  • Microsoft to donate $1B in cloud services  [View news story]
    Microsoft still offers massive discounts to education and non-profit organizations. I don't think they plan on changing this anytime soon.

    Why can't a donation just be a donation? Why does the company always have to have an alternative motive?

  • iPad Pro: 2 Major Advantages That Hurt Microsoft's Surface  [View article]
    How is your QuickBooks analogy any different on two different Apple devices? My guess is that it isn't. Your analogy assumes that the application support what your are trying to do. This isn't Windows or OneDrive's fault; it's Intuit's fault. They have said that the solution is to pay them a fee per year to support that functionality.

    Windows (Microsoft) gets blamed for everything. Especially when the problem isn't theirs.

    And apps being optimized for touch would be really useful on a Mac....If they support touch at all.

    That being said. I own both companies so....Buy what you want. Either way, I'm making money!

  • Why Microsoft Also Might Win The Enterprise Hardware Sector  [View article]
    /snarky Apple first needs to have market share for the Surface to take. /snarky

    Okay...snarky comment aside, in the enterprise space there isn't a noticeable market for Apple. I see more Surface machines in use than all Apple products (iPhones excluded) combined.

    I don't see this changing. If Microsoft really wanted to ensure that Apple doesn't get a foothold in the enterprise they would simply need to stop selling Office for Mac.

  • Microsoft: Updating The Windows 10 Investment Thesis  [View article]
    Just in case you aren't aware...Internet Explorer is still there if you want to use it.

    Edge will be ever evolving and certainly needs some key things that are currently missing; chief among them is Extensions.

    Its adoption rate should increase once this functionality is released.

    I love the Reading view of Edge!

    Yes. They're desperate to get people to stop calling them with Windows XP questions. Otherwise, no, they aren't desperate at all. On any front; including Windows Pone.

    Then you will absolutely love the "continuum" feature of Windows Phone 10. You should check out the demos of it on Microsoft.com.

    Impossible. It doesn't automatically install at this point. You need to select it to be installed.

    Your fringe case of Windows 10 causing $500 in damage to your computer is interesting and I'd love to hear more details about what happened.

    Did you happen to call Microsoft support for assistance?

  • Google, Yahoo strike search and advertising deal (updated)  [View news story]
    They will be able to do as they've been doing this for years with Microsoft/Bing.

    Bing had been the exclusive provider of search results for the last 5+ (maybe 10) years. The exclusive agreement ended and the two companies created a new one. Bing does 51% and Google does 49% of search results.

    Guess who does 0% of search results? Yahoo!

    What is likely NOT to be allowed to happen is Google buying Yahoo. I think Microsoft could do it, but they shouldn't want to. Instead, they should let Yahoo go under and take back all of the big spending customer's of there's that Yahoo has under the terms of their agreement.

  • Can Microsoft Really Copy Apple And Throw Its OEMs Under The Bus?  [View article]
    No. I have no faith that "Dell, HP and others can replicate the build quality, drop the bloatware and still underpriced Surface?". Why? The OEMs never have, and the OEMs are the kings of installing the "bloatware" of which you are so concerned.

    If OEMs had been making these types of products with this level of build quality, Microsoft would not have a need to create such a product.

    The Surface line is the result of Microsoft being sick and tired of OEMs releasing crap hardware that customer's find unappealing after spending a massive amount of years trying to convince any one of them to step up to the plate.
