It seems like Acer founder Stan Shih has gone gaga. Or perhaps he forgot to read the bloody memo, because he claims that ultrabooks and tablets are both short-term fads that apparently are going nowhere.
The big PCs are all that counts, according to him, and everything still needs to go through it. Well, Stan, you are wrong. Which is bad, because Acer used to do some cool stuff back in the day. His final argument: “consumers want products with low price and convenience.”
Yes, which is why they are buying ultrabooks and iPads like there’s no tomorrow. [Digitimes]
