The article is missing the most important part:

"- Sent from my iPad"

I think anyone can play this game....


Lots of people hate Microsoft and want to see them gone and write articles with FUD to try to put fear and doubt into people's minds.
I think it's pretty easy to see this.

The only Windows machine I really use anymore is my HTPC on my TV at home, running Windows 7. I was thinking about giving Windows 8 a whirl though, as it seems like the UI might work out quite well on a TV screen.


Ahh we can fix that for you. www.plexapp.com and a roku or other supported little box. :)

Like every empire before it the once omnipotent Microsoft will meet it's demise with denial.

Shouldn't this be in 'jokes and funny stuff' forum ? :p

MS dominate the desktop market, they are not intimidated by any other company, and no, I'm not a MS fanboi, just a fact ;)


Agreed.. this should be with his conspiracy theory bs

Microsoft aren't exactly setting the tablet scene alight at the moment but their business is far from failing.


But I've heard around here that businesses aren't excited about embracing Win8

Sorry but what out there is going to compete with Microsoft Office? I can totally see businesses doing work on iPad's. No the Businesses that buy iPad's buy them for their employees entertainment and the employees pay for it via monthly instalments taken out of their wage.

Windows 8 is selling well, Windows Phone is growing and not shrinking, Xbox is growing and their enterprise services are growing.

By the way here is a tweet from the Journalist, his article is just a loose opinion with no actual facts to show Microsoft is in trouble.

I think Yahoo has more of a chance of being done than Microsoft. The story about Microsoft might make some web site hits. With the updates with Windows in a few years I am betting Microsoft does the opposite.

Quite frankly he lost credibility when the author wrote:

Microsoft doesn't have a Facebook app for the Surface


Yes, because a tablet with a full blown web browser needs to have a custom native application. There is so much fail in the article I don't know where to begin. Have Microsoft made some missteps? sure, they've wasted at least 6 years but 2012 IMHO marks a long hard journey that will take a lot of hard work by those at Microsoft to make changes necessary to compete in the marketplace. Mark my words, in 1-2 years we'll be having this discussion and the same idiot who wrote the article will be crowing how Windows Phone 8 has 30% of the market, Windows 8 Marketplace has more applications than the AppStore and the new Xbox box is "kick ass".

Btw, Yahoo giving critiques of Microsoft - who the hell uses Yahoo these days? they might as well close up shop, give back the money to shareholders and join the long list of irrelevant companies that no one gives a crap about such as Ask Jeeves.

Lol @ OP.

Every single one of those list items is BS.
