1. I've never seen so many marketing buzzwords In one sentence that tell me absolutely nothing.

2. People actually still use tape to back up data? I guess It goes with all the cave drawings hanging on the wall.

Seriously.. there are much better choices for reliable data storage regardless of size dvd,blu-ray,ssd.

Microsoft has made life harder for itself, Brazier added, by developing its own hardware and selling through its own shopfronts.

"If it's an experiment, it's a very strange one."

By launching its own devices, Microsoft might be taking on Google, he said - but Google doesn't have the sort of ecosystem Microsoft has built over the last 25 years.

"If they really think they're going to shift a lot of products through their own websites and stores ... they're not going to sell very much," commented the Canalys chief.

REALLY....yeah because we all know how Apple Is on the verge of bankruptcy doing just that!

Pixie dust

Pulling numbers out of your ASS, doesn't make It fact I don't care how much fairy dust you sprinkle on It. theres just no way to put a real number to this kind a thing.

If makes you feel better, feel sorry for the poor knob pirate In Hong Kong who still has a hundred thousand copies of Windows Vista he couldn't give away as free drink coasters on e-bay
