quote: Unlike Tim Cook, he clearly isn't "getting the job done."
quote: How he "let it" as if he has control over the stock price?
quote: Stock price is determined by the value of future cash flow payments.
quote: You would have very few people complaining "I dont want to have to choose"
quote: I think it's more a case of too much too quickly. Microsoft has really put off the slow-moving traditionalists, which is a big group in this industry.
quote: It's sort of like rearranging a room. If it's your family room you can do it to shake things up and make it more interesting. But when it's your garage and you move around all the tools that you need to get jobs done, it just becomes frustrating. Sure, move the tools to a more efficient spot and then leave them there. Don't keep changing them around because people then have to spend time looking for those tools again. They don't need their garage to look interesting, they just need it to be functional.
quote: We all know this isn't true
quote: MS would have to be dumbasses to do something like put backdoors for the NSA in its OS. If it was ever found out to be true their entire business would be done in a blink of an eye.
quote: Windows Phone (up until *maybe* the current version).
quote: XBox One.
quote: s kind of ironic reading a web tech journalist telling someone they can't speak on a product without owning one personally. Why are we here if not to learn and discuss these things and make informed decisions?

quote: Also I hoped after all these years conversing with you here and in emails, you wouldn't categorize my opinions as just "talking crap".

quote: You can talk all the sh*t you want about Windows Phone.
quote: You misunderstand my intent there. Perhaps I should have qualified it differently, but I was really talking to the utter failure of WP on the market, essentially forever, until *maybe* now. The jury's still out on that.Personally I really don't give a rat's a$s what OS is on a phone. For the *vast* majority of users, there's no difference. Every OS has screens with icons on them. Icons launch apps. Yay. Beyond that, I can't understate how little I care about whatever other "features" there are in a phone OS. I need to be able to make phone calls, text messages, surf around on the internet, and play a couple games.EVERY phone OS does that, and has for at least the past 15 years or so.So no...I'm not saying that there has necessarily been anything "wrong" with WP as a product. I included it in my list because of it's utter failure as a product that people will buy - for whatever reason that is. Personally, I really couldn't care less what OS was on my phone so long as it did the basic things noted above.
