Let's face it. In the consumer electronics space, Microsoft is floundering. But their lack of success isn't the result of their products, and it's definitely not the result of their technology.
The same magic could be performed by Windows RT tablets.
A minority of deep-pocket consumers would buy Microsoft's magic table. Pundits would obsess over them. Jimmy Fallon would gush about it on TV. Everybody would be talking about Microsoft's table instead of Google's Glasses or Apple's non-existent wristwatch.
