  • Microsoft: No Longer A 'Boring' Investment [View article]
    "Microsoft doesn't create its own products, but rather, it outsources to experts. Even their extremely popular Xbox was outsourced to Flextronics. The unique risk posed by outsourcing is that the success of its Windows 8 release is limited to the functionality of the hardware it runs on."

    Wrong. Microsoft doesn't outsource it's software products and it creates, designs and patents all of it's products but outsources the manufacturing like all of branded products from the likes of Apple, Dell and others. This is not a disadvantage but a huge advantage allowing Microsoft to conserve capital resources while letting 3rd parties efficiently perfrom the manufacturing processes.

    So true PARC did so much basic research that they never got real credit for while only those that commercialize it get the accolades. This whole Applemania and Microsoft's dead money things gets a little boring. Oh well, this too shall pass. I knew if I mentioned the PARC GUI we go into all that Apple vs. Microsoft hysteria all over again.

  • Statoil May Be One Of The Better Places To Put Your Money [View article]
    Why not buy now and get the $1.12 dividend and you really get it at 24.62? If it goes lower after x-dividend just buy more and wait for it to go back to $27-28.

    Why is everything Microsoft does always assumed to be in competition with Apple. Microsoft's #1 competitor right now is Google and it's also Apple's and Nokia's #1 competitor. Microsoft wants to nullify Google's socialistic goals of using advertising revenue to propagate software virus like Android. Apple has similar concerns. Apple's for retail consumers that want to part of technology be can't use Microsoft products. Microsoft's for technology consumers that use such products in their consuming and working lives. Microsoft's business model is to sell software to all hardware device makers so that both products can be used to automate and increase business productivity. Apple's business model is to combine off-the-shelf components in a proprietary manner offering greater consumer designs and service. Those two business models are threaten by Google's socialism of software using advertising revenue from invading consumers privacy.

  • Will A $265 Million Sale Put Nokia On Track? [View article]
    May 8, 2012 NEW ORLEANS—The Nokia Lumia 900 is winning over AT&T sales people, Nokia's U.S. president Chris Weber said Tuesday, but he wouldn't commit to trying to claim any new territory soon. After all, they're selling Lumias faster than they can make them. "Demand has been outstripping supply for the first couple of weeks, and we've been working hard to rectify that," he said. "The demand for cyan [phones] is significantly outpacing supply. When you give people something different from a design perspective—colors, etc. —it really stands out, and consumers want that."

    Stay tuned and watch Steven Sinofsky fix Microsoft's touch based OS like he did Office and Windows 7. He'll be Microsoft's next CEO.

    There's a lot more to innovation than using industrial engineering so that an interface can allow dumb animals to easily use sophisticated technology and consume it to play silly apps and games . AT&T invented Unix, GE invented the transistor, IBM the modern mainframe, Motorola and Intel commoditized the processor chip and Microsoft allowed millions of businesses to automated and increase productivity. Apple's done well building a cult following while many others have done lots of the heavy lifting.

    Microsoft doesn't care about the B&N Nook. Microsoft will have a B&N Nook app in the Windows 8 Marketplace by October 2012 and one in the Windows Phone Marketplace sooner. There's already 12 tablet device makers lined up to release tablets in every color and size imaginable with ARM and Intel Inside. The WP7 Metro UI works. It's fast and fun to use and the tablet market is about to get a dose of reality. Microsoft's not going after Apple. Microsoft;s going after the software socialists at Google and Apple's cheering for Microsoft. Nokia wins if Microsoft wins and vice versa.

  • Wide-Moat Intel's Opportunities Outweigh Its Threats [View article]
    Yep, the ARMH and QCOM investing crowd can't wait for W8 and WP8 with NVDA and QCOM inside but I can't wait for NOK to make phones and tablets with Intel Inside in 2-3 years. But first we'll get Nokia Fluid devices with WP8 and W8.
