My oh my . . .  THE SPIN:   http://www.neowin.net/news/apple-reportedly-plans-to-take-on-surface-pro-3-with-a-129-inch-ipad
 Even the Apple ads that poked fun at Microsoft have been charming, stylish, fun, memorable.  Apple just *gets* it.
  The entire platform is pointless. It's completely redundant. Apple and Google already cover all ends of the market. Windows Phone brings nothing new to the table. There isn't anything there that is interesting enough to make the platform competitive. 
iPad running Office renders the Surface rather pointless.
Look for Satya Ballmer to do a complete "reset" (read: scrapping/moving to ape the next big thing from competitors, poorly) in about a year's time. Look for a complete "Windows Phone" reset along similar lines in around the same time. Just have to witness a few more quarters of these piles of fail tank some more, and then show's over.   Though MS has been known to hang on to loser products way past their sell-by date.   ZuneForever™.
So iOS actually does = Freedom. XD
Microsoft seems to be under the impression that consumers will care enough about ..... "Cortana"... is it(?).... to then care enough about Windows Phone. There's a reason the platform still has barely any traction after four years on the market, and it isn't because it more than makes up for it in profit and record sales.
Online retailer thinks they can do a genius UI mated to first-rate hardware, connected to a rich ecosystem, virtually overnight (using some forked version of Android.) You know, what Apple has spent most of the past 8 years nailing down to a fine art, and the rest of its existence schooling the rest of the industry on how it's done.    Unfortunately for the industry outside of Cupertino, the sea-change that occurred in June 2007 doesn't leave much room for others to make...
Not EVERY Apple quarter can be an earth-shattering, game-changing record-breaker.    They've had, and continue to have, more than most.    Perspective, guys.
