  • Microsoft Faces A Fundamental Disconnect  [View article]
    P Douglas - I don't see how Windows 10 is going to do very well. For a client operating system to do very well, it needs lots of quality apps.

    Microsoft obviously has run the numbers and has modeled how they can give away Windows 10 on consumer devices with screens 9" or less while maintaining their franchises on PC's with larger screens 10" or larger and DC servers. Microsoft Lumia smart phones and Surface all-in-1 devices are slowly gaining traction along with 3rd party 2-in-1's. Windows 10 will allow for Xbox to finally be a gaming hub and with Surface Hub serving the same purpose in enterprises. Microsoft HaloLens jumps over Google's broken glasses. Windows 10 finally offers a single OS across all PC forms with universal apps for all.

  • Intel: Skylake Is Coming  [View article]
    Great recap of Intel's progress and earnings call remarks. It will be interesting to see how 14nm and SoFIA SKUs are released along with Skylake cores.

  • Intel: Skylake Is Coming  [View article]
    Intel will adjust the speed of their 14-10nm tick tock to match the competition. That does not currently guarantee a 10nm Cannonlake product in 2016. Let's see how Intel proceeds with 14nm and SoFIA before we jump on 10nm.

  • Intel Impresses With Q4 Earnings, Lower 2015 Outlook Dampens Investor Confidence  [View article]
    Intel already announced that gross margins would suffer in Q1 and Q2 of 2015 as they roll out 14nm chips as the yield improves like all of their prior tick tock cycles. This will present a good buying opportunity especially for LEAPS.

  • Microsoft details Windows 10, promises free upgrades  [View news story]
    I can't wait to upgrade mu Asus T100 from W8.1 to W10. I'll then upgrade my Lumia 900 to a Lumia 935. Finally buy a Lenovo or Toshiba i5 W10 all-in-1. Maybe Xmas 2015 I'll buy an Xbox One? One OS on all devices is the only way!

    Why move from W7 when you're hardware is obsolete?

  • Intel's Mobile Device Strategy: The Emperor's New Clothes  [View article]
    Does Intel need 3g/4g on the SoC or just an SoC with a complimentary 3g/4g chip at 14nm? The $6.4 billion question is when does Intel take SoFIA to 22 or 14nm and does it use Broadwell or Silverlake processors. Intel has a whole lot of options, pun intended, now that they have dual tick tock cadence in place.

  • Whither Windows 10?  [View article]
    Great article. It's not all about Apple vs. Android vs. Windows anymore. It's all about allowing consumers and workers to make their choices without making sacrifices in terms of applications and productivity. Microsoft now has smart phones and tablets that are good enough at every price point and an enterprise ecosystem that's unbeatable. Let consumers and workers use whatever apps, cloud services and devices they chose either at home or in the office. I just put a Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter on my Vizio 39" HDMI/USB ports and can use it as a screen from any of my Windows 8.1 devices, it took 3 minutes, 3 clicks and cost $60. That's really cool!

  • Upside Potential For Microsoft And Its Surface Pro Tablets  [View article]
    • The key competitive advantage of the Microsoft Surface is its work productivity and excellent functionality.

    It's not just the Microsoft Surface but all of the all-in-1 and 2-in-1 devices that now make the PC Mobile and attached to the cloud. I was in the Microsoft Store at the mall in Scottsdale, AZ and the PC, smart phone and tablet devices now running Windows 8.1 on 4-40" screens are amazing. Microsoft's Windows 10 should fix the Start Menu complaint and offer one OS on all devices.
