    I'm not quite sure what robot's on about either. It's always a guessing game when it comes to deciphering what he means.

    "The OEMs need to learn that whether itís with Windows, Android, Linux, or some other future platform, the only way to win peopleís hearts and minds is through good design and execution of products and marketing. Simply packing the most numbers possible into a generic plastic case, and pricing it as low as you can is not a solid marketing strategy. Apple changed the game, and average consumers no longer care, and donít want to learn what terms like quad-core, GPU, multi-touch, IPS, OLED, etc. mean."
    Whats really going to make or break the PC is how well-received Blizzard's new nextgen MMORPG codenamed Titan is, as games like that tend to drive new hardware sales. WoW has really been showing its age, and there needs to be a new flagship product that pushes PC Gaming.

    There is also Everquest Next, which is also in the pipeline for a release at the end of the year. Its also supposed to be its own take on Sandbox MMO's and something completely different from what has been seen before. Time will tell.
