Evening Tech Bits

Tablets are just way more convenient than a laptop and specifically a desktop. Desktop pcs are only for people who want the monster size graphics card (pc enthusiast), and most laptops don't have a good touch screen. The best thing MS can do is push their business software as much as possible. Build its office suite and make it really easy to sync those apps with all devices (phone, tablet, laptop). That's really the only way they can catch up to Apple and Google. Otherwise, all consumers will eventually be using iOS or Android. Why buy a pc when you have an iPhone, iPad, or Android device? There's just no reason unless you need it for something those platforms don't offer. In this case, business software. So yes, in the end, it's all about the software, not the hardware.
