  • Google reportedly charging Android OEMs for apps/services [View news story]
    Looks like you are from China, so I can't comment on Chinese Bing. In North America Bing is pretty good now.

  • Intel Earnings Were A Complete Dud [View article]
    @trader: can't always win games by home runs. Singles and the ground works win games too.

  • Weak Canadian dollar may provide catalyst for three big energy names [View news story]
    Agreed, unless one is sophisticated enough for some complex arbitrage. Not a game for 99% of retail investors.

  • Vringo Wins Key Victory Over Google Revenue; Awaits 7% Royalty Decision [View article]
    VRNG is a trading stock, not an investment stock. On balance though, it has a good risk / reward ratio.

  • Vringo Wins Key Victory Over Google Revenue; Awaits 7% Royalty Decision [View article]
    I agree with you. Having said that, what I've found interesting is the wording of the ruling, where the judge references other previous cases for his reasoning. Maybe I read too much into it, but there are some hints about his thought processes, and they are positive for VRNG.

  • Vringo jumps following favorable damages ruling [View news story]
    Without a ruling on the alleged work-around, it's impossible for any settlement. Having said that, it seems like the court is starting to make rulings on this case and the work-around issue may get addressed soon.

  • Vringo jumps following favorable damages ruling [View news story]
    After the appeal. Both the parties agreed to that. Not sure why from VRNG's perspective.

  • Google's search algorithm overhaul could spell trouble for Vringo [View news story]
    I can see the Knowledge Graph augment the Lang invention, but it would be crazy to totally remove the Lang mechanism. It cannot be worked around without severely affecting the ranking.

  • AllThingsD: Ford's Mulally now heads list of Ballmer replacements [View news story]
    The biggest complaint we have heard about MS is NOT their ability to innovate, but their internal politics and in-house fighting. They have (or had) a lot of technically bright people. Sure, they didn't do a good job, but they did "invent" the tablets, the smart phone, the smart watch, etc. Mullaly's job is not to innovate per se, but just remove the road-block for the people underneath to innovate. I don't see him any worse than a Ellison or a Cook at all. Either him or Elop would be fine. Elop has more potential, but riskier. With Mullaly, I can't see MSFT went too off the rail.

  • Apple Event Will Send The Bears Into Hibernation [View article]
    MWinMD, you said it yourself, it's only "potential". It is like NOK / Win Phone added a potential 700 millions customers last year. The market is far from being efficient, but it has spoken.

    @William, all you had to do is check AAPL historical price when the iPhone 5 was announced. Enough said.

  • Microsoft Doubles Down On Nokia Mobile: Now What? [View article]
    sonofcaan, i disagree. If you work in large IT enterprise like myself, you will realize that the enterprise support from Android / iPhone is pretty lacking (and current Windows Phone as well). There is definitely an opportunity there. Many pundits think the Lumia move by MS means they are focusing on the "devices" space and ignoring the enterprise space. But who says MS can't make Windows Phone both an enterprise phone and a consumer phone? I.e. a BB-like phone for the enterprise, and which the end users don't feel embarrassed when carrying it around after work?

  • Microsoft Doubles Down On Nokia Mobile: Now What? [View article]
    Humble, nobody is building a Windows phone now anyway, so what's lost?

    (I do realize the OME's do build Windows Phone, but it is insignificant for their top / bottom line).

  • Microsoft buying Nokia's Devices & Services unit, licensing IP for $7.17B [View news story]
    The tricky part about the Surface is MSFT directly competes against their OEM, they can't cut prices aggressively. Those OEM's also produce the PC, the servers, the laptops, etc. - MSFT bread-and-butter. With the phone, the situation is completely different. I'm quite sure no OEM is making any money with the Windows phone. MSFT is going alone in this battle.
