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
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)
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
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
(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!"
ps - im 50! (pulls up pants...)
im bored so ill continue talking to this screen
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
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
goodbye Hemroid and Crapple
The whole "we can take the high end - and leave the margin fighting to our "partners" is a misnomer.
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!
