No... they had ad where PC cannot communicate with cute Japanese "device" (camera? printer?) while Mac was speaking fluent Japanese and had no problem to communicate with device. That was really... truthful.
I don't think Apple lawyers can do them much harm. At worst, MS will change that line to something like "I cannot have two apps on screen together" or something else in that line, and be safe. And maybe get some publicity in the process, not unlike Samsung capitalized well on Apple dragging them to court.
Exactly. There are always cheaper products. That doesn't make them better.
In my everyday dealing with customers - and I do a lot of those since equipment advisory and procurement are part of my role - I've learned that price is among primary interests for number of customers - definitely over 50%, likely over 60%. Persuade them that cheaper device can even do more, and they will be sold.
I guess I was mistaken about the RT vs Pro - one of the problems of the MS product lineup. LOTS of people are going to make the same mistake - and buy RT tablets thinking they will run regular Windows apps.
Yes I agree with that. RT should not have classic desktop at all, and MS should have made Office RT to work under Modern GUI. That being said, since cheap Pro tablets can be purchased for less money than currently available RT tablets (at least here in NZ), while offering comparable weight, battery life, better compatibility and functionality (through desktop mode) and usually more storage, I really cannot justify a reason to purchase RT. At all.
All true. I could never figure out why you wanted to play an action game while playing a movie while ordering flowers on the Internet - all at the exact same time.
You are really splitting hairs here. This is about concept, not this specific single scenario they have mentioned in ad. I've been using this often enough to call it very useful. Having Skype or default messaging app side-open while doing something in main "window". Or SkyDrive portal. Or calendar. Or many other "ors". It is more convenient than switching between apps, in most cases at least.
