Re: Great move for the Surface Pro lineup
This arrangement lifts the Microsoft tablet into better corporate visibility so it can counter IBM/Apple's efforts.

I'll bet the upcoming Pro 4 will be part of all of this. Probably have a MSPencil for it too.

Re: Great move for the Surface Pro lineup
Yeah, there's all kinds of makeup ---uhhh--- interactions going on here.

HP and Dell may not care where they actually get the tablets, since thier own brands are not buring up the house.

But they get the service on-going revenue out of this, which may be the reason they are in tablets n the first place.

Redmond binds them closer to itself, and they play to their strengths.

Win-win-win.

Re: Apple accouncements
Oh yes, the internet became disruptive.

But, it grew into that. It did not just appear fully formed. What users wanted from it framed how it evolved.

Re: Apple accouncements
Yeah, that could be one reason.

I am tempted here to start screaming "Words have meanings!", but it won't help.

Innovation has had its meaning watered down so much, the PR folk don't know when to use it correctly any more.

Disrupt has an edge to it, a connotation of action with effect, that may appeal to those trying to get your attention.

Re: Apple accouncements
But, you see how it is truly disruptive.

When someone says their app is disruptive, i look at their use of that word with a jaundiced eye.

Re: Apple accouncements
Most inappropriately used, and seemingly one everyone thinks is a requisite.

It seems to be seen as an indicative-of-importance word, rather than one that admits something will cause problem sin a situation. Use of it implies a good solution for the disruption will be required.

Re: Apple accouncements
My candidate word for now would be "disruptive".

It sets off the baloney detector bigtime.

Re: Apple accouncements
Yeah, I remember that one. Still funny to this day.

I was just overdosed on "amazing" and "incredible" being used every two seconds.

Something unplanned and unscripted would have been great. Maybe someone in the audience yelling at Eddy Coe "Where's the freaking content for the Apple TV?"
