    Who wants an overpriced laptop with a terrible keyboard, other than Apple fans? Sorry, Intel..you're gonna continue to eat it on "ultrabooks". The future belongs to mid-range, convertible tablets with hideaway keyboards selling for under $500. Windows 8 will only make things worse if that's what Intel's campaign for touch on Ultrabooks is really all about. At this rate Android will own the mobile desktop within three years if Google wants it to.

Microsoft is in serious trouble if it doesn't stop pretending to be Apple and get its head back in the game. Intel will also take a pretty heavy hit if they keep trying to steer the market towards places it doesn't want to go.

    But, I guess Microsoft & Intel's crystal balls are allowing them to see a future where humanity has lost all it's intelligence, and we're all reduced to being grunting cavemen huddling over fires, holding an Intel branded slate running a Microsoft OS, mindlessly poking "Like" icons before getting eaten by feral animals. Swap Microsoft for Apple if you are so inclined, because it changes nothing.
