No, it shows that market performance of immersive IE on tablets is bad. I own a Surface RT, but I use desktop IE 99% of the time. The 1% of the time that I use immersive IE is when another Metro app launches it.
Windows->X -> Just about every system option you need.
That menu is nice but hidden. It's funny how DOSy W8 is.
Keyboard shortcuts are a big deal now, hidden commands and functions everywhere - like the start screen that shows absolutely no indication that it is actually searchable, yet it is. "All Programs" button is hidden and needs to be conjured up on a pane, that is hidden too.. same logic of flow in the full screen chromeless apps. It's way worse than the much-panned right-click menu.
No visual indication, - you need to know! Just like you needed to know DOS commands.
No, it speaks immensely for the inability to view more than one web page at a time using immersive IE. If it allowed viewing multiple tabs and 50-50 split, I'd use it more often. This is an inability of immersive IE, not the Metro paradigm.
It's actually a context menu. You can right click on the start screen thumbnail to invoke it. Are you going to b!tch and moan about context menus in Windows 7 being "hidden" as well?
There is no sign that this menu exists, and Microsoft doesn't make any effort to make it known to the users.
Metro hobbled the central-hub element completely, and the only effective remedy is hidden without any hint. Who would think that you need to right click on the start screen thumbnail to invoke something of such significant importance?
If you right-clicked on the start button in previous versions, nothing even remotely similar came up.
One small detail: Foxconn makes devices for everybody. Such a massive drop in sales could be attributed to decreasing demand for iDevices ... or the total collapse of the PC market.
But global PC shipments were down 14%. That means whatever portion of their sales from iOS devices, which presumably constitutes less than 100% of FoxConn's total, had to have dropped even more than 19%. It would actually look better for Apple if 100% of FoxConn's business came from Apple.
@wastingtimewithforums: And after those Apple products, there are about 85+ Windows PCs in the best seller list.
The Windows PC market could go gangbusters, but Apple would still be on top because they offer only a handful of models.
