  • 3 Reasons Intel Is A More Compelling Investment Than Taiwan Semiconductor [View article]
    Fairer comparison would be Intel vs. Qualcomm. Intel's more likely to break into mobile chips then Qualcomm will break into PC or servers.

  • Microsoft given 20 days to respond to Chinese investigation [View news story]
    We're going to see more cyber and financial warfare as the eastern economies challenged the west. The US use of economic sanctions has set the trend and it will be followed by all others. The EU and US have established "international" law according to their cultural and economic traditions which may not be in the best interests of emerging economies. Yes, Microsoft has been ripped off by software piracy but the whole system of intellectual property rights greatly favors established nations. I can't imagine how amused the Chinese are with such patents as the multi-touch user interface that governs all touch screen devices.

    W7 + W8.1 = W9 withdrawing support for W7 is a great refresh move so 14nm Wintel can displace iPads and other old notebooks.

  • How To Survive A Secular Stagnation [View article]
    Economic growth will be limited to population growth plus inflation. Aging population in western cultures will be the additional drag on growth. We'll most likely get a good dose of stagflation once the FED realizes it's out of ammunition. There's actually nothing wrong with 2% growth and 4% interest rates. However greedy capitalists and investors are going to lobby with all they got for 4% growth even if it means more bubbles or even wars. After all there's a huge percentage of US middle class of defense welfare.

  • Threshold (Windows 9) Expected: How Much Is A Free Operating System Worth? [View article]
    Windows 9, aka Windows 8.3, should fix the one problem Windows 8 had, if it isn't broke don't fix it. That applies to the Charms, Start Menu and default boot to desktop. Otherwise W8 is faster then W7 and is great for all-in-1 and 2-in-1 devices. I really like having a singles on my notebook, smart phone and 2-in-1.

    The bigger behind the screen work on making Windows 9 the next step to a single client OS for all PC forms and screen size is a huge advantage. Consumer licensing is only 20-25% of Microsoft's revenue but it complements the Commercial Licensing which is 60% and is a huge driver of Devices and Services.

  • Xiaomi: Copied Apple's DNA? [View article]
    Great article but Apple doesn't have a chance in hades of beating Xiaomi in China legally or technically. The Chinese are starting to flex their muscles. They are not going to allow their citizenry and economy to be duped or hijacked by western capitalists. China's AML, anti-monopoly law, is designed so that no single entity can corner a market with overpriced good and services. China's has already told it's carriers to eliminate $3.9 billion in device subsidies. Apple and all other high priced mobile device makers have been put on notice. The automotive industry have been put on notice along with high tech enterprises like Cisco, IBM, Microsoft and Oracle. Business in China will NOT be business as usual so says the PRC.
