  • Why Windows 10 Will Power Microsoft's Stock Even Higher [View article]
    OK this article best explains it. If you upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 it is free if you upgrade before a year after July.

  • Why Windows 10 Will Power Microsoft's Stock Even Higher [View article]
    That article states that you don't pay a "yearly" subscription. But after a year of upgrading from windows 7 or 8 then you must pay for windows 10. Correct?

  • Why Windows 10 Will Power Microsoft's Stock Even Higher [View article]
    Windows 10 will help, but I'm willing to bet most of them were free upgrades. And even they probably don't know it's only good for a year. The key to MS future will be in October. New mobile devices and Windows mobile will have to shine! Mobility is where it is at nowadays!

  • Why Apple's Retina 5K iMac And Mac Pro Increase Its Competitive Advantage [View article]
    Don't rule out the mac mini, I know several are jumping platforms that have to go the cheapest route. And you can always dual boot if you feel the need to run windows.

  • Time To Eat Your Apple Pie [View article]
    So many assumptions based on Hardware? How many teraflops do you expect out of a smartphone? Most phones will do almost anything the others will do no matter who builds them! Apple will do fine.

  • Pouring A Little Cold Water On Apple Investors [View article]
    Pour your cold water on us, it creates steam, and with that steam they will power the rest of the world with them. Apple has yet to put the foot into the water with the watch just yet. If I remember correctly it will need the iphone to do a lot of things. The iPhone 6 has yet to ship to the masses, complete step 1 first!
    Apple pay they have put the foot into the water with this, and they are getting bugs and workarounds etc out of the way to make a better product. Test and configure to improve.
    Then step 3 with the watch, and yes people will buy them! People bore quickly in todays time and they want a new fad, a new toy, a new cool factor etc.
    This is how we roll!

  • Apple: Breaking The Law (Of Large Numbers) And Getting Away With It [View article]
    People rant about Innovation are not seeing the whole picture. Sure some phones/tablets/OS features could have been done differently or better, and will be better in the future (we hope). The continuity of everything coming together that we have yet to experience is in the near future, from home entertainment to health and wearables etc. And that is what I am investing in...the Future!

  • WSJ: Apple to merge Beats Music with iTunes as downloads drop [View news story]
    Beats music is horrible in desktop mode (using Chrome). It will have to be vastly improved before I even think about paying for it if they continue the current model.
    I'm assuming it will use iTunes platform?

  • Update: Apple's Mac Produces Incredible Growth [View article]
    More people have iPads than they do macs, and are happy with their current device, or money management has them awaiting the purchase of a mac mini for their next purchase to round out their productivity. A lot of 1st timers, including myself will own their 1st iPhone when available (6+ for me).
    I can't speak for others on this matter, but for me Microsoft does not have anything that gives me a "have to" reason to stay with them. Not downing them, it's just that Apple appeals to me more.
    My Note 3 is wonderful, but Android 5 is coming out and I have to wait for Samsung to play with it, then my cell phone carrier will have to bloat it, then I might get it or have to buy the newest phone to get it.
    If I do want to run Microsoft I can always dual boot on my mac. Given time with updates, and even possibly more iPad models coming later, more ipads will most likely sell, along with more macs.
