iPad to send Windows into negative growth for the first time ever?

No comments:



SAI:

Microsoft’s consumer PC sales growth has pretty much never declined. Not even when Microsoft released Vista. Not even when the economy went in the toilet. But suddenly, the growth of sales is about to go negative, says Citi analyst Walter Pritchard.
If Windows starts to decline in numbers, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer might actually be in trouble. If things weren’t bad enough, Microsoft also has to contend with a ChromeOS from Google and maybe even some ARM powered laptops from Apple.

This is why Microsoft is giving away xbox360 with any windows 7 pc purchase of $699.99 or more, more details here.

Apple to Announce Back-To-School Special at WWDC? iPad Discount?

No comments:



Apple will reportedly announce its Back-to-School special at WWDC which will bundle a free iPod touch or possibly a $200 iPad discount with the purchase of a Mac.

One of our Apple sources has informed us that they’ve been hearing Apple’s yearly back-to-school special will be announced at WWDC next month. We have been told Apple will continue to offer educational discounts on computers and either a free iPod touch, or $229 towards the purchase of any other iPod. Our source also let us know that there might be something new in the works, as well… they heard that it’s possible Apple might offer students up to $200 off an iPad with the purchase of a new Mac. If true, this would be pretty great deal.




*thanks iclarified*

You can see how this along with amazing iPad sales are destroying Microsoft and windows sales. Microsoft didn't want to feel left out and came out with their own promo for students, buy a windows 7 pc and get a xbox360 free and it can be seen here.
