  • Apple Vs. Microsoft: The Tide Is Turning [View article]
    Microsoft has been very innovative recently, it just has not been recognized by the media until now. With the Kinect, Microsoft created a UI technology that will redefine industries. With WP8, Microsoft was able to create a new innovative UI. Most impressively, it found a way to design a productivity centered tablet. It is about time they receive recognition.

  • Microsoft Windows 8: No Effect On The Smartphone Market [View article]
    I believe that cross platform integration between Windows 8 and Xbox will drive the sales of WP8. This level of integration is something that Apple and Google just cannot match.

  • Apple Has Already Won The Tablet Market [View article]
    The iPad is far outmatched by the Surface in the business market. The Surface is far better for productivity: it has a keyboard, office support, and true multi-tasking capabilities. That being said, the iPad has been, and will continue to be, a runaway hit in the consumer market.

  • Why The Microsoft Surface Tablets Should Beat The iPad [View article]
    The Surface and iPad are designed for two different audiences. The Surface uses its keyboard, multi-tasking, and office integration to appeal to the enterprise whereas the iPad uses its content consumption and application ecosystem to appeal to the consumer.

  • Microsoft's Surface Tablet Looks Like The Real Deal [View article]
    Because the Surface is designed for productivity, it has immense upside. The iPad, Nook and Kindle Fire are all designed for content consumption, so the Surface is in a class of its own. The Surface has Office, true multi-tasking, and "live tiles" application icons that display real-time updates. Because the Surface is designed for a different type of user, an enterprise user, it has significant upside.

  • Why The Microsoft Surface Tablets Should Beat The iPad [View article]
    The Surface and the iPad are designed for two different audiences, so you cannot compare the products directly. The surface is designed to replace the PC whereas the iPad is designed to supplement the PC.

  • Microsoft Surface Is No Apple iPad Killer [View article]
    The Surface and iPad are designed for two different audiences. The iPad is designed to be a tablet, a device that supplements a PC, whereas the Surface is designed to be a replacement to the PC. For that reason, these products can and will coexist.

    In the past few years, Microsoft has transitioned from lumbering behemoth to innovative. The transition was based upon its ideological shift from driving revenue from Office and Windows to emphasizing the creation of new products like the Kinect.

  • What Just Happened To Netflix? [View article]
    With the increase in on-demand video subscription services, Netflix's margins and profitability will decrease. Unless it transitions into an HBO like service, in which it would have exclusive rights to content, it will continue to become less and less profitable due to the bidding war of content.

  • Netflix's Original Programming Will Not Make Any Difference [View article]
    " it is (literally) impossible to determine if any given piece of content will be successful or not." While that is true, Netflix has immense data on movies and TV shows, so it has a pretty good idea of what will be a hit and what will be a miss. In addition, if Netflix did not move to original programming, there would be nothing that would separate it from other streaming services. Original programming was the only strategic decision for Netflix.

  • Netflix: The Comeback Kid? [View article]
    Exclusive content will separate Netflix from the other content streaming services, and will expand its profit margins. Strategically, it makes the most sense for Netflix to transition into an HBO or Showtime than remain in its highly competitive market.

  • 3 Reasons To Consider Netflix [View article]
    With multiple competitors in the content streaming market, Netflix's only strategic move is to create exclusive content. That would set it apart from competitors. Otherwise, it becomes replaceable.
