Works for Apple...and cars....

Personally I prefer when companies clearly differentiate between generations of products, even versions of products. Conversations that go something like this tend to happen when you use one name for multiple generations of electronic hardware: "Oh, you have the first *new* XBOX? You need the second one or newer to be able to run that game." or "The new XBOX OS doesn't work on the first generation of *new* XBOX, it only runs on the 2nd or 3rd generation."

Then again, given Apple's success and some of the recent MS decisions, it isn't all that shocking that they would decide to imitate Apple in this way.

This was my thought. Their iPad was simply the new iPad, not iPad 4, so I think MS is trying to imitate Apple in this regard.
