I've been thinking the same. Personally I don't think they're the PC replacements some were thinking. I see them as a supplemental device rather than something I'd be happy using all the time. Since the category is no longer new and therefor "cool", and they may no longer be widely perceived as preferable to a typical laptop I'm not particularly surprised that sales might be slowing.
Looking at Ballmer I doubt he's alive in 20 years.And I agree with you. The size of your bankroll has never been a good indication of your worth as a person. Sadly a lot of folks seem to think money does make them a smarter and more valuable human being than those less-well-off. I've seen a lot of posters even here denegrate others that have less in the way of financial resources than they do, believing themselves to be "more worthy". I'm sure you've seem those posts too.
I wish we could all have his nightmares then."According to U.S. Securities and Exchange (SEC) documents, Ballmer owns more than 333 million shares in Microsoft. At Monday's closing price of $44.83, those shares were valued at $14.9 billion. On the day before Ballmer stepped aside, Microsoft's share price was $36.48, putting his portfolio's worth at just over $12.1 billion. Because of the 23% increase in share value since Feb. 3, Ballmer's Microsoft holdings have...
I don't know that it's the problem you imagine it to be. Google Now (and Microsoft Cortana too I think) includes off-line voice recognition and the ability to do perform some searches and find some information by voice alone and without an internet connection. At least with Google Android it works with hardware much less stellar than what Apple uses.
Without Gene being a bit more detailed it's impossible to know how reliable and repeatable the testing was. Siri could actually be returning even more dependable results than Google Now ( which would not be totally unexpected IMHO) but you can't tell from the limited information provided here. FWIW that's just what Munster found back in 2012 and again in December last year, Siri offering better or at least equivalent results to Google Now. If the roles were reversed in...
Must be headed for a real Apple product since Sammy has filed a whole lotta patent applications for similar functionality in the past year. https://www.google.com/search?tbo=p&tbm=pts&hl=en&q=wearable+electronic+gesture&num=10&qscrl=1&gws_rd=ssl
I think Microsoft's Cortana also offers some offline processing too.EDIT:http://www.tomshardware.com/news/microsoft-cortana-unique-features,26506.html
Funny how you demand proof of harm now when you normally haven't when we've discussed it before No harm no foul right?
t's pretty common when discussing malware, security holes or other threats affecting any particular OS to talk about the theoretical possibility of user harm whether any actual harm has occurred or not. You know how it works.
You're off by a few as it's actually about 18% but still a valid point. Google does not have 100% control of the OS and all hardware running it, unlike Apple. In fact if Apple were to license iOS they'd likely suffer similar "fragmentation" . Apple is smart not to do so IMO.https://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html
