    You're in luck then, the new upgraded Kinect is far from a piece of junk.

  • Microsoft And The Mulally Myths [View article]
    Funny how you included the Surface 2 and Xbox One under the "proven track record of fails" when the Surface 2 won't be released for another week and the Xbox One for another month. Please share your crystal ball with us, or better yet, do us a favor and short MSFT.

  • "Our number one thing is supplying products to consumers," says Steve Ballmer (MSFT) in his latest interview. To justify his stance, Ballmer notes 65% of PC sales and 75% of Office usage involves consumers. BI's Jay Yarow doesn't like what he's hearing, given the pace at which consumer PC sales are being cannibalized. One could also point out Windows/Office ASPs are higher for enterprises, and that Microsoft's Server & Tools unit is enterprise-focused. Asked whether he's pleased with Surface sales, Ballmer would only say he's "super-glad [Microsoft] did Surface." [View news story]
    Let me fix that for you - "There is no reason for ME to pay for office"

  • Microsoft And The Infinite Monkey Theorem Of R&D Spending [View article]
    We have to keep in mind that Microsoft R&D works on multiple horizons concurrently. Who knows what the true distribution of funding really is. The lack of innovation in these past horizons doesn't necessary imply that funding is being misused, it's is quite possible that they are investing a disproportionate amount on further horizons, say 2018, rather than 2013.

  • Google (GOOG): Q4 EPS of $10.65 beats by $0.13. Revenue (exc. traffic acquisition costs) of $11.34B (+39% Y/Y, boosted by Motorola) misses by $1.12B. Shares +3% AH. (PR[View news story]
    Roughly but keep in mind that the ad business usually shines brighter in Q4 so the 4x heuristic is likely an optimistic approximation in this case.

  • 4 Reasons Windows 8 Will End Apple's Market Share Growth - And Why Apple Shouldn't Care [View article]
    You are displaying the similar symptoms to those brainwashed by the old "I'm a PC, and I'm a Mac" ads. I suggest you start thinking critically to develop your own opinion and not let all the propaganda feed it to you.

  • Nokia (NOK +4.7%) has cracked the $4 barrier today. Possibly helping is a Bloomberg report that HTC has shelved plans for a large-screen Windows Phone due to the fact WP8 doesn't currently support 1080p displays. HTC recently launched the Droid DNA, an Android phone with a 5" 1080p display. [View news story]
    Yup, phones nowadays are way too heavy with those large fancy screens, big batteries, and high powered cameras.

  • The Next CEO Of Microsoft Suddenly No Longer Works At Microsoft [View article]
    Oh that's right, screw deadly diseases. Who the hell needs a cure for malaria anyway (other than the hundreds of thousands of people it kills every year). His money will be better spent on us successful people, and hey just maybe some of those profits will also trickle down to the poor. It's a win-win!

  • A Fresh Look At Apple [View article]
    Have you not seen Windows 8? Or the recent windows phone revamp? I would argue that these changes are more drastic and innovative than adding a new row of icons while increasing the screen size.

  • Windows 8 Is No Apple iPhone Killer [View article]
    1) Please, the weight is a non-issue. An extra 3/20 of a pound isn't going to all of the sudden break anybody's wrists, and imo it's well worth the extra screen real estate.

    2) Nokia wants to stay the hell away from Android, with good reason too, because Apple can sue them into oblivion if they do decide to pursue that market.
