I don't really like any of Googles products, don't even use the search engine. But I dont disagree with the quote of what he said. Tech companies should invest in a variety of stuff. What they make may not come to anything but there's a bigger picture of what it can lead to. I don't like android but there's elements that are now in ios. A company releasing there ideas to the world gives the opportunity for someone else to build in it. Internal projects are great for...
Don't get me wrong I think he's doing a fine job. But in the same way Tim Cooks been running apple did a bit of time now and the apple watch is really the first product that you can truly give him the credit for. A bit of time needs to pass before we see what Satya has initiated. Things like the band mention in there release that they started 5 years ago, and that's just how long some proudest cycles are.Also were shouldn't forget Microsoft's a big company. A lot of these...
There's no way they started this and delivered in under a year. It would have been started under Ballmer.In fact since Satya took over were haven't seen any change to the direction Ballmer started. The strategy has been renamed from devices and services to mobile first cloud first, but it ultimately is all the same thing. There still continuing with hardware, azure and being on every platform. The only real change is closing some of the xbox stuff and getting rid of a load...
They might just have not done that bit yet. The fashion seems to be release then patch at the moment.It also went on sale which brings into question if it really did leak or was just released in a really weird way.
Well Microsoft's version of Apple pay has been around for a year or two. You can apparently pay for stuff with this too although I'm not sure what system it's using. Got a source for all that? Cortana makes sense and you'd expect to be Windows only. Text messages are Android and Windows. Other than that everything else in on all platforms. I think Microsoft realized a long time ago that you have to be on all platforms otherwise people are going to drop you. e.g. People use...
I still love the designs Apple comes out with (except for the ugly lines on the back of the iphone 6), but I do wish they wouldn't talk so much bs in interviews. Didn't want to do a big phone before they got it right. What exactly made this one right and previous attempts not right? Aside from a lot nicer materials, the new iphone isn't far off the first iphone. The ui's still the same. Comments about copying were also great a few years ago, but what has anyone really...
I'm not to clear if Apple pay is the existing nfc payment tech or if its actually something new and requires new terminals. Different articles indicate different things. So far despite being around for a few years now, nfc payments don't seem that popular. Most places in the UK support it, but you hear more incidents of cards being miss read when people didn't intend to use it than you see people actually using it. So if Apple made something new I can absolutely...
Your right, I thought as the article was talking about how the figures were revised the two charts were the before and after rather than this year and last year. So my figures were wrong. Either way though the point still remains there reporting estimates which are ultimately estimates. Later when more data is learned they update the figures. Mac sales were updated to be 4.577 million and Apple say they were 4.6 million. I don't know what decimal place apple reports there...
I sometimes do a lot of work on my phone, I wouldn't suggest they start including phones in the figures. Isn't that a good reason to keep them separate. If they were included would there ever have been reports to suggest the PC market had been in decline due to the success of tablets. It would just be that the PC market was booming due to people buying multiple form factors. Until you can walk into an average offers and see 10 - 20% of people working solely on a tablet...
Not entirely sure what the point of this is. According to those figures they also lowballed Lenovo and HP by an even bigger margin.   Apple was out by 200 thousand, Lenovo by 1571 thousand and 737 thousand. Compared to those 2 Apple being out by 200 thousand is actually quite close.   All it really shows is estimates and basically just that and estimate and if 2 companies are close they could switch position.   The stuff about iPads not being counted is also just...
