I'd be happy with an Apple takeover of RIM, if Apple would update my Playbook software, which RIM stopped supporting. Well on another thought, no way as it would be so negative for my Apple stock price.
Apple always gets mentioned in these Foxconn situations because Apple is so high profile.
For example Dell or even Microsoft would not bring so much attention.
Anyway this is why I don't knowingly eat any food from China.
Avoiding China food is becoming much more difficult, as they play games with labeling and process our raw foods (like Alaskan salmon), then ship them back under a label of a company here.
Yes the surface is not popular in the tablet arena because of poor tablet software.
The same reason my BB Playbook has failed. The BB Playbook is very good hardware, but it's OS and limited good Apps killed it. I'll have to kill mine and move on to an iPad Mini.
The Surface is an OK mini laptop, but the Netbook market was killed by the iPad. So I'll also be killing my Netbook, when I get that iPad Mini.
This Microsoft ad knocking Apple's iOS iDevices,
illustrates again that MS just doesn't understand what users do with iDevices.
Too bad MS, but you'll survive by creating Office updates for business,
who now are wondering if they need all your updates anyway.
Yes I agree it's now a generic term and these big guys should just agree on some compromise. But with lawyers involved, they will drag it on, spending money they made from us. Time these big companies behaved like adults occasionally!
