  • Intel: Dispelling A Dangerous Misconception [View article]
    "Robert at least knows the historically-accepted distinction between imply and infer, even if it has been muddied by the secular trend in ignorance about language."

    3rd person reference? Detailed analysis of the English language? Hold on while I go get my autograph book so you can feel superior

    I'm incredibly happy with my lumia 920 came from an iphone never used android but all my friends have androids... so I've played around with them...

    Its personal preference but I think the WP setup is sleek and uncomplicated...

  • Why Microsoft Should Buy BlackBerry Post Nokia And Rule The Galaxy As Father And Son [View article]
    I've read two trains of thought on Nokia

    1. They are done with phones/devices will focus on NSN and the HERE segments.

    2. Nok is dumping those because they have something big in the pipeline which they think will be ready by 2016-2017 which may revolutionize the mobile market.


    Both are very speculative with no real supporting facts; personally the asha line isn't profitable enough to cover costs and without smartphones to compensate it's difficult to justify. You are either all in or all out... when you do stuff half way typically it doesn't turn out well. Case in point MSFT depending on OEM's to push Windows Phone... failed in my opinion. (I don't consider NOK a typical OEM due to all the agreements they had; NOK has been more or less an extension of MSFT ever since).

    Haha i had the same reaction; but sometimes short articles can be good... its a delicate balance. Perhaps the author felt that with the other 300 articles that have been written since the NOK announcement that he only had a little to add to the greater conversation.

    I think there will always be a market for basic phones, even if its niche only.... or very small. I only say that because there will always be poor people (not meant as an insult just thats life). The poor still need decent mobile phones so they can communicate with the world.

    If your out shopping and work wants you to pick up a few extra shift hours and you only have a home phone... someone else gets those hours... so having a budget mobile phone in my opinion is really important.

    I wouldn't be surprised if NOK forced MSFT as part of the deal to take up the asha line...

    I actually might go look at this, phablets have never really been my thing but just the other day I felt like it would be really nice to get one instead of a full tablet...

    Still waiting to see information on the Surface Pro V2 though as well...

  • August Nonfarm Payrolls misses estimates [View news story]
    I agree we probably would be in disaster land without QE... but I wonder if that wouldnt be better then faux growth land... at least if you bite the bullet and let a true honest bottom set in you can start to rebuild... with QE we aren't trying to fix problems because we have covered them up.

    Its all in good fun and I think bbro knows it :) (or if not much <3 bbro!!).

    He has stuck to his guns which is good he has conviction; and that is pretty rare I certainly have a hard time deciding which way we are headed.

    youngman there are 'hidden leading indicators' that are firmly positive people who drop out of the labor force no longer matter as those still in the labor force will pay taxes for them to exist.

    bbro is of the camp where if the numbers are good everything is good, if they are bad/disappointing then there are some 'hidden leading indicators' only he knows about that still point to positives...

    Can't fault the guy for being optimistic though!

    I like the YHOO comparison as the situations are somewhat similar... both are/were struggling when a new CEO was selected... hope we can get someone who can shake things up like Mayer... although her changes are not quite yet proven the stock price certainly thinks shes done well. (I don't disagree in case that isn't clear love her would love to go back in time and buy yhoo when she signed up...)
