In Major Reversal, Microsoft Decouples Kinect from Xbox One Commented on: 10 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: 10 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: 11 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...

PC Sales Decline Slows Dramatically in First Quarter Commented on: 15 weeks ago (April 10, 2014)

I think some people waited as long as they could before upgrading AND with Microsoft seemingly getting the message it made the choice a bit easier. There are going to be MANY decent alternatives...

In Latest Shakeup at Microsoft, Reller and Bates Reportedly Out Commented on: 20 weeks ago (March 4, 2014)

You can shuffle people in and out all day long. Unless they are listening and providing value add for customers in a competitive market place, nothing will change. For example, I went out and...

Ford Is Dropping Microsoft's In-Car Software Commented on: 21 weeks ago (February 25, 2014)

Information indicates that Nokia HERE will run on QNX as well as the previous Windows embedded in autos. Did the Nokia HERE product go to Microsoft with other Nokia resources or does it stay with...

Nokia Announces Android-Powered Smartphones Commented on: 21 weeks ago (February 24, 2014)
