Bill Gates Hints at the Return of Microsoft Bob
Yep kinda like this story.
MicrosoftMicrosoft keeps praising its new Surface tablets even though they’re not yet available, but the company claims that the success they’re recording so far is amazing.
In fact, the Surface 2 and the Surface Pro 2 are selling “like veritable hotcakes,” Microsoft said and yes, the company really used these words.
“Bearing in mind the limited availability, you may want to pre-order now to ensure you get the products you want when they become available on Oct. 22,” it added.
And I also noticed that Microsoft picks bad dates to being selling their Surface. I mean if Apple introduces new revisions of iPad this October, it will inevitably eclipse the Surface just like last year. Everyone in the industry will talk about Apple. I don't know how Apple achieves this but they can sell huge quantities no matter what product they throw out to consumers.
If Microsoft comes out with something revolutionary, then they have a chance. But they are just following the footsteps of everyone else. If I hear them say that their gonna release watches, glasses and mini Surfaces, then its a big facepalm. Geez.

First, a mea culpa. I wrote a story or two last year about Surface selling out. While technically accurate, it belied the catastrophe in the making for the first-generation Surface RT.
And here we go again. "It...looks like pre-order stock of the Surface 2 (64GB) and Surface Pro 2 (256 GB and 512GB) are close to selling out," Microsoft said in its official Surface blog on Wednesday.
well .. this is another blow to Win RT that is already running low in popularity graph and one of the major causes along with the Win 8 letting its revenues slide down with a steady rate
