MS has been loosing 'Search' billions $ every year. Has MS giving it up yet?

So we'll expect they will be around for years.

Re: Devices
I've heard the Surface Pro 4 could have a larger and thinner display, but so far no confirmation on that. It'll be interesting to see how it competes against both the MacBook and the new iPad Pro.

Re: Devices
I feel that the majority of Android (mobile) users are also Windows users (desktop). If Android users require a platform switch then, with Microsoft's current effort the selection will be a Windows based mobile platform due to familiarity. If Microsoft was not conducting its current effort -- the only choice would have been iOS.

Another case that is similar would be if the Surface manages to replace the majority of laptops in the market, the user will try to switch platforms and create an environment that is unified.

Re: Devices
Will Surface Pro 4 be lighter and more powerful? How it will perform in the market compared to the new MacBook? The current Surface is still too think and heavy, I must say. Anyway I will stick to Apple for quite sometime since I am already immensed too much in it!

I find it really interesting Microsoft continues to push foreward in devices. It makes a lot of sense to me, yet I wonder – how successful has this been for them? It's almost like a losing proposition for them, yet the company knows at this point devices a la the Apple model simply works.
