PC have worst drop in almost 20 years

PC's have had the worst drop in sales in the last 19 years.

The market research firm IDC says shipments of the personal computers fell 14% worldwide last quarter.

That's nearly twice what they had predicted.

IDC partly blames the Windows 8 operating program from Microsoft.

It was expected to give the industry a boost, but received mixed reviews when it debuted.

IDC says Windows 8 not only failed to boost the PC market, but appears to have slowed it.
