Can Microsoft crawl out from under the stack of Apple products announced today?
I don't think I'm the only one stunned by the crush of new Apple products. What, a fourth-generation iPad already? New Mac Minis? Then the new iMacs on top of the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro?
Apple seemed to throw everything but the kitchen sink out there today. But that's only because the rest of the kitchen sink -- the new iPhone and iPod -- was already out there.
Maybe Apple just felt it was time to do a mega-upload of new products. Or maybe, just maybe, Apple wants to crush Microsoft and Surface and Windows 8.
So far, though, that's not happening. As I look at my news feed Tuesday evening, Windows 8 product news is dominating. (Though Microsoft Surface reviews are not very positive).
And count me among those just as focused on Windows 8 as Apple. Products like HP's Envy x2 hybrid or laptops with gorgeous touchscreens like thehave got my attention.
Not to mention Microsoft Surface. (I'm holding out for the next Surface, i.e., the Intel-based Surface Pro.)
And, come to think of it, my "new" Retina iPad -- as CNET's Roger Cheng-- is now obsolete, thanks to the newer fourth-generation iPad.
October 26 is almost here.
