Re: MS should do an Apple

What, you mean like the Newton and the Pippin…? Nah, don't remember those at all…

They both shipped, so I don't see how that refutes the OP's argument.

I don't agree with the OP - I prefer companies announce in-development products, regardless of whether they see the light of day, because R&D is interesting, and because I worked on some things at IBM that ended up in that Ark-of-the-Covenant warehouse so I sympathize with the creators of stillborn development lines. But I think the claim that Apple tends to ship the stuff it announces more or less stands, even if that stuff sometimes falls flat.
