 No offense, but you're on crack. And I'd love to see you say that Angela Ahrendts in person.
 Well, considering that a Clash: London Calling tee once led to quite a fun -- if short -- relationship of types for me, I won't speak with disdain about band t-shirts. :)
 Eh.  Microsoft's problem in the devices arena is pretty much that they were so late into the game.  It almost doesn't matter whether it's a good platform or not at this point.  They entered an arena that was already established.  The only way to be successful doing that is to come out with something revolutionary (a la Apple entering the phone arena with the iPhone).  Microsoft's never going to do that, and thus the devices are never going to be a big part of their...

 HA!  It really has been a while. :)  I;m sure.  Heh.
