Well Microsoft's IE monopoly has fallen from 95% to LESS THAN 25% (according to W3Schools). And the company's share of mobiles has fallen from ~25% to something like 7% in just a few years. The PC market itself is falling, with significant contraction happening worldwide. Apple is eating into that with Mac OS X while it creates a new market for iOS devices that is hitting it from below. Delivering a tepid product that chases the iPad and does little but confuse Windows...
No, a virus attack is when you browse the web on a Windows PC and your machine becomes unusable because all this crap has installed itself and taken over your computer. The only workaround is installing and maintaining AV software, which takes a hit on performance and RAM. Those kinds of issues are simply not there on Macs. No matter how much you try to suggest that some fake scam app is viral or dangerous or malicious (all it does is try to make you pay for it) the...
Yeah, installing a trojan horse bit of nagware is only an "attack" in the mind of Ed Bott. The ability to load software limited to the current admin user is also not a "dangerous" new development. The user has to be an ADMIN who is PURPOSELY INSTALLING SCARE-WARE from an unknown source. This is an irresponsible headline and lead for AI to be printing. Inaccurate, misleading, sensationalist.
Buying stock in a company is not a "loan." But Microsoft had no choice, and Apple had no reason to send thank you notes, because otherwise Apple would have sued Microsoft over its egregious theft of QuickTime code and a variety of other legal issues that would have cost it hundreds of millions of dollars (without the ability to sell stock later at a profit). Apple and Microsoft both benefitted from the arrangement, no need to pat Bill Gates on the back for covering his...
I think if you put down your Hysterical Thesaurus for a moment, you might be able to piece together the idea that for a phone to report your location, it needs to be able to calculate it. The purpose of the location database is to find the current location instantly. There is nothing controversial about Apple storing location data in a cache, and the article makes no effort to "excuse" such a non-problem. If you are afraid of technology, live in a cave. Also, be sure not...
No, Google is trying to get everyone on from the start, which is why it hasn't launched yet. Apple knew that wasn't possible when it trail-blazed the digital movie market years ago. That is a contrast, not "the same thing."
In all fairness, what does this article say that is a) about Android or b) unflattering to Android? I think the point, if you have basic reading skills, is that Gartner's predictions are not any sort of effort at scientific modeling, but rather just numbers to back up Microsoft, with Android thrown in to capture headlines. Attacking the author of the article, particularly with such a baseless accusation that has nothing to do with the article, just makes you look like an...
Well for starters, because "articles like this" are on AppleInsider, and not WindowsWorld. Second, XNA is not relevant to mobile gaming, and the premier App Store is run by Apple, not Microsoft. XBLA might predate the App Store, but only for gamer tags and videos. Microsoft added Games on Demand in late 2009, well over a year after the iPhone App Store hit pay dirt (and years after Apple began marketing iPod games in 2006). Xbox indie games launched in late 2008, also...
It's a flop when you develop a product chasing the taillights of last year's product, end up blindsided by this year's product, and end up losing money. Look at MMI earnings: already back in the red after a brief year of profitability when it didn't have to compete against Apple, segregated briefly by Verizon's wing. The Xoom flopped, the Asterix flopped, Motorola is now in big trouble. That's why they're scrambling to come up with their own proprietary blend of Linux....
Going full circle, I think DED has used "flummoxed" to describe Apple's competitors pretty regularly going back to 2007.http://www.google.com/search?q=site:....com+flummoxed
