It's got to be tough - to be a company stuck holding up a big portion of the enterprise IT market, unable to change even if they wanted to.  MS can't change how they do things because they have created this monster that is enterprise IT - those people working directly in EIT and the multitude of businesses built specifically around servicing this market will not change.  There is too much at stake for all the stakeholders in EIT.   It's why IT departments fought the use...
I'm betting that Google wanted Tony, not Nest or Protect.  Sure, the connected home will at some point in the future be meaningful dollars-wise for lots of businesses, but a thermometer and smoke detector (at the very high end of the market) are not likely to drive enough volume to make it worth $3B.
I prefer my Seiko Arctura Automatic - no batteries, no winding, no plugging it in. It tells the time and date. I wear it because it's a great looking piece of jewelry and it functions as it's supposed to. I think that a lot of people wear watches for exactly the same reason. It's not just a functional thing - it's an accessory like clothing or other jewelry is. I'm sure there are people who just want function in a watch, but I don't see the smart watch as being the...
What sets Apple apart from Samsung (there are lots of things of course) is that Apple is great at marketing the user experience with any particular product.  Just making a big (or small) tablet isn't ground-breaking.  Figuring out how the consumer uses it is where Apple really shines.     It also doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that a tablet line might be comprised of a small (phablet), medium and large format offering.  They might all do the same basic...
The argument that people make about building a comparable PC to the Mac Pro is flawed because no normal business, say a graphics or video production company is going to be buying parts to assemble a PC version - in hopes of saving some money (or in this case more likely spending more).   I understand the comparison is being made to prove a point - that Apple doesn't have an "Apple tax" when you make direct comparisons.  So if anyone wants to compare pricing - go to the...
I'm guessing the ad was created by an agency who, undoubtably, use Macs. Perhaps as their own poke at MS? Regardless, this is one of those things that should not have gotten past all the people who must have had their names on check boxes for reviewing the ad. DED should be sending this piece along to a few of the major news outlets - would be funny to see how MS responds.
My guess is they don't want people seeing just how few iPad mini retina's they have in stock when they hit the stores.  That would be fodder for the competition.
Although I'm really tempted to get a new iPad Air, with the weight and form factor the biggest reasons why I want one, the battery life is what is pushing me to a new MacBook Air instead. To get 12 hours on an mba where I can not only be consuming info, but more easily generating it, seems like a no-brainer to me right now. I get it's a completely different thing, but given I have an ipad 4 and a 2011 13" mba (that only sees 4-5 hours of battery life), the mba looks to be...
I'm not sure how the problem could be with typing text, given the only letters close to the edge are Q and P.  I'm sure there are apps where buttons could be in problematic areas, but I've seen no issues on my 5s.  Even swiping on web pages to go back and forth show no issues for me, where you have to start at the very edge of the screen.
I'm quite sure they're not working hard at it - it just comes naturally to so many at MS. I wonder if it hurts to work there - actual physical pain, not just the mental anguish I imagine many face.
