The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discusses topics around the investing world.

Microsoft has its much-anticipated Windows 8, which caters to PC and mobile users alike, launching later this year, and one market observer thinks it could shift the balance of power decisively in Mr. Softy's favor.

Not only that, but you'll also get continuing updates whenever major Apple news breaks. Read more about this timely opportunity here.
