Is Microsoft playing catch up? Or simply trying to keep its head above water?
In a recent article, Microsoft is trying to take away attention from MacBook Air users.

I myself am not a MacBook user, but mostly because most (if not all) office environments are around a microsoft ecosystem, but I do recognize that Mac machines are really robust.

The article makes the following statement "At best they may help Microsoft hold on to its existing business"

I have to agree... Microsoft is dominant in the office space, and I do think it should continue it's focus there. I guess the riddle is "how long those it take for a product to pick up some traction?"

The first iteration of the surface came out in 2012, so it'll be two years later this august, and it's still struggling to be in the spot light. Samsung on the other hand didn't take long before it was able to compete toe to toe with Apple. This applies to smarphones as well, since Windows Phone have also had a hard time to be present in eyes of consumers.

So even in the enterprise world, Ipads are the perfered mobile solution.

So what does the community think of Microsoft's recent business strategies?
