    I believe one of them said Apple is going to bring out a MacBook Pro Retina for $699.

    I'm not sure if that's going to happen though, that's how much they charge for a Lightning Cable.

    Nope, I can keep using Windows 7 probably for the next 10 years, but most likely well before that, Balmer will wake up and start to smell the roses and finally understand that desktop users don't like what he's foisted on them. Either that, or Balmer will be kindly asked to become the tea lady, while someone with a slightly better customer focus will take over. If not, they may well become another Nokia.

    Yeah who cares, I've started eating synthetic honey, it's a lot cheaper. I don't see why I should have to pay big money for something bees poop out.

    A very good reason not to buy a Surface PRO it is just something M$ just poops out.

    If MS disappeared tomorrow, it would have little effect (except on the employees, BOD, shareholders and the stock brokers).

    Everyone would continue to use what they already have.
    There would be a lot of "hand wringing" over what to buy next though (Apple or Linux).
    Little effect huh? Maybe you should step back to reality.
