    I may be one of the few who actually prefers the new iOS7 on my state of the art IPhone 5 & iPad 4 with Retina Display

    But, this Windows 8 is pure, useless horseshit.... I see absolutely no benefit or improvement in this from Windows 7. What a pain in the ass

    I'm seriously considering taking back my state of the art CybertronPC-Minotaur Maximus that I purchased last week, and getting a Mac

    after an aggressive ad campaign going toe to toe with ipad mini, MS is sitting on $900,000,000 worth of Surfaces it can't sell

    "We built a few more devices than we could sell," said Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. "We're not selling as many Windows devices as we want to"

    The feel & functionality of the Surface is better than the iPad (in my opinion) ...But the Operating System just destroys all the good things it has going for it

    I heard the keypad isn't responsive and that you really have to tap the keys to get them to register

    They need to give them to elementary school kids in poor areas. Entire schools. Entire school districts.

    Set up a charity and put lipstick on this nasty ass pig....
