  • Surface 3 And Apple Watch - Red Oceans Vs. Blue Oceans [View article]
    @Matthew and dezee - Both ways are good options. It just depends on what you want to do. This proves the flexibility of the Surface device versus dedicated tablets (iPads) that can't compete when peripheral devices flexibility is brought into the equation.

    The flexibility enables less expensive options (like the wedge keyboard) is you don't want the expense of the Type Cover.

    That's all I was pointing out.

    Thanks for the continued conversation!

    As an owner of Apple stock I too am excited for the earnings report on the 27th.

    I only pointed out because everybody loves to point to the past failures of Microsoft but not the holy house of Apple.

    I am long on both.

    Not sure everyone realizes that, with it's USB port, you can attach ANY external USB Keyboard/Mouse to your Surface device and use it. So....Don't buy the $150 TouchCover is you don't want to. My wife uses the Wedge Keyboard/Mouse combo from MS that was $50.

    It also has the docking station option (like laptops!) that will enable you to connect to multiple monitors and everything you'd need at the corp. level.


    Additionally, unless you are only talking about Surface 3, the Surface Pro 3 can come with an i7 processor. Hardly slow or old.

    Especially when you (Apple) are so near to zero that the main company you compete against (Microsoft) gives you a life line and saves your company.

    @ctman2 - So the Surface like an iPad? But with functionality,a keyboard, and the ability to run any piece of software I need to run? Got it. Thanks. I'll take one! Oh wait, I already have one, and it's amazing.

    "Very few people will or should buy a Surface."

    ...and yet more and more are buying them every day. Sales have increased sharply since the release of the Surface Pro 3 and the Surface 3 offers an opportunity to increase those sales even further by reaching more of the market. It's a great move by Microsoft and I look forward to reading about its success.

  • Wells Fargo upgrades Microsoft, sees bad news priced in [View news story]
    Until about 10 years ago this "A PC on every desk and in every home" was their goal and they set out to achieve it; and for the most part they did. It was plastered on every building, used it marketing documentation, and discussed during sales meetings.
    You're very ignorant if you don't think that Microsoft had a HUGE impact on the expansion of the PC market and associated technology. Microsoft and Apple, from a technology perspective, have had the largest impact over the course of the last 40 years. You can argue the merits of how they obtained their status (Apple stole technology too), but arguing that they had a major impact is short-sighted at best.
    Sure, MS bullied people, a practice they continue to pay for today. But, if you stop and think about it, which I'm sure you won't, Google does the same, if not worse today...

    App argument is crap.

    Especially funny when you realize that Microsoft beat Apple to 2 out 3 of these items.

    A totally valid point. This is the larger battle; ecosystem. Once you are locked into one it is very difficult to get someone to move to another one.

    There have only been two versions of Windows of all Surface machines: Windows RT and Windows 8, 8.1.

    Surface 3 uses FULL Windows. Moving forward there will be no division of Operating system between any Surface device or Windows Phone.

    There is only ONE version of Windows Phone. There isn't a different branch for each vendor like Android. There is symmetry like Apple where there is only one OS for phone (although there are differences and incompatibilities between Apple iOS and OS on their other machines that will (hopefully) no longer be issues with Windows 10).

    If the author was talking about "touch ready" application then that should've been specified. On the one had he states that Windows needs apps and then immediately states that Chromebook has all of the apps because of its browser. This makes your point invalid in this discussion.

    Incorrect. I am on the technical preview and have multiple "local" accounts. Any 'tying' to an e-mail address is designed to facilitate easy access to store and other online purchases; similar to Apple and Google.

    @LambrettaMike - To repeat. You're still wrong.

    @LambrettaMike It runs yesterday's, today's, and tomorrow's Windows software. The internet of things both past, present, and future. What are you even talking about?

    At least you admitted yours. I don't think we'll see the same out of the OP.
