    what else...hmmm

     

    outlook.com

     

    i like it alot

    id never PAY for it though - as when i click a message - even with perfect internet - i have to click back and forth 5 times to get it display the new nessage i want to see

    lame

    i love all the - any device stuff - but it works better on my phone than on my pc!

     

    and where is the date and time - normal

     

    and why cant i customize everything in it?

    great start - 40 out of 100

     

    (ps everyone else - 10 out of a 100)

    Xbox kinect kaffufle = solved.

    1. you DONT take it out (look stupid)

    2. you stand your ground on ORIGINAL principal that the interaction will work - to not be afraid of it - and that all future xbox's with connect will have a voice command for "Close View"

    and a motorized thing covers down over the ever seeing eye/lens. so you KNOW it isnt seeing you.

    = consumers - RELAX
    *maybe this is one of things you blow your cash wad on instead of phone companies)

     

    related...

    you KNOW where your tiles are.

    you KNOW your computer / device is yours.

     

    customization - PARAMOUNT

    i know that was a good closer ... but i STILL have(nt found what im...)
    ...a few more gripes. yip - even more.

     

    I used to be the IE king. switch that company - use the features - do this do that.

     

    now im on chrome... why is that?

     

    maybe it is because:

    - ie prompts me over and over to use bullcrap smart screen filter

    - ie's (bings?) auto complete is bad - especially on phone - have to type my own email addres every time (will see if this has been fixed in wp8.1

    - i load diver programs from cd (vid cards etc) and ie puts in that stupid yellow bar - with allow to run

    its like so early 2000's

    - the icons havent changed - the tabs look weird now - IE used to let you do MORE than other alternatives - now it is the browser for kids - = dumded down too much

    stop being stupid

     

    on kid machines - that i build 2 of every year from old stuff - i used to make it all IE - now its chrome.  I was number 1 ie fan i went to the toronto ie4 launch. 

     

    i was on board

     

    why am i not anymore

     

    hmmm

    oh ya - cause sales sports jocks ran the company for the last 10 years

    i AM rambling now - but you know what i mean when youre forced to deal with 90's ie "ideals" in a chrome world

    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  ( ^ )

  • boom baby

    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

  • boom baby

    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
