    <p>If I think that the Andromeda device covers a need of mine (pocket notebook) will it make sense to buy it? Microsoft thinks it'll be a niche device but if I think I'm in that niche is it not entirely stupid to put money into it? </p>

    <p>Why are MS so slow? Google, Apple and Amazon constantly outpace them even when Microsoft start first (hololens) or at least strongly (Cortana)?</p><p>Even projects on established product types such as a browser (edge) or a to-do list are still not finished, polished or barely functional (good luck using a Facebook login on sites)</p><p><br></p><p>Is it a culture problem at Microsoft – they don't seem to have any drive or fight anymore? or is it that they can no longer attract the best people? </p><p><br></p><p>And before anybody says it's an enterprise company well sorry But the office products are getting more and more unstable with each release </p>

      <blockquote><a href="#238962"><em>In reply to adamcorbally:</em></a></blockquote><p>Yeah – I'd like to hear Paul and Brad's take on this. I'm tired of hearing about all the money spent on R&amp;D features that never make the light of day while products like Invoke and Cortana just languish.</p><p><br></p><p>And I too am weary of the "it's an enterprise company" response. If you don't get how important the consumer space is and are satisfied with MS becoming the next IBM then I frankly don't want t even talk.</p>

    <p>Are there going to be Snapdragon 6xx/4xx Windows PCs? While the Snadragon 835 PCs are nice, they seem to be only able to compete on battery life, seeing that performance is pretty low end. Are we going to see Snapdragon-based PCs hitting lower price points?</p>

    <p>Any reaction to Fuchsia? How it may impact consumer PC market? Seems to highlight the impact of losing out on the mobile piece of the pie. </p>
