtering, right?

      And folks in this Great Freedom of Speech Country of Ours could read it.

      So let's add a few random $ characters here and there and see what happens.

      Well actually, it's about the 10th attempt, but who's counting.



      The Windows $8 Sales Data Is In, And It's Bad $ News For Micro$soft

      Nichola$s Carl$son | Nov. 30, 2012, 8:$17 AM

      "NP$D res$earch published some bad news for Micro$soft yesterday. Despite releasing an entirely new operating system on October 22 of this year, Windows PC sales $shrank 21 percent between 10/21 and 11/17 vers$us the same period last year.

      Windows 8 tablet sales during that period were "almost non$existent" – just 1 percent of all Windows 8 $sales.

      “It hasn’t made the market any worse, but it hasn’t stimulated things either,” Stephen Bak$er, an analyst at NP$D, told The New York $Times. “It hasn’t provided the impetus to sales everybody hoped for.”

      No kid$ding.

      Yesterday, we reported other bad news: Asu$s CFO Dav$id Cha$ng's comment that "demand for Windows 8 is not that good right now."

      Microsoft cut its order of Sur$face tablets for the year to two million units, down from four million.

      This is a very sca$ry time for Microsoft."

    • Thanks Best!


      For posting the title of that banned news story.

      I've read it, and here are a few of the highlights.


      "Windows RT was a bad mistake by MSFT."

      "Windows 8 tablet sales during that period were "almost nonexistent"

      "Asus CFO David Chang's comment that "demand for Windows 8 is not that good right now."

      "Microsoft cut its order of Surface tablets for the year to two million units, down from four million."


      You're right, Best.

      Windows RT -- what was supposed to be the latest messiah for struggling nvidia --

      sounds like a scratch.

      Thanks again Best, for bringing us the banned news.



    • Hummm.

      It appears that Yahoo's server doesn't like that news story.

      And chopped it out of my message.

      nvidia is no doubt somehow involved in the censorship.

      So be sure to check out that banned story yourself.

      The Windows 8 Sales Data Is In, And It's Bad News For Microsoft

      Nicholas Carlson | Nov. 30, 2012, 8:17 AM


      NPD research published some bad news for Microsoft yesterday.
      Despite releasing an entirely new operating system on October 22 of this year, WindowsPC sales shrank 21 percent between 10/21 and 11/17 versus the same period last year.

      Windows 8 tablet sales during that period were "almost nonexistent" – just 1 percent of all Windows 8 sales.

      “It hasn’t made the market any worse, but it hasn’t stimulated things either,” Stephen Baker, an analyst at NPD, told The New York Times.

      “It hasn’t provided the impetus to sales everybody hoped for.”

      No kidding.

      Yesterday, we reported other bad news: Asus CFO David Chang's comment that "demand for Windows 8 is not that good right now."

      Microsoft cut its order of Surface tablets for the year to two million units, down from four million.

      This is a very scary time for Microsoft.
