  • Yahoo Should Pay You To Use Its Search Engine - It Makes Financial Sense [View article]
    You're right BUT... a bidding war means that you're in the game. That's different from today.

  • Stephen Elop's Mistake At Nokia Could Make Him The Right Person To Replace Ballmer [View article]
    Great analysis.

    The only problem is that you could argue that Elops myopic outlook is EXACTLY why he shouldnt be CEO. Just more of the same.

    You make both cases within the same article.

    That's one way to look at it. That would be waving the white flag of defeat though....

  • Steve Ballmer Departure Not Worth $20 Billion [View article]
    Umm you said

    "Sinofsky had reported to work at Redmond as the President of Windows Division for the past 23 years."

    Incorrect - He became the president of the Windows Division in July of 2009.

    I do agree that the resignation is overhyped.

  • Has Microsoft's Xbox One Destroyed Apple TV? [View article]
    LOL.

    This article is wildly ambitious.

    First, the Xbox One looks monstrous. Not something people would want in their living room in general. Aesthetically it's a big step backward.

    Next, it's expensive. At full console price, it's not going to attract customers just to watch TV differently.

    Third, it remains to be seen if consumers are looking for yet another vendor to "transform" the way we watch TV. A lot of consumers like the way they watch TV just fine and even though TV a la carte would be cool, it remains to be seen if Microsoft is the vendor that can make it happen.

    Finally, once again, have you seen how this thing looks?

  • 8 Billion-Dollar Mistakes Microsoft Made That Killed Windows 8 And Led To Windows 8.1 [View article]
    *sigh* Ignorance should be a crime.

    Let me respond to Skiz before I head out for the day.

    Each of #1-8 are simply rehashes of what other opinion writers are saying.

    --- No need to rehash, I was one of those writers. :-)

    No data. Has Mr. O seen the testing results?

    --- Being that I ran some of the most popular Windows sites on the web, I'm betting I had a better empirical feel for the data than you?

    Any figures about start menu replacements being the downloaded to the majority of the 100+ million licenses sold?

    --- Two things, One, yes there is data out there from Pokki, Start8 etc about the amount of downloads (I believe the total was around 8 to 10 million last i checked). Two, stop bandying around the 100 million number recklessly - makes you sound like a simpleton.

    Any evidence that people aren't buying Windows PCs because of the ads? Any sales data? Anything at all that isn't opinion?

    --- The sales data is pretty conclusive. Windows 8 is selling at close to the same rate as Windows 7 even though it's a much bigger market now - use your common sense and do the math.

    Finally, the conclusion is that billions were left on the table because of Windows 8. Considering the super-quick adoption rate of Windows tablets & convertables, and considering the sales pace that is close to Windows 7, I'm really struggling to follow how he's getting there.

    --- Not surprised you're struggling. 8.1 is a response to user feedback. Microsoft have acknowledged that. If they received enough negative feedback to do a new release, we can extrapolate that there was enough NEGATIVE consumer data to justify that. If there was enough NEGATIVE consumer data to justify that, we can assume it was related to sales and not just sentiment. Microsoft is a BUSINESS, they wouldn't spend more DEVELOPMENT DOLLARS to fix a product unless it was related to LOSSES.

    Hope that explains it plainly enough for you.
