Tablet sales rocketing as Microsoft prepare an 80" monster tablet

25 May 2012


It’s official – Britain is OVERDOSING ON TABLETS! New figures from analyst boffins GfK shows that in April 2012, sales of the small, thin personal computers rose by 214% when compared with the same month in 2011. But it looks as though the victims in all of this is the stupid little tiny netbook – sales of those weird little contraptions have fallen by 64% in the same set of figures. So sad.

Tablets accounted for 9.9 per cent of all IT sales in the UK last month, but perhaps the best is yet to come. There are rumours that Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer has an 80 INCH Win8 tablet in his office that has become his own personal nerve centre. Microsoft vice president Frank Shaw told Wired: “He’s got rid of his phone, he’s got rid of his note paper. It’s touch-enabled and it’s hung on his wall,” before admitting that it’s a device that Microsoft will be one day selling.

Time to clear some wall space folks…

    An 80 inch tablet? I find that hard to swallow.

    I once did a porno with Cock Robin. Should have seen me go at it all night! Sadly, I now have metal AIDS after playing hide and seek with Tweeky. *you already know why.

    Still, I think I could still have a go at that sexy feral trolley. I wonder if there are any other feral trolleys out there or if that is the only one.

    As usual the lazy bloated diabetic of the technology arena arrives late at the party to announce they're releasing something that no one really needs nor wants and it'll be made by Nokia who'll want a fucking mortgage to buy one. Fucking spastics.

    Thanks for the mention Sicknote; it's been hard to get any form of publicity since the 1980's. Most people forget the movies we made with Cock-Robin and friends. We're still available for parties and special events; please check out our website.
