Intel Soars on Improved PC Sales, Predicts Bonanza Fourth Quarter Commented on: 9 weeks ago (October 15, 2014)

With pressure from ARM, AMD, etc... Intel will do well if it continues to innovate (performance/power ratio), but only if they keep their prices reasonable on the lower end devices. Many folks...

Samsung Halts Laptop Sales in Europe Commented on: 12 weeks ago (September 25, 2014)

More reason for Microsoft to see that they MUST continue to evolve Windows, but make sure to include features and functions not available on other platforms and to include that in base versions,...

Ballmer's Out. Is Gates Next? Commented on: 17 weeks ago (August 22, 2014)

Paul, did my joking comment about Nadella being a possible Trojan touch a nerve ?

Short Takes: August 22, 2014 Commented on: 17 weeks ago (August 22, 2014)

Agree that Microsoft botched the Xbox announcement. Disagree that the flip flop was the reason that people stayed away. $100 price difference, and the worry that Microsoft wasn't going to let...

Steve Ballmer Unexpectedly Steps Down from Microsoft Board Commented on: 17 weeks ago (August 21, 2014)

Nadella came from Sun in 1992 , wouldn't it be interesting if he was a Trojan Horse/sleeper agent planted by Sun to bring down Microsoft. Conspiracy Theorists know, The Truth is out There !

In Major Reversal, Microsoft Decouples Kinect from Xbox One Commented on: 31 weeks ago (May 14, 2014)

Nothing wrong wit cross-selling, but Microsoft was taking things too far and mandating too many things. That was fine 10 years ago (at least for them) as there weren't as many options for things...

Fallen Smart Phone Giants Look for Love in the Bottom of the Market Commented on: 31 weeks ago (May 13, 2014)

Lots of manufacturers going after the same market. May be a bit difficult to differentiate themselves (possibly by country), unless the come up with a killer application OR unless they decide to...

Microsoft to Launch Surface Mini on May 20 Commented on: 32 weeks ago (May 6, 2014)

Price will be a big part of the success of these devices. Price it right (and since it is an RT device, that means pretty low) and it might do reasonably well. Price it too high and they will be...
