Another iPad Victim

November 6th, 2013 - 2:09 pm


Asus CEO J.T. Wang has been shown the door after his company lost nearly half a billion US dollars just last quarter.

He’d tied the company’s fortunes to building netbooks — the same cheap, flimsy laptop computers some smart critics were insisting a few years Apple just had to build if the company was to survive.

They made iPads instead.

Er, um, no. You are confusing Asus with Acer. Asus has been doing fine, and their latest tabtop(laplet, tabnote, whatever), is pretty slick and is actually selling very well. Frustratingly, above msrp in a a lot of places.

Yeah, that had me going for a minute until I read the article.

Acer still makes nice monitors. At least the one I bought a couple years ago is.

Mistakes happen. What makes vvang's fate much deserved is he let it keep happening through five generations of iPad.

(And.. "-ang" is a banned word? Seriously?)
