re: Microsoft Earnings Show Windows 8 Pre-Sales Strong
This pre-sales figure is a useless metric. It's all based on OEM orders. They are making a big push in the hope that Windows 8 will help bolster their flagging PC sales and help give some new devices a boost. Most people are in the Wait & See mode when it comes to Windows 8. Most of us remember Millenium and Vista all too well. I hope it's a success and changes the face of computing, but I'll hold off on adoption until I see it in action for awhile.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
