Yahoo keeps deleting my answer to you.
Devices grew 40% disrupting the IPAD and the phones contributed 1.9 billion
Windows OEM & OEM Pro
Office 365 to consumers was good.
Bing Search and advertising both did well. Bing Search could jump to 30-50% market share within 12 months now that they have Apple as the biggest customer in the world of search.
The Surface Pro 3 Pen being added to the phones and having the framework changed to auto load One Note and cloud sync notes in a Searchable Note Program that is shared to all devices or shared in corporations is a disruptor on both the Consumer and Enterprise level.
They did fairly well with Consumers just not great like you say.
Hey Mr.Planet "aka Nokia's finest",
I honestly cannot BELEIVE Apple bought beats before Here.
Obviously Apple is making deals with IBM has a deal with Microsoft to power their own Apple devices .........................
The only thing I can think of is Nokia will not Sell. They would not sell to Microsoft, they only wanted to sell the code. Apple may have indirectly gone around the need to immediately by Here because they are still using it through Microsoft in Search.
That is not the same as using it in a pure form. It appears that there are only two possibilities:
Nokia does not want to sell Here (hold forever and continue to be dominant and they will be with it). Might be the smart thing to do.
Apple cannot use it because their developers are not up to integrating the code into The Apple OS. I know that sound unbelievable but the lack of progress in the last 5 years at Apple is almost on the Unbelievable level. It does not even logically add up. I was sure they would buy Here because it makes Sense.
Since the "Beats" was done ahead of that your guess is as good as mine if Nokia refused to sell to them. It has to be Nokia refusing to sell or Apple developer/engineers cannot make it work or are too lazy.
LOL hawfaeces thinks he can assign probabilities to black swan events. Obviously he hasn't read Talebs book on the subject.
Healthcare is a growing problem in the US and rwnj want to send us back to the dark ages. If you Wikipedia the countries which have the happiest citizens you will get a list as follows: Denmark,Norway,Switzerland, Sweden, Canada, Finland and Australia in the top 10 all of which their governments provide 100% of their healthcare - completing the list of top10 happiest nations are Netherlands, Austria, and Iceland here the government provides 99.8%-99.9% for healthcare. The US ( before Obamancare) has the 17th happiest citizens and the government provides for 53.1% of healthcare. I found this surprising since I believe we have the highest standard of living but now know not the happiest citizens.
Everyday Hawcreek Posts BS Opinions ... and then uses his Multiple Aliases to give him thumbs up.
MSFT will gross 80 billion plus this year--- how is that for being all but dead--BTW how are things in the joint this morning??--oh your out??-- cant you go back?
MSFT just had another BREAKOUT premarket which generates another TA buy signal.
Too bad you're missing out on this run.
You're really funny, HAHAHAHAHAHA.............Burp.
I think any early morning gains will be sold or shorted. MSFT stock looks like it has gotten way ahead of itself.........
Less than 25% chance that wingnut "justice" prevails.
"We reach this conclusion, frankly, with reluctance. At least until states that wish to can set up exchanges, our ruling will likely have significant consequences both for the millions of individuals receiving tax credits through federal exchanges and for health insurance markets more broadly. But, high as those stakes are, the principle of legislative supremacy that guides us is higher still."
Translation: "We reach this tortured, illogical conclusion with glee. Ideally, we'll be able to crow over the disruption and damage it causes, blame it on the Kenyan Usurper, and retroactively achieve our goal of making him a one term president. There is no public interest, after all, only what suits our predilections."
Since everyone knows that the ACA is a website.
It's hard to recall when black swan possibilities seemed greater but someone seems to need to pile in and buy higher even with upside limited and downside open.
Of course the Fed funded GSs and banks of the world don't have to worry about making money all the time. If they make money they keep it, if they lose big they get bailed out by taxpayers. In that regard nothing has changed.
Two courts issued conflicting rulings on the Obamacare subsidy.
the panel that sided with allowing the subsidies said the law is ambiguous and they would allow the IRS to interpret.
'SCUSE ME?? Ambiguous laws are the only ones finding their way to a venue in a Federal Court. It is the Constitutiona responsibility of the court to interpret those laws. that responsibility cannot be delegated to others.
We will have to see if broader courts want to neuter themselves to cover for the incompetent law professor in chief who cannot include an essential component needed to make the law arguably viable.
It would be funny if not so sad of a comment how uneducated voters elected an unprepared and incompetent "leader".
Blah, blah, blah.
At least you don't bother sharing your deep insights on the value of an MSFT investment any more.
Now the dolt has had the approved Keystone pipeline on his desk for a year and he cannot decide to move forward.
But Obama was in such a fkucing hurry to ram the abortion known as Obamacare down our throats before we could see what was in it that he and his flunky minions left out key language to allow subsidies.
This is good for those who want real reform because it brings to light the real costs of the new law is revealed instead of transferred to other taxpayers.
