  • Microsoft: Putting Windows 10 Inside Android Phones Could Seriously Hurt Google [View article]
    I don't the regular users to change OS on their phones. A ROM like this one should make it easy for manufacturers to add a windows phone to their catalogue. Same hardware, only different software and perhaps a higher margin due to a market with less competition.

    As long as it is easy to disable the card and the amount that can be stolen is limited, the risk is acceptable. A smart phone can also be stolen or lost, although fingerprint verification makes stolen iPhones useless. They may also run out of battery.

    Why use a mobile phone when it is easier to use a NFC card !

    In Norway (and probably elsewhere in Europe) banks are issuing credit card/debit cards with NFC and new pay terminals are NFC-enabled.
    Maximum transaction without PIN code is 200 Norwegian crones (about 30 - 35 USD) and a PIN code has to be entered every week or whenever 1000 crones are used (175 USD).

    As long as a mobile phone is more complicated than a card, for both store and user, the mobile phone will loose.

  • Update: Earnings Decline For Ford But The Long-Term Prospects Remain Bright [View article]
    I agree with the idea that a company that sells mediocre products is mediocre investment.
    But look at the future of Ford. In Europe they have launched a new Mondeo, a new Focus and new Transits in all sizes and they all appear to at top in their class. I have postponed a new car purchase, and are buying shares in Ford while waiting for the new Mondeo to appear in stores.

    But, I have to try it properly before buying the car.

    According to the document Opel is up 6.8% and Chevrolet is Down 80% !. This is probably because Chevrolet has been discontinued in Europe.
