  • Google Investors Shouldn't Rest On Their Laurels, Facebook Bids For Top Spot [View article]
    And this is just inside Facebook's closed garden. Imagine if Facebook expands outside their closed garden? What if Facebook did something like Google Maps and put their ads on it. Or if they bought a site like Yelp and placed their ad network on that. Lots of areas they can expand outside their closed garden for the general public.

  • Are Undesirable Accounts Destroying Facebook's Image? [View article]
    Yes, Twitter is much much worse at building a profile of you from all your posts. Be careful what you post on Twitter.

    I want to see Facebook build-out their ecosystem past their closed wall. Maybe they should build a map app like Google and Apple have and start ads on it like Google has done.

    Facebook needs to start thinking outside the box, or in their case, outside their closed garden. There are billions of people out there with no FB account that they could sell ads to. They just need more diverse platforms.

  • It's True, Apple Is About To Crush Microsoft With Business Customers [View article]
    Jobs was actually challenging Bill Gates Windows OS for IBM PCs which started Microsoft.

    I think Apple won that battle. IBM PCs are now Leveno. And Bill Gates is setting up outhouses in the third world!

    However, a lot of Apple haters were born back than. All those kids that wanted a Mac, but got a mouse-less IBM PC for Xmas still hate their dad's and Apple to this day!

    Will be a tough hill to climb.
    A ton of Apple haters out there and a lot are analysts. You know the ones, they are pushing Google and Android until hell freezes over.

    Last I heard, most enterprise setups are not cheap. Hardware, design, setup, and support is what made Oracle, MS, and IBM billion dollar companies and their CEOs some of the richest people in the World.

    Most companies can create their own custom apps in house. Also, this is what the App Store and iTunes is for. Anybody can sell business enterprise apps.

    Seems all the failing enterprise companies are pushing cloud services now, even if they are not good at it. It is the new "buzz" word to push business server contracts.

    Apple does not need to worry about going into enterprise services, they need to first shore-up their ecosystem which still has a lot of holes in it. To start, they need to open their wallet and gut Apple Maps and rebuild one that loads fast, has a good database, and new GIS business tools for users. Does Cook realize that most users are still using Google Maps which supports Google's mobile ecosystem and ad revenue base? How many years has this been going on?

    Shore-up the leaky ecosystem and than worry about expanding to business enterprise.

  • The One Lingering Concern From Apple's Earnings [View article]
    The one lingering concern I have with Apple is what is going on with Apple Maps? Does Cook realize that maps is one of the cornerstones of their growing ecosystem? Does he realize that Google Maps app is still on most IOS devices since it actually loads fast and is updated!
    Apple needs to open their wallet and buy a leading map company like ESRI and fix the rendering, the database, and add a fleet of business mapping tools that Google does not have!

    This ongoing maps nightmare needs addressing ASAP.

  • Things Overlooked In Apple's Q4 Conference Call [View article]
    "Won the race"?

    You must not have an Google Adsense account? Ask anybody running Google analytics which mobile device and browser convert$ the most. Their answer will always be Apple devices and Apple IOS. For some reason Android does NOT render web pages well like IOS. Since Google designed a cheap and poorly rendering mobile OS, they are slowly handing the whole mobile ad revenue market over to Apple. And it will only get worse with the new larger screen IOS devices selling like hot cakes.
    And if your a app developer, which mobile OS would you want to first release your new app to?

    It is a slow and embarrassing death for Google's mobile ad revenue. Slow, steady, and meticulous will beat fast, greedy and sloppy every time!

    Google and Samsung will NEVER be a team! I don't see Google removing default apps or sharing their declining ad revenue anytime soon. Samsung is still in search of a real open source OS that is not controlled by Google.

  • Apple/GT Advanced Technologies Settlement: Ending The Madness [View article]
    This "mismanagement" goes on all the time. This scenario is once again being played out with HIMAX and Google over Google Glass. Investors need to look at long playing hold-ups with a magnifying glass. There are red flags flying everywhere, if they just look past the smoke and mirrors.
