    Aleksander Hummel - They are progressing at a snails pace, much slower than the competition.

    Have you really taken a look at Windows 10?

  • Microsoft: How Windows Will Become Obsolete [View article]
    hunter012 - So you are saying that you want to risk messing up a reliable PHONE and communication device by hooking it up to monitors, keyboards, and other stuff.

    Having one Smart Unit of Computing (SUC - pun intended) that can be handled like a smart phone and wirelessly charges, connects to peripherals like keyboards, mouses and screens, TV's too, is not going to mess anything up. I already do it with my Asus T100 W8.1 all-in-one with my HDTV monitor. How can connecting to a keyboard, mouse and screen mess anything up? Ultimately it will connect to that stupid touch screen un your car and eliminate that extra $1,000-4,000 entertainment waste.

    I thought only Apple sold $3,000 workstations?

    P. Douglas,

    Windows is still selling 300 million licenses a year even with Windows 10 release in 5 days. Microsoft can upgrade the 1.5 billion classic Windows users and monetize Android and iOS users with Office and other cross platform apps. Nadella is doing the right thing in getting people to user Microsoft's cloud apps which could eventually lead to using Windows devices.

    KenG3315,

    It seems like traditional OEMs (Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, etc.) are doing quite well making all-in-1s, desktops and servers for enterprises and professionals. Lumia and Surface are not "me too" products and will ultimately generate the normal hardware 40% margins plus software license that's build in.

    You DO NOT have to pay to upgrade! Win7 did not support touch screens!

    I think a Lumia 950 or Surface 960 smart phones running Windows 10 with Continuum that connects wirelessly to keyboards and full size screen can replace notebooks for a vast majority of users. Those smart phones will need 2-4Gb of memory and 32-64Gb of storage expandable to 128-256Gb with microSD slot. You can then have your PC, smart phone and tablet wherever you go with or without 14-20" screen and full size keyboards. I still want a notebook with 16-17" screen as a home device sync'ed with One Drive in case I lose that smart phone.

  • Apple: Samsung's Glancing Blow [View article]
    Well just maybe the smart phone ASP is starting to fall faster the Apple can release last years innovations by other makers. It seems like Qualcomm is a predictor of things to come. I believe revenue = units times ASP? So both units and ASP are very germane to a discussion more then totals revenue.

  • Crisis Watch - Where Lightning Could Strike Next [View article]
    Central banks are printing money as fast as they can buy ink and paper. The FED will raise rates 0.25-0.50% and they'll reach 1.50% by 2017. They say the USD is strong. Relative to what? I wonder if Saudi's will cut production to make room for Iran's supply? Isn't socialism fun!

  • There's Nothing Wrong With Intel's Inventory Accounting [View article]
    Vlad, agree, looking at notebooks with touch screen, 5th gen i5 and dual drives 500Gb HDD + 128Gb SSD with W10 installed which are now available for preorder at $300-400 discounts. I might just see of MS store will sell a USB drive loaded with W10 for upgrading older notebook once I'm ready.
