Empathy is the ability to recognize the feelings experienced by others.
Liberals tend to have more feelings and emotions and be more empathetic to others, so they make illogical and unreasonable decisions based on feelings and emotions..
Conservatives think more with their own feelings and emotions but their level of empathy is lower, so they reason out a logical solution from unreasonable and illogical starting points.
Most people aren't all that bright or know their butt from a hole in the wall when it comes to technology. The shear fact that they can share between their "awesome" Windows 8 desk top and their mobile app is something new and novel to them. Never mind there is enough integration for the iOS and Android platforms into Windows that is borderline seamless to people who know better. RT's ONLY chance for success is from these casual users because it will not come from the tech savvy or business community.
The real crowd MS might have been aiming for, the business community, is going to avoid this product thus limiting its lifespan. The biggest draw of Windows 8 is the ability to use the metro apps between all devices, this is greatest weakness also. To get the full functionality of Windows 8 cross platform features requires all new hardware on the mobile side, at least. Companies have already shelled out for Iphones/iPads or Andriod devices and adjusted their IT infrastructure to work with these devices, then add that Enterprise customers not jumping on the WIndows 8 bandwagon right away, it really puts a crimp in the user base of Windows 8 RT.
Windows 8 RT and its assoicated hardware products will enjoy a moderate sales number. Its inter-connectivity could make it a major force, but its hit the market a day late and a dollar short to knock off iOS and Andriod based products.
