  • Microsoft: Windows 10 And Edge Browser Are Very Advertiser-Friendly [View article]
    Glen - The problem for Microsoft is mobile. I am also convinced that Google will be able to capture over 10% market share of new laptops sold within 3 years.

    Time will tell but I sure think MS's Windows Phone is going to start catching fire once the new Lumia 940/950's are announced with W10 and all of the prior W10 compatible Lumia's are upgraded. In 2016 we'll see Intel's Atom x3 LTE with native W10 Continuum support which means anyone can have a truly mobile PC and dock with any keyboard and large screen anytime anywhere.

    Yes, it's fun playing the what if and only if games.

  • Intel Plans On 5G: Perhaps They Have A Viable Strategy For Mobile [View article]
    Who cares if Intel's following Qualcomm as long as they're successful in mobile SoC's and eventually take market share from all ARM SoC's. It's not some kind of macho sporting event.

    So you should short them by selling naked CALLS like Jan 2017 $30 for $2.60!

  • Micron +3.9%; dealReporter states Tsinghua partnership possible [View news story]
    hughmike - I really don't see what Tsinghua has to offer micron.

    Same thing Tsinghua has to offer Intel, friendly Chinese business relationships and access to $100 billion Chinese semi investments. Never ever underestimate the impact of China's economy becoming larger the US in the near future.

  • Intel gains after Northland upgrades, Canaccord talks up server CPU growth [View news story]
    I'd say $32-34 for Jan 2016 and $36-38 for Jan 2017 is about right but those could be really conservative if we get Windows 10 refresh going with lower Skylake SKU's and server refresh including 3DXP and FPGA innovations.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: To Hike Or Not To Hike? [View article]
    I can't really figure out which is dumber, the fear of the FED raising rates or the notion that China's economy is going to tank? China's going to use their $5 trillion in currency reserves and TBills to buy their own stocks and print yuan while their market goes down to a new normal. This is all about the WS media and hedge funds creating volatility so they can buy low and sell high or short high and buy lower. The average US investors are idiots. A recent Fidelity article stated tree strategies for a falling market; 1) sit tight, 2) rebalance you allocations and 3) buy an annuity. Buy an annuity? Give me a break!

  • China slowdown hits Asian smartphone makers/suppliers [View news story]
    Smart phones are picking up where PC's are leaving off with falling ASP and market saturation. Sure, there'll be 1 billion a year replacement rate as consumers upgrade but it'll mostly be for $200 devices. The all-in-1 PC's has now shown that the next step for smart phones is going to be a mobile PC. That plays right into Wintel's hands.

  • Intel Plans On 5G: Perhaps They Have A Viable Strategy For Mobile [View article]
    Good article on a somewhat boring long term objective. Intel needs Atom x3 LTE at 14nm for mobile so they can demonstrate that a Microsoft Surface phone running Windows 10 and Continuum is the next PC. The soon to be announced Lumia 950 with QCOM 810 requires an ugly peripheral to support W10 Continuum. Intel's Atom will support all W10 features and functions natively. I know, WP only has 3% market share but it is innovating with microSD, wireless charging, removable battery, single OS on all devices and soon to be truly mobile PC.

    Jbitzerjr - You can upgrade with a non legitimate copy!

    Yes but it stores that fact, license key. MAC addr, etc., in the Azure Cloud and water marks your screen and by doing so your accepting the terms of an illegal update. Next up, MS can turn off updates at their prerogative!

    vlaz - So how does this stop piracy?

    Windows 10 stores all license keys in the Azure Cloud and that's going to MS software piracy increasingly difficult. They'll be some push back by hackers and thieves but they're just SOL.
