That's still nothing more than regular business though, nothing about it makes them desperate. Calling for some of Apples patents to be invalidated is a regular thing to do, particularly when you read the list of them some of them are questionable as to if they are actually valid or not. Plus basically everyone in the phone business is suing everyone else (except for Microsoft, oddly nobody appear to be suing them). And I still don't get how creating a tablet is desperate?...
How's that desperate? That's just a reaction to the current market, if tablets are becoming popular then make tablets. Apple made a phone when there business was computers and mp3 players, does that make them desperate?There's several awarded to all the companies taking each other to court. I think it would be a bit silly to suggest that there is one clear winner. I think we're just going to have a few years of this until everyone works out who actually owns what. Then...
Anyone else from the UK confused as you can already get Sky Tv on an Xbox! Not exactly a year away, more like its been around for over a year. Plus isn't the big news for Xbox that it looks like its getting apps. Something rumored for Apple tv that never seems to turn up. Unless you want to play games, so not quite everyone.
The payments and sales data sent anything surprising though. Its been on MS's site for months that the first payments will be in feburary, along with details on how you get stats on sales data. This articles basically quoted 2 people who didn't bother to read the process details when they signed up. As for the reports of slow sales, they also sit next to reports of a lack of devices making them meaningless.
It's been out for years and has done nothing. In the same time period (at least in the UK) the Xbox 360 has gained tv content, the Wii/Cable Box's/Sky Box's have all gained BBC iPlayer and BT (a telecoms company) launched a popular set top box with on demand, iPlayer and regular free and subscription tv. What's there to be premature about, Apple may call it a hobby but at the same time there are lots of other company's entering the same market and actually selling.Very...
To be an Apple killer doesn't Apples product first have to be a success! The only way any of these have a change of succeeding is if they actually start to play your regular tv content, until then it's hopeless. Especially when you consider people making traditional set top box's are adding things like iPlayer and cost less than an Apple TV.
Nice idea with the server app store, although MS have already done this with windows. Nice chart showing how much cheaper the OSX server would be, except it's left out the fact Linux would still be cheaper.
Err since when were things ok because you could replace the bit that breaks. That's like saying it would be fine buying a car where the wheels keep breaking because you can just replace them. I tend to think when I spend a few hundred pounds on something that it's going to last a few years.
My favorite part of this article has to be where the acid test is called impartial and written by a Google employee! The fact is the Microsoft tests are valid html5 tests which IE9 passes better than the others. At the same time the valid test written by a Google employee gets a higher pass by Chrome than IE. Doesn't take a genius to work out a companies developers will pass there own tests before others! So none of the browsers are perfect, so what? HTML5 is not...
That's just something all companies ask for in these cases. Nokia also asked for a ban on iPhones being imported. All things considered bit of a blow to Apple, but better for consumers. Apple may have a right to a lot of the technology in the iPhone, but imagine if the keyboard and mouse had a patent that was enforced, or the same with how you drive a car. Whete would the world be if these things had to be different with every manufacturer.
