Short Takes: June 6, 2014 Commented on: 42 weeks ago (June 6, 2014)

Tim is actually pretty good at math. Good enough that he has played in instrumental part in building the most profitable company in the world.

You really don't seem to understand...

Apple Buys Beats for $3 Billion Commented on: 43 weeks ago (May 29, 2014)

Using the total iTunes user base as the denominator in figuring out the success of iTunes Radio is misleading. iTunes Radio is only available in a handful of countries.

Microsoft Earns Less, But Beats Expectations Commented on: 48 weeks ago (April 24, 2014)

Great quarter for MS. While Nadella's first quarter I would imagine most of this came from existing business decisions but that is great as he starts wit a clean slate rather than an albatross of...

Google Offered to Help Samsung in its Patent Battles with Apple Commented on: 48 weeks ago (April 24, 2014)

If you read Paul's article it explains why Apple sued Samsung and not Google and it has nothing to do with fear. It is because Samsung is selling the product that allegedly violates patents and...

Short Takes: April 18, 2014 Commented on: 49 weeks ago (April 18, 2014)

PS4 sales vs. XBOX One sales falls into the same trap as Mac vs. PC. iPhone v.s Android v.s Windows phone. It all makes the assumption that for one company to win another has to lose. Paul, you...

Microsoft Will No Longer Inspect Personal Data When a Crime is Suspected Commented on: 51 weeks ago (March 31, 2014)

I think MS made the right call and the turnaround on this coming up as an issue and them making the changes was impressive as well. I don't expect Google would ever make this sort of change but it...

The AppleTV thing is funny. Paul do you now have some sort of access to Apple to find out if a product is profitable or not? Wood's comment was speculation but now you have turned it into fact...

It's Official: Microsoft Releases Office for iPad Commented on: 1 year ago (March 28, 2014)

People have been using the iPad for productivity pretty much since the iPad came out. Is it the majority of users? I would say no, but there is evidence of it use for productivity all over the...

Short Takes: March 21, 2014 Commented on: 1 year ago (March 21, 2014)

It takes a special kind of stupid to use MSN and Hotmail as part of your theft of MS products.

That said, I understand that what MS did was totally legal but it still doesn't sit well with...
