Cheap good quality crap sells better than expensive low quality crap. Wow.

Apple still does well too with expensive high quality crap.

What was that word- fragmentation? Looks like MS has that to worry about, more than Android.

And landfill- another word that fits their disposable unloved slabs better than the competition.

Re: Just an idea

Right and wrong.

The future doesn't have Microsoft in it

If it did,it wouldn't be the future- just a bad and more expensive version of the past. .
