Microsoft invested a lot in the Surface tablet project and also a lot in Windows 8 and Windows RT. These 3 products have only brought the company problems and bad press, following two more failures in recent years, called Kin and Zune. Will they be able to survive if the Xbox One is also a failure?


In the meantime, the Redmond software giant woke up this morning to a lawsuit from its investors over the Surface performance. Microsoft has been slashing prices lately, trying to sell the last batch of Surface RT and Surface Pro units. The problem is that MS is a public company and they have their investors to answer to.

Those investors filed a suit against the company, accusing them of engaging in false statements regarding Surface sales. The problem here is proving when Microsoft realized that the Surface RT was beyond saving and had to cut its price. And still they press on with the next gen Surface… Will this be the death of Microsoft?

    Hmmm. I have always liked MS but have watched them grow into an arrogant money crazed company over recent years to the point that they are almost unrecognizable. Their demise will go the way of a company I absolutely detest and who’s rotten apple persona they seem to be striving to emulate. I for one wrote many pieces requesting an Xbox handheld when they set sail on the doomed Zune voyage. Nobody wanted an mp3 players and everyone wanted a mobile Xbox. Their reply was that Sony was struggling and losing money with its PSP and that Nintendo had the market sewn up -totally not true as Nintendo’s audience has always been kids. Since Microsoft thinks its below them to transact in biscuits – sub $250.00 tablets, though clearly that’s the price point of the masses in a struggling world economy then we will live to lament their demise in the ash heap of those who refuse to address reality but want to operate by a private reality.
