re: Best Tech Predictions Of 2012
Yes, what in the world is Tim Bajarin talking about. Not only are consumers happy to be rid of Microsoft, the OEMs would be foolish to jump back on to the MS wagon. If Win 8 takes over, that means HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc will have the same business model of chasing each other to the bottom in a non-differentiated, little value add tablet/smartphone market (see PCs for another example). I guess maybe they think it is better to live with Microsoft's table scraps than continue getting pummeled by Apple. I don't think Android or iOS for the tablet and Windows for the PC is illogical. Who cares about the OS? Everything runs in a browser anyway except for the applications (Office) that MS has kept on the client side to maintain Windows relevance.
