After Billy Beer, do you really want a Billy phone? Seriously, that's a terrible product name.

Un, not really. More like half-century.

To...what? Dude, don't us hangin'. ;)
Personally, I don't see using RT as a problem. I fact, I think it's perfect for a mini-tablet. The screen's too small things like word processing or image editing, however Excell and Powerpoint...
> 10 PRINT "BASIC IS OBSOLETE"

So is the Model-T, but it's respected for what it stood for.
I'm currently reading the book, Almost Perfect by Pete Peterson, which goes into this issue in detail.

IMO, anything less than a seat on the Board would be a waste of Alan's time. Being an advisor to a company who's already decided on what they want is like talking to a wall.

The W100 was pretty cool.
This is fine for text-based apps, but graphic apps, like Photoshop, would be bogged down too much.
I have nothing against cloud computing, per se, but I insist on having my data on-site as well. The cloud is a great place for backing up your data, but I wouldn't use it for live data.

LMAO! This is why I love reading your stuff.

More storage with less RAM? I can see that.
For me, the desktop is merely a means to an end. If I can achieve those ends using Metro, that's cool.
> ...when tablet and PC sales interject
Did you mean "intersect"?
> Amazon grew 266 percent, and Amazon surged forward 317 percent.

But haven't you said in the past that Office was their most important product?

Well there's decisive, then there's /decisive/. :)

Harsh, dude. You don't like YM? Fine, but don't go maligning others because they do. And, no, I don,t use YM.
The problem with version #s is that there's no standard. Just 'cause a program has a higher version # than another, doesn't necessarily mean it's that much better.
> Microsoft this week published a list of the nearly 41,000 patents it now owns
I tried this link 3 times on my iPad & it crashed Safari each time.
