  • Microsoft reveals new fitness tracker, Lumia 950/950XL, Surface Pro 4, Surface Book [View news story]
    Just as I was getting excited to go all in with MSFT...they decide to go the exclusive route with the lumia 950 and AT&T. Sigh. Apple just makes more sense in every way anymore.

  • Will Ad Blocking Be Google's Kryptonite? [View article]
    Everyone has a different experience. For me, my mobile bandwidth is costly, and the data cap is MUCH less than my cable at home. So when I see videos that autoplay or ads that pop up everywhere, then ya I love the adblockers and anything else that stops the annoyances. Furthermore there are websites in the news feed that I will not click on because they have pop ups wanting you to subscribe etc. I've learned which ones to Not click on very fast. If I want something I will Google it or Bing, and I don't mind the ads when I search for something. So am I paying twice for the ads via bandwidth?

  • The New Apple TV's Missed Opportunities [View article]
    Brings me to the phone first, then camera, gaming, musical device senario! I am looking for a device to watch tv/movies with good apps. The rest are just extras. I liked the MLB app and I'm hoping for a similar NFL app as well as others but so far the emphasis seems to be on gaming. Apple has not convinced me to go to their TV or Desktop (iMac) yet.

    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.

    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!
