Microsoft teases something 'flat' and 'touchy' (Engadget)

Aug 3rd 2010 2:32PM Actually you can see at the top left corner of the image that the thing is not very wide (there is a tiny sliver of white up there)... so it's probably a multi-touch pad/mouse in one...

Aug 3rd 2010 2:30PM It's a flat keyboard with no *real* keys! Just totally multi-touch!

CE-oh no he didn't!: Microsoft's Kevin Turner says iPhone 4 might be Apple's Vista (Engadget)

Jul 14th 2010 2:15PM @SExpress I mean in relation to the comparison of the 2 companies... Exxon a huge company but that doesn't allow you to compare them to Apple of MS... they are in a different business... just because MS and Apple are tech companies doesn't mean they are directly in competition with each other and every product or move has to be compared to Apple's X product or move...

And dont get me wrong... I love Apple's products... I have an iPhone and and iMac at home... I'm not slamming Apple here... I am just commenting on the fact that they are always put up against each other all the time...

Jul 14th 2010 1:58PM @SExpress The size of the companies isn't important... they don't directly compete with each other in the same spaces... Apple isn't taking away PC OS share or Office Productivity share from MS anytime soon with OSX or the iPhone/iPad... aside from the XBOX MS doesn't make hardware... they are a software company... Apple is a consumer electronics company that makes software for their own products... MS can afford to fail in the smartphone market because it doen't effect their core business...

Why do you think their are rumblings of a version of office coming to the Iphone/ipad? MS knows that pushing its core business to other platforms keeps it core business strong.

Google and MS are more direct competitors to each other as their product lines overlap alot more (email services, OS, search, office productivity, etc)

Jul 14th 2010 1:37PM I find it funny that so many people directly compare Microsoft to Apple... Microsoft is a GIGANTIC corp that's main products are run by 80% of the people and businesses in the entire world... Apple has a tiny market share in the PC world and have a large market share in consumer electronics... sure MS has released consumer electronics products which had some success and some failures but it's a tiny fraction of the MS business where as it is almost Apples entire business... MS can afford to fail in the mobile phone space... lets face it KIN sucked and should never have been put out...

I can certaily see the phone wars working out in MS of Google's favor in the long run... the same way they did in the PC market... Apple used to dominate but was focused on a closed system... PCs came along and just took over in shere numbers... over time, if Apple doesn't change their model, the same thing might happen with the iPhone... its already starting with Google and Android and MS has a play coming that could effect Apple the same way...

AT&T handing out free 3G MicroCells to loyal customers? (update: it's a market trial) (Engadget)

Microsoft: Worried about the App Store? (TUAW.com)

Oct 21st 2009 10:21AM Yeah but your missing one key point about Windows Mobile... Anyone can put software up on a website for people to download and install... The MS App Store will not be THE ONLY PLACE where you can get WinMo software.

So if you isolate the APP STORE to just good quality apps then you greatly reduce the amount of crap out there... I hate looking though the app store on my iPhone... its just a jumble of crap... sure there are good things out there but the only way to find out about them is website reviews, etc... the app store is a good place to go download something you know about... but forget trying to look for something out there... if it isn't in the top 50 in a category your wasting your time.

Imagine if all the fart apps and stupid things were still available but just on a website somewhere... and all that clutter and crap was out of the app store... it would be MUCH more useful.

Coming Soon: A 3rd party Hulu plugin for Windows Media Center (Download Squad)

Feb 10th 2009 11:33PM Hey guys... I'm the one developing this app... and yes... its going to be FREE! I really started developing this because I wanted to be able to watch Hulu in VMC!

Haven't done any testing on extenders yet but I will deal with that once I get it up and fully working in plain old media center!

The Google Docs Divide (Download Squad)

Dec 21st 2007 3:05PM Lets not forget... The folks around here don't like Microsoft... ANYTHING to them is better than something Microsoft has made... even a CRAPPY online office package like Google Docs.
