    Microsoft's Surface sales figures are in, and they're ABSOLUTELY HIDEOUS

    Wrote down more inventory charges than it took in revenue


    By Neil McAllister, 30th July 2013

    Microsoft's shares took a beating following its gloomy fiscal 2013 earnings report earlier this month, in which it wrote down nearly a billion dollars on its unloved Surface RT fondleslabs. But the software giant isn't out of the woods yet, because new details have emerged that have the full Surface picture looking even worse than was previously thought.

    Behold... "the gayest commercial in television history"... I find it hard to believe it's all just a coincidence

    horrible commercial for Microsoft, mac has the young trendy people and they should just let them have it. microsoft needs to continue to aim at corporate and professional culture, which they dominate.

    Microsoft hates the fact they were asleep at the wheel for the smart phone/tablet revolution

    They had no idea it was coming

    This is what they thought would last forever
