With any luck this new venture into tablets will be too late just like windows phones were too late. Six months out from the release and we’ll know. Anything that eats away at the monopoly of microsoft is good.

They really do no have leverage like they do with pc market, so I assume they will just be another competitor in a long line of tablet makers.

Microsoft has to talk things up now its market share is in decline - but it’s always done it anyway - so it’s just normal behaviour.

Read that last night, and had to laugh about such a dedicated s/w company moving into hardware, and Ballmer looks so sincere, not.

This is the piece to relish:

powering about 95% of personal computing device sales, according to Forrester. It says that figure has now shrunk to 30%.

Drat. With a title like “Load of old Bull”, I though you were offering to send us a free carton of beer.

You wish…
