As linked in the article: Google's efforts to monetize its Android user base with deep links between the company's public services and social profiles has resulted in a variety of privacy concerns, including one highlighted by ZDNet blogger Violet Blue earlier this year. The linked article is absolutely a must-read.
Great! Now Google is monetizing "sharing." I wonder how many malicious hackers will use this to spread malware to iOS from the Swiss cheese platform. I wonder if we will see ads when we share. I have been successfully converting friends and family to Apple for years. Thank goodness.
There definitely are issues to resolve.I believe Tallest Skill is correct in speaking about "convergence" of iOS and OS X as OS Xi; i.e. I believe that most of the remaining issues could be resolved within two years. While I am uncertain the two operating systems will actually converge, the two operating systems are undeniably converging in features.Desktop class performance - Check (64-bit architecture, processing power)Desktop class apps - In progress (Apple has...
I was writing about Microsoft not Apple.I agree; however; Microsoft Surface Pro 3 appears to target Apple iPad and Apple MacBook Air as the competition rather than Android OEMs (and former Microsoft OEMs).Microsoft chose to ignore Apple iPad until too late and enabled Apple iWork to dominate productivity on the iOS platform.Microsoft chose to ignore the post-PC age until too and enable Apple iPad to dominate enterprise mobile devices.Apple is; however; a relatively niche...
Most developers don't need to modify their applications for Apple Ax architecture. Most developers are already creating apps for iOS, developers need to be encouraged to develop more feature-rich, desktop-class applications rather than apps that offer a fraction of the features available on OS X. Apple iPad Air 2 appears to have the processing power to perform desktop-class computing.
Sadly, Microsoft appears to not recognize who their competitor is.I was just being fair to Microsoft. Microsoft should be judged by their words and actions not mine.I don't understand the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. I understand why Microsoft created a device. I don't understand why Microsoft created the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. Microsoft is targeting the wrong demographic. The vast majority of consumers appear to desire the tablet.Microsoft should develop products and...
I am the person referring to Microsoft Surface as "a hobby" in reference to Tim Cook's comments about TV. Posting that comment with a comment about the profitability of Microsoft Surface was to suggest that Microsoft Surface isn't a primary source of revenue for Microsoft.Then again, I am not certain any more what the primary source of revenue for Microsoft is supposed to be.Microsoft has refined their comments from a "devices and services" company.According to Satya...
Offering Microsoft the benefit of the doubt. Regardless, most technology reporters believe the Microsoft Surface pro 3 didn't provide any net profit to Microsoft.I believe it is fair to say that Microsoft Surface Pro 3 "continues to be an area of great interest" and "a hobby."
Notably, $908 million revenue reported for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is, by many technology reporters, presumed to be less than the cost of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 business.Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is a poorly implemented solution in an attempt to hold onto Microsoft's tenuous grasp on personal computing as defined in the 1990s while appearing to look forward to the future of computing."... it's still a leap to say this will be a true laptop replacement for most...
