Re: MS Surface pro FAIL
Yawn. Here goes....
Mac UI -> Windows UI - so Windows 8 is a copy of Mac? Wow, that's a different take. But don't worry, they all ripped of the WIMP approach from Xerox. FAIL
ARM -> ARM - no, MS buy it in like everyone else, either from a licensee or as a license to produce themselves. FAIL
Make hardware -> make hardware - Xbox, mice etc have been pretty good products, not to mention profitable and MS foing hardware is nothing new. FAIL
iPod -> Zune - I'll give you that one ;-)
iPad -> Surface - like all the Android tablets too. FAIL
App Store -> Microsoft Store - No different to Google. Hell, there have been other app stores on the Windows platform for years - Steam and Intel's spring to mind. FAIL
iPhone -> Win Pho 7/8 - it might be rubbish, but Windows Phone (Pocket PC 2002) goes back further than the iPhone (2007), so.... FAIL
Go after the high end -> Go after the high end - MS have always covered all markets - different offerings for XBox, Windows editions (before 8). And why, pray, is this a problem? FAIL
Apple retail stores -> Microsoft Retail Stores
etc. - Another one I'll give you - can't really see the point.
Microsoft also copy Google, Sony and a plethora of others too, the copying is irrefutable. - And they do likewise. GMail copies hotmail, for example. Android copies iOS in many ways (and vice versa). That's the cost of competing. FAIL
Nice try, no cigar.
