We will have to see.

I know every little about Windows 8 admittedly. I do know that the government has basically reached a tipping point in its ongoing anti-trust investigation into Google. They've invested so much time and effort, and Google isn't budging or blinking that charges at some point seem inevitable (I don't want to get into a political discussion, I would say charges are inevitable regardless or administration). Too much time, effort and money, and a growing case that Google is inflating its own results to its own properties.

The irony of this "distraction" is just like in the case of Microsoft, the wheels of justice turn so slow that by the time and finding is made, and any potential punishment given, the train will have moved so far down the path that the finding will be irrelevant, but could wound Google worse than if justice moved faster.

I don't think Android tablets will "go away," too much ecosystem in place now. I do think if Windows 8 and the tablets are viable/priced right the march will be slowed.

When I look at Microsoft I ask myself this question. Can they do the same good job they've done managing Microsoft Office and Office 365 together, while holding back the tide of Open Office and Google Docs (gee, wasn't Microsoft Office supposed to be dead by now so claimed some experts). Microsoft and the Office team have done an excellent job in the balancing act.

Or, will this be another sad Windows Phone style flop.
