Re: Win7 or Win8


[re: AEP] [link to this post]
 
Apple, and their fans, are knocking it,


Apple have had almost nothing to say about Surface. When asked Tim Cook admitted he'd not seen or used one, but said ... "we're reading that it's a fairly compromised, confusing product." adding, "I suppose you could design a car that flies and floats, but I don't think it would do all of those things very well. When people look at the iPad versus competitive offerings, I think they'll continue to want an iPad." I suspect he is right.

I agree it doesn't seem to be Apple users who are knocking win8 or surface but windows usres who definately don't like the direction that MS have taken.

Apple isn't worried at all they have sheer fanactical following with people buying their products year after year.

But we have heard all the same rhetoric from MS, wasn't Zune meant to be the iPod killer?

The word "from the horse's mouth" (reference very much intended). And the man hadn't actually seen a Surface.

He's probably unaware that Surface comes with Office, so it's usable in a business environment - unlike the iPad.

I think he's got his fair share of problems right now. Faltering sales, plumetting shares, increasingly serious competition, disastrous court cases, and now the prospect of a jail sentence in absentia for contempt of court. This guy is no Steve Jobs.

Anyone that doesn't think Apple isn't closely looking at it to see if they think MS are infringing any of their patents are deluded.

Perhaps a bottle of rosé instead.

Microsoft are too clever for that; and they have their own portfolio of patents. This is why Apple are worried enough about Surface to start rubbishing it. Here they have to compete in the market, not in the courts.

Did I say they weren't?

Anyone who thinks that it needs office to be useful or already deployed in huge numbers in business environments is displaying a chronic lack of imagination and knowledge whren it comes what actually goes on in a business environment.
