    - balmer doesnt make top 50% of popular ceos  (times 8 articles)

    - surface falls short ( x 100 articles)

     

    STOP trying to be APPLE.

    The whole problem with the surface is price  (and perhaps availability)

    Have I seen one - up here in canada? nope. Not at Staples.

    If i DID see one - im sure it would be 899 - or 699 for the nutuered RT (really terrible) edition

     

    STOP BEING GREEDY - OWN THE MARKET like you did with xbox - selling console at cost

     

    A good android tablet - iconia say - is 299 in canada

    Another good MINI tablet (8") in canada is Polaroid android ( 99 friggin dollars)

     

    do you think i am going to buy a $900 ms tablet??????  have you (again ) lost your mind

     

    You need to BUY polaroid and put windows on there thing - then BUY acer and make the iconia windows 8 - full windows 8

     

    keeping pricing the same.

     

    THEN we will see if windows will really LOSE in the tablet market place

    (but without an apple obsessed greedy saleguy at your helm - not gonna happen)

    ps - charge 1000 dollars later for the OS - but you have to get people buying and using it first - for free - for cheap - for a LONG friggin time

    the cap'ins name was balmer
    thought he was arnold palmer
    he golfed and golfed that he might stop
    the constant ringing 'larm bells

    he tried to make the zune
    beat apple and itunes
    but it got scoffed at as a stupid move
    just BING it if youre con-fused

    Friggin in the riggin
    balmer is the reason
    friggin in the riggin
    so now whos left we can sue

    He tried to charge a levy
    on android - googles heavy
    cause the patents said we'll have your head
    even if we did not any

    If gates were here today
    and was given his own way
    he'd undercut this inflated glut
    we can all hope for that someday


    Friggin in the riggin
    balmer is the reason
    friggin in the riggin
    so now whos left we can sue

    The biggest mistake was allowing apple to say: "tablets are expensive" and going along with it.

    NEW CAMPAIGN: Tablets are cheap - throw away - gadgets

    You need to go to grocery stores - and airlines and other high traffic/end stores and get them to under write - your already - sell below cost - model.  PS we all know this wont be the case as you  just WONT CHARGE FOR WINDOWS = not that expensive.  

    If Polaroid can sell an 8 inch android tablet for 99 dollars at canadian tire - then if it was sold at cost - it would be 50 dollars. if it was under written by canadiantire - to give to their customers - it would cost 30 dollars.  for any purchase over 200 dollars - canadiantire could give away to EVERY customer - a CUSTOMIZED and branded tablet (surface) - an embedded store website / specials / flyer - that lights up - and updates DAILY.  Canadiantire start screen is locked - but after 5min - you can use the rest of the machine (hey - you got it for free remember?)

    Maybe this is what you could do with Really Terrible version

    White label - co-sponsorship idea aside -  for the rest of us - prices above - full windows.

    oh ya - it's balmer... 

     

    PRICES =  300 dollars for full tablet and 100 dollars for 8" tablet.

     ..full windows 8 XPerience  (RT for sponors=free tablet)

    Winning!

    There must be a hidden message...somewhere. Maybe it's subliminal. Scared

    ..the only thing subliminal about a 900 dollar tablet- with no 2 million apps is....

    .... the idea that someone would purchase it.

     

    Awww BOOM!

    I think it has something to do with the Sex Pistols putting out annoying musical tracks.

    Personally jamie you aren't taking this far enough. I'd like to see tablets that give you money, that is you go to the store, and buy a few tablets and they hand you a check.

    someday they will - the value of the tablet will be eclipsed by the offerings within it.  the companies will underwrite them - they will become the new flyers - but you dont print them over and over (saving company money) ,,and consumers accept them on that premise (hopefully)

     

    This is why supporting the idea that tablets are EXPENSIVE EXCLUSIVE devices is a no-win

    and why trying to sell what i want - windows on a tablet - wont work at your current price points.

    i really am not insane - but when i get excited about something it can come off that way

    i still love ms ... but MMMMAAAAANNNN...how long must i wait for something i consider consumer side NON-hostile.... 

    like polaroid android - 99 dollars

    how about this idea...

     

    currently you go to a book store and buy a book. lets assume that book (printed with cover and colour) costs 5 dollars of the 40 dollars price of the book.

    So now lets assume - that using LED / foldable LCD / and a bunch of other OCD - ICA names (fake) that we can make a disposable tablet - within ....that costs 5 dollars - within 5 years.

    so now every book in a bookstore (today) is a tablet in itself.

    so tell me again why i should pay a grand for windows bloody tablet!!  lol

    The trick is to get someone else to buy it for you. Some people don't like Apple, others don't like Google. But nobody knows the trouble I've seen, nobody knows my sorrow...
