    Kill The Cows - Share The Beef

    Microsoft 2015

     

    (haha ok no ..but something LIKE that)

    everyone knows its innovators dilemma - your founder spoke of it a hundred times in interviews (i read it because of that)

    we know...you know... everyone knows you have to do it.. so who doesnt? your shareholders?

    BE BOLD - KILL THE COWS SHARE THE BEEF!

    stop being stupid!  ;)

     

    edit - yes im being too bold ...ahem. i am in marketing. but dont mistake that for the good intentions and half well reasoned ideas i present

    I have followed ms for ever - and still do. my google news feed is Microsoft (ha)

    * why isnt it bing? because its a stupid name that's why.

    it should be windows search and windows explorer.

    (old posts - one explorer to rule them all and buy search.com - jokers own it)

     **also said to get wordpress - was told you cant its open... NOTHING is open for 50 mil

    things need to change - heres the fast track  ( ^ )

    reply to above - maybe those screens are for phones (as stuff loads slow)

     

    but on my desktop - im a designer and i LIKE flashy bs - but they are old now

     

    re the live tiles /properties

     

    i EXCPECT properties on EVERYTHING in windows. i understand there will be  - maybe an xml file - or weird name file - that contains the text or data feed to bring in

    (that i also should be able to customize)

    even if that stuff was at skydrive - like

    properties of a tile = onedrive/tiles/corel  that would be half cool too

    i could SEE it

    i would have control over it

     

    im not into this - 1/2 UI that has no location is all

    ok let's end with a bit of drama...  (for fun)

     

    if the new ceo had of listed - most if not all of above in his first memo to staff - the press, competitors, customers and the press would have all said - WOW

    not -what did he say? platforms and productivity? windows and office again?

     

    i do read...

     

    edit: and then he said: " oh ...and one more thing..."   

    "we are re-designing the stagnate and ignored channel9 website and returning thread views to the coffehouse!"

    (standing ovation)

     

    ps - im 50!  (pulls up pants...)

  • boom baby

    im bored so ill continue talking to this screen 

    current strategy:

    build hi end $1500+$150 tablets - the no one can afford to buy - make a best of breed windows device - so you dont cannibalize your partners.  pretend you are apple

    new strategy

    spend what you spent on nokia - empowering your partners - to be able to afford hi res pixel screens - or extra proc- power - by agreeing to a new spec they need to follow - but that could get win tablets to 200 dollars

    (GOOD ones)

    goodbye Hemroid and Crapple

     

    The whole "we can take the high end - and leave the margin fighting to our "partners" is a misnomer.

    you cant.

    a) its like saying heres our table scaps

    b) it makes your pricing look like you are high falutin a-hoes

    c) you keep writing them off

     

    ...im not one to care a whole lot about the bottom line when the entire market is at stake - but these write downs could fund above

     

    =

    partners not mad - no scraps

    = good win devices - affordable

    win is free and office - sell services later (later WILL come!! bean counters - later will come!

    last - all the decades old bullcrap of making apps - just good enough - so your partners can sell better ones also must end

     

    the crapware (on new pcs not withstanding) this age old method of doing something - so its there - but its mostly useless without a 3rd party paid app - has to stop

     

    your FTP is garbage - buy cuteftp or anyone - have the windows ftp KNOW if yuve got half a file

     

    the dvd burner - old tech but - it always sucked and was slow

    items to burn to disc? from last month?

    the speed has improved ill give you that

     

    EVERY DAMN STORE APP

    make the Microsoft versions SO good -other developers dont even TRY

     

    stop being crappy and stupid

     

    IT IS BELOW YOU

    return to your former glory - when Bens and Brads tried to make everything open

    (then you called them commies - shut them down - and handed your market to google

     

    *please note... i am on your side  lol

  • boom baby

    and while im ramblin (im a ramblin guy)

    all those metro timer screens - have got to GO

    click news - pink - flat icon - spinning wheel -( has to go round..).

     

    eliminate please

    pre cache main news or weather etc

    i click a tile

     

    boom baby - news

    not 

    arbitrary - wait a few seconds

    (even if your internet is fast)

     

    every idea here and above... they are all customization and stopping the dumbing down of eveythng

     

    give us a windows that people say

     

    wow the new windows is HARD - but rewarding

     

    not Hard but STUPID

    Because they are LIVE tiles.  They don't have a single image, but are rather dynamically made up of images and text from within the application.

     

     

    right - but if i want one "live tile" to be 800 x 600 on my 2560 x 1600 monitor and then i want actuall hi res 3d icons to replace the flat metro stuff in 12 other square tiles (corel ballon / etc - then i want my pictures to be half the startmenu screen (if i chose)  and then i wanted to change color on each icon or apply background to each one

    etc

     

    what needs to end is the hiding stuff (properties of this tile - yay)

    i want a start menu central

    ...in the process you can kill the useless and ridiculously named network and sharing centre (puke)

  • boom baby

    yes it was the removal of visualy representative icons (that i used) and not TEXT to read

    My Computer - Computer - This PC

    make an icon!

     

    from the GOOD NEWS DEPT

     

    cortana on my winphone rocks!

    (had to switch to us eng but i love it

    apart from that i noticed nothing new about my phone (wp8.1)

     

    NEW RANT DEPT

    make windows free and office free - KILL google

    bring every arm you have to bare on GOOGLE - tomorrow - not next year

    own the network - free for now

    go 3 years with crappy rev numbers

    spend 5 billion on win tablets - that are 99 dollars

     

    steal back YOUR market

     

    And - kill IE

    make it either Windows Explorer - and return true ftp to th browser 

     

    or use / buy / partner with firefox (against google)

     

    google must go

     

    stop buying phone companies
