Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

So what? Apple could be a Musical Vibrating Electronic Dildo manufacturer for all I care, and they could have a band composing and recording new music to sell with next year's model iDildo. So, Apple is not a 100% software and they are not 100% hardware either. I'm pretty sure Burger King's got some janitor-type jobs, but that doesn't change them from being a fast food restaurant with the primary goal being serving (relatively shitty) food.
