It amazes me that Microsoft truly thought they could go head to head with Apple's iPad, especially when everybody else who has tried has failed miserably. Is it an ego, complete ignorance, or simply being a glutton for punishment?
Oh, hang on guys... I, I think I see what's going on here. The young man is confused. See... he thought the Apple was an Apple iPhone. Ha! Get it? Apple! Ha! I can see how easy it is to get the two confused.
I think you have that backwards. Unfortunately, USA invokes a negative connotation for many in the world (think George Bush and 'Merica, Wall Street greed and corruption, Arrogance, Drones, Bullies, Mansanto, and Imperialism).
