A day AFTER the Microsoft announcement for Windows Phone 8. Probably two different agendas, but interesting that both companies are attempting to preempt any Apple announcement.
I wonder what would happen if they carried an iPhone?
Basically, AT&T sees them in the right to limit FT to shared data plans, even though iPhone users demand a more “open” policy on the usage of their data. It’s actually a pretty complex situation: a user sees their data … Continue reading
Might not hit that 10% mark, but everything else seems to be going as expected.
These are early investors, and most of them not employees. Employees have a bit more time before they can sell their stock, and Mark seems to think that this is just enough time that the company needs to make the … Continue reading
Apple is now backpedaling on a recent initiative to decrease retail staffing and make cuts at some of their more “bloated” international stores. This is the second high-profile acknowledgment of a “mistake” on Apple’s part in recent weeks, with Apple … Continue reading
This would make the Kinect a great solution for applications beyond just gaming — like physical therapy or fitness exercises. The amount of depth is pretty amazing.
Love the URL for the letter — signifies the forward movement this startup company has with the partnership.
Though I expected credits and payments to be a good move to generate revenue, a casino game seems just… shady. Not to mention far from the image of Facebook which “connects people.”
Thom Heins, Blackberry CEO: We don’t have the economy of scale to compete against the guys who crank out 60 handsets a year. To deliver BB10 we may need to look at licensing it to someone who can do this … Continue reading
The Daily is a good idea in principle — as tablet marketshare goes up, so will news media on tablets. The issue is the experience continues to be subpar compared to free alternatives. Slow loading times, laggy page turns, and … Continue reading
It’s Hotmail with a pretty impressive Metro skin on top. This is the beginning of a bigger transition to match Apple’s iCloud offering by making a completely web based solution. So far the start is impressive and hopefully more development … Continue reading
Phil Schiller: Just a year after the incredibly successful introduction of Lion, customers have downloaded Mountain Lion over three million times in just four days, making it our most successful release ever. And by incredibly successful, he means 1 million … Continue reading
And I’m not surprised.
The Safari experience is probably crippled on Windows due to a lack of the Core features in Mac OS.
From the team on Kickstarter: In terms of our schedule, we’re sticking pretty closely to an aggressive timetable we put together at the end of May (remember our first timetable was created before we launched on Kickstarter, when we were … Continue reading
It’s always a pleasure to read his reviews, and that’s largely due to his intense attention to detail. Here are some highlights of things that I found to be “additional” of what most already know about the OS: Coverage of … Continue reading
Nintendo reports Q1 loss overall, but the sales of 3DS consoles is telling: Sales of its 3DS, launched in February last year, more than doubled to 1.86 million from 710,000. Weak demand for its latest console forced Nintendo to slash … Continue reading
Microsoft provides monetization details for developers. In contrast to Apple, the lowest priced apps will cost $1.49. Psychologically, the $.99 price point has always been impulsive. I know many would think it is no big deal to spend “a dollar.” … Continue reading
Newly appointed CEO Marissa Mayer: Companies are all about people and the companies with the best talent win. Joining was an easy decision, because the strength of Yahoo!’s talent and the whole team here is apparent. We will continue to … Continue reading
Aaron Souppouris summarizes Nokia’s Q2 report on the Verge. Nokia remarks that Q3 won’t be much better, either. Yikes.
Marissa has a huge challenge, but she has a lot of experience too. She has been at the helm of many key projects, including News and the unified search bar (she has patents for both). I was most intrigued that … Continue reading
I couldn’t quite put my finger on why Mail was so bad in Windows 8. Luckily, Jon Brodkin has spelled it out succinctly here. It’s just too stripped down to really appreciate your mail. I find myself constantly pulling out my Windows Phone.
Interesting article by Matthew Ingram. Penny Arcade makes sense because of the amount of (fun) incentives they can provide.
I find Geekbench to be the most accurate predictor of products that Apple will release, hence why I will repost it here.
