Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer on CNBC’s Squawk Box:
I don’t think anyone has done a product that I see customers wanting.
Is it any wonder than Microsoft’s stock has flat-lined for the past 10 years while Apple has surpassed the Windows maker in every financial category?
Apple sold over 100-million iPads in less than three years. Microsoft? Zero, until the Surface.
Windows 8 is really all about enabling new, creative, imaginative devices. PC Notebooks, PC desktops, PC laptops and now PC tablets as well, that you can touch and interact with and that are alive with information in a way, that frankly, no other device is available on the market today.
Translation: ‘I’ve got a bridge to sell you.’
