Okay. So they saw that someone else was making money with cell phones and tablets. Having no tech of their own, they spend billions to acquire... Palm. Then they spend billions to develop their first generation of "Ipad killer" which has many first generation flaws and shortcomings that everyone in tech knows are inevitable. So the "businessmen" in charge decide after only 3 months to throw in the towel and flush ALL those billions down the crapper because they didn't get a home run the very first swing? And the rest of the PC line has to go down too?

So here we have a computer company that won't make computers.

And people wonder why I have such reservations about private companies being able/willing to launch anything to orbit? I knew that to graduate MBA school, you had to leave your soul behind. But it's looking like you have to lose a big chunk of your brain to get that MBA also! A computer company that doesn't make computers... what are they going to do, sell apples?
