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!
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
