    Not sure what you mean here.  Since you tend to jump all over the place, 



    I dont - jump - all over the place...

    I LIE AROUND - All over the place:

    ... i appreciate being able to use a c9 thread as an idea instant message window

    thanks everyone for not beer28 ban hammering me ; )

  • boom baby

    what else...hmmm




    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

    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?


    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

    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...)

    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!
