Amazingly, Microsoft May Not Miss Boat on Tablets

theodp (442580) writes "In a NASCAR race, you can finish 1st or 2nd by leading the whole way, or by moving up after spectacular crashes take out those ahead of you. The same may hold true for the tablet race, where Apple is in 1st place having lead the whole way, while Microsoft could advance into 2nd place as those once ahead of it crash and burn. 'Microsoft tablets based on Windows 8 won’t be ready until next year,' observes SplatF's Dan Frommer. 'Unexpectedly, that might not be too late to matter.' In Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, the race ends with all cars being wrecked and Formula I racer Girard and NASCAR driver Bobby running on foot to the finish line. Could we see a repeat in 2012 with 'Jean Girard' Jobs and 'Ricky Bobby' Ballmer?"
