This is an excellent read comparing the movie "Gangs of New York" to the current Microsoft and Apple battle. Written by a former MSFT employee now working for Amazon.

I know many at the FOOL have already written of the Surface tablet but I believe they have become victims of the Apple hype to some extent.

A rumored $400 million Surface campaign begins tonight on Monday Night Football and Dancing with Stars.

My non-analyst guess is that the Surface is going to be a huge sleeper hit and surprise the non-believers. Android tablets will almost disappear under the onslaught of the Surface and the OEM tablets/hybrids (except the Kindle Fire). The market share for the iPad will fall, but still be a force.
