Re: Please, no more "posts" added to "post, post PC"
If only it was fasionable to blame obama for anything.  BTW, The desktop is long from dead. What will you build that next excel sheet on, a tablet?  I didn't think so.

Oh, absolutely, turning Microsoft isn't going to happen quickly or easily, but there are signs that Nadella is on the right track - Azure's success, deal with Salesforce.com.

Re: Please, no more "posts" added to "post, post PC"
Microsoft is an organization and I do believe Nadella was at MS the whole time the "post-PC" era erupted right under Microsoft's nose.  Nadella is the head of this same organization or was the entire organization replaced with Ballmer?  Nadella's  "post post PC' statement is an effort to reset the clock to figuratively get MS back in the game. I like Nadella as he is doing things differently and better but it's like trying to turn the world's largest oil tanker around.  It takes time and lots of effort.

Seriously? First, blaming Nadella for Microsoft's past missteps is like blaming Obama for Iraq. Fashionable, but flawed logic. Second, Gartner will declare PCs are over when companies that make their money on the PC ecosystem tell them to.

Re: Real-time translation of spoken conversation
Yes, we've all been disappointed before, and probably will be this time, too. But considering the source of the claim, I allowed myself a little "gosh" and even a little  "wow".
