This is becoming more like a soap opera or government scandal. Consumer Reports smacks Microsoft’s Surface line of notebooks as not being worthy of a recommendation. Microsoft announces their own data which says the opposite. A linked Microsoft memo says Consumer Reports is correct. Wil Gomez:
For much of the past two years members of the technorati elite politburo have busted Apple’s chops over the lack of innovation in the Mac line, and often point to Microsoft’s Surface as to where the industry and innovation are headed. Uh huh. By Microsoft’s own admission, Surface notebook and desktop sales have been going down for about a year. Customers unhappy with Surface devices spread the word. Consumer Reports reliability scores simply echo the marketplace.
