QNX also powers GM's My Link.

Yeah post-apple world as their market cap approaches 700 billion.

More like a post Microsoft world if anything. Their market cap was once 500 billion, its now 399 Billion....just 300...

I love my Messenger, Office Communicator, Lync, Skype app.

Let me email my friends about this change from my passport, hotmail, msn, live outlook.com account.

This clearly is the new...

I am not going to say that Microsoft won't make a Billion off of MDM as I think there is tons of money to be made in this space.

That said I CANT imagine why anyone would pick this cyborg...

I don't know a single person that wants a touch based Office on a computer.

Who is off the mark?

Think about this for a min. What divisions at Microsoft make money? Its not the Surface, or Bing, or Xbox (after 10 years), or Windows phone.

Its the...

"Microsoft has pinned its hopes to a broader, more entertainment-driven strategy that will likely prove more popular with a mass audience, however."

This is everything to be honest. The...

Sorry I don't trust MS numbers. Is that into consumer hands or to Target (name your store) where I saw a lot of Xbox Ones waiting to be sold?

My kids where huge Xbox 360 fans but they are...

Unless, day one, there is a way to run it from a browser on a PC/Mac and on tablet devices with iOS/Android this move will fail big time.

Netflix and Amazon are on everything. If I had to...

I agree its a tie, something 81 million for the 360 and 82 million for the PS3.

The key is that the 360 was out on the market for a full year before the PS3 and Wii. One would assume that...

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 17:39

But the 360 sold fewer units than the PS3 and Wii. That with a full year more of being on the market.

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 17:37

How does that translate in to financial success? The Xbox division was 2.8 billion in the whole at the end of 2012. That was BEFORE the cost of the Xbox One.

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 13:34

So the 360 has fallen to 3rd place for the "last generation". This happened despite it having a full year more on the market than the PS3 and Wii.

I predict it will be even worse for this...

Merry Christmas from all of us at Microsoft. Just after the first of the year we will be killing off a version of Windows. If your lucky it won't be the one that is wrapped up under the tree....

Love the spin but everyone knew you were an Xbox guy and would bag on something bout the PS4/Sony

I got my PS4 on Friday the 15th at 1:30 pm CST from Amazon. I had already downloaded the 1...

It works fine for us...because the servers (vmware) are on premise. I agree running a desktop over internet connections would suck for a desktop type of user.

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 - 12:10

90% of our user have a Wyse client setup to hit a Windows 2008 R2 virtualized (on vmware) TS farm or a Windows 7 VDI. We moved to this platform in 2006. The 2003 terminal servers back then were...

Friday, November 8, 2013 - 20:41

Um Sony HAS made money, lots of it off of its play station line. The Xbox division is still after all this time something like 3 billion in the RED.

It makes sense to sell off or kill the...

It does seem like he has to always get a ding in there. Childish at best. He has been doing the same thing for years. He has mellowed (age?) but its still there and just as lame as before....

Friday, October 25, 2013 - 00:16

I am surprised its NOT higher. In November of 2012 Microsoft jacked the prices of CAL's by 15% across the board. (Windows CAL's, Office CAL's, TS CAL's, Lync...Exchange...etc)

On November...

You live in a fantasy land. Corporations will wait to the last min to get off Windows 7. It has been that way with every version so far.

Corporations do not exist to constantly update...

HTML5....is all you need for a Android apps. I pretty sure he did not say that the enterprise is going to move to Android as in servers?. Run tablets...

Ummmmm yeah it was Netflix and other options that helped me cut the cord already. Never going back either.

Cant see how this will help anything for the cable companies.

My company this Friday will walk away from Microsoft. We will end our EA agreement after many years and buy Microsoft software when we need it. Our standard cycle is 5-7 years for things like...

Lines....are usually only at the Apple stores. My co-worker went to our local ATT store and there was only a modest line there as well on Friday. No silver or gold either.

Really? Last quarter, you know the quarter right before new hardware came out, they sold 38 million iPhones.

You would think it would have been their worst quarter. I bet they sell over...

I have no doubt that August was the biggest activation month for Windows 8 to date.

Windows 8 came out last October, well past the "back to school" computer sales. Even during the December...

I would not be surprised if next month when the iPads, new Haswell based Mac's and OS X Mavericks ship that a new version of the OS X iWork ships as well and for free.

If this is true I can...

Exactly how is it a rip off?

What you and Paul both dont get is that this is really nothing different from the past 2-4 years for Apple.

Last year.....iPhone 5 was top of the line,...
