  • Intel: A Shift In Sentiment? [View article]
    My sister in law got a galaxy 3 for Christmas. That was by far the snappiest android tablet I have ever used. I also did quite a bit of test driving yesterday at the electronics store, which was packed with people buying laptops and convertibles. The Surface display was absolutely mobbed (the Pro 2 is a ridiculous machine *drool*). The point us, baytrail devices (Venue 8 pro is my favorite) are amazing, and windows convertibles and tablets with Baytrail kick the snot out of Ipads or anything running android. Sentiment is shifting because Baytrail has begun the next major revolution in computing, and investors are starting to realize that.

    Twtr is not a tech stock. They don't create any tech, they use tech to entertain idiots.

  • BlackBerry: Yes, Things Can Get Worse [View article]
    The problem with BBRY is they are fighting yesterday's battles. There is no money in handsets, unless your Apple. The money is in the ecosystem and this ecosystem needs to transcend phones. Without search, app store, interoperability between tablets, computers etc, you've got nothing. BBRY has got nothing. We're talking about a company that thinks having a physical keyboard is a selling feature.

  • Aaron's Leases, You Should Buy [View article]
    Hmmm, interesting. A strengthening economy would seem to reduce the market of a company like this. However, it is widely considered that a strengthening economy would bring about higher interest rates, which would be a positive for a company like this.

  • Microsoft Rises From The Ashes As A Stock To Own Now [View article]
    Microsoft's products make the world go round, more than any other tech company, and make the company enormous profits doing it. This has never been in question. Now they are moving into the "sexy" area of consumer electronics that has garnered all the attention, but any gains in these areas are gravy. The share price should be higher, based on the core business alone.

  • Microsoft Surface 2/Surface Pro 2 reportedly sold out [View news story]
    These models have been featured prominently in retailers this time around. The Windows machines in general seem to be getting much more love.

  • Microsoft's Google Bash Backfires [View article]
    Maybe you need to look at it in comparison like IOS vs OSx. People are obviously buying Ipads even though a Macbook is obviously better.

  • Microsoft reportedly looking to bring back Windows Start menu [View news story]
    People forget that windows XP was never successful until service pack 2. To me, windows 8 is akin to windows 95, the first attempt at a new paradigm. I have been using windows 8 since the preview and am quite used to it now. There is obviously things that can be improved, but I don't doubt they will be. I actually like the full screen start menu, which is how I view the modern UI, and with a very small amount of work customizing it, it is far superior to the old start button access. People complain too much. If you have ever used a Surface or something akin to it, it becomes very apparent what they are going for, and there is no doubt in my mind that they will get it right given time.

  • Intel: Someone Has To Be Wrong [View article]
    I think analysts have gotten their hands on a Venue 8 or a Surface Pro 2. The bottom line is, mobile computing has always been about offering a lesser product then what was available in a non-mobile device in terms of performance, and the ability to get things done. Ipads and Galaxies are not PC's, or even real substitutes for anything other then content consumption, whether its games, video or music. But this is all we've had. The new batch of Intel based mobile devices are full fledged PC's in a mobile package. It is what Intel has promised us and finally delivered. There is a reason Ipads have not flooded the boardrooms of America, or really been used in any kind of business form other then sales, they just aren't good enough to handle real workloads.

    I am currently working on moving all of my companies inventory management, payroll, estimating and job flow functions between the office and sites in the field into the cloud using Office 365. We are going to put tablets on every job site to streamline these processes. As well, we will be using Skydrive to collaborate between the office and the field on AutoCAD drawings, to create a more seamless transition between design, implementation and the "as-built" processes. None of these things have been truly feasible until now. The new batch of Intel based mobile devices running Windows 8 and utilizing Office 365 make it a snap. There will be a "PC refresh" based on the availability of mobile devices capable of integrating with the established business software environment.

    people talk about Intel missing the mobile revolution when the reality is it has just begun.

  • Intel's 40 Million Tablet Campaign Finally Makes Sense [View article]
    This is absolutely depressing. Intel has made chips that allow us to finally have PC power in a mobile device, and its success is going to be based on its ability to play Temple Run?!?!?!

    what the hell has happened to our society?

  • Resurrection Of The Microsoft Surface Could Be A Big Plus For Both Microsoft And Intel [View article]
    Its all about marketing at this point. The Surface Pro 2 (or clones like Dell Venue 11) is the obvious choice for business tablet, it is just up to MS to make sure enough people know this. What I am seeing is promising, with Surfaces showing up in the background of popular tv shows, Surface displays taking prominent positions in retail outlets and Office 365 numbers showing the continued strength of MS in the enterprise.

  • Intel's SoFIA Could Be A Real Bombshell [View article]
    This scenario is the main reason I an long INTC and MS. I have to believe that the brand hype that is keeping Apple and Samsung dominant will die down and people like the members of your family would just start using a single Windows 8.1 hybrid device. Wouldn't you? It just boggles my mind that these things aren't flying off the shelves faster then Ipads.
