Carol Bartz recently showcased what happens to CEOs who don't meet expectations -- and, given Yahoo's board may be fired as well, what can happen if a board acts too slowly. Steve Ballmer has been under fire for some time for underperforming as CEO, but one hit could change him from bozo to star if it is big enough, and Windows 8 is big enough. I'll share my thoughts on Windows 8 and the Intel Ultrabook hardware that could make it into a market star, and what Steve Ballmer could do to either ensure it wins or ensure it loses this week.
I really question Microsoft and Windows 8. It really looks as though Microsoft is putting all its eggs in one basket with this OS. I guess it could streamline Windows and give it the ability to evolve faster or it could be so rejected by all platforms that it kills Microsoft.
I am not so sure this is a smart move.
I tried the Acer, nice in concept, but the connection between the tablet screen and the keyboard base felt a little unrefined.
The Asus EEE Transformer feels a lot sturdier, plus the detachable keyboard base doubles as a secondary battery giving superior battery run times. In addition to these benefits, SquareTrade hardware reliability reports pitch Asus well ahead of Acer.
