That business is not viable if it requires wage slaves to make a profit. More likely it's greed that enslaves low wage employees.
Better than Lincoln, better than all. The effort to discredit him, degrade him, failed. Why are they still trying to discredit him at this stage?
I think I just heard that Washington, DC Police are finally getting Body Cameras. I mean C'mon the Nations Capitol. It is important not to underestimate the power of what Microsoft actually has. They have met criteria to store Law Enforcement Data if that FOP chooses to want to do business with Microsoft. they do choose Microsoft, some of those shiny Surface 3's. Venues, Windows phone , Cloud.
That is an enormous advantage over every other company.
I am not worried and have been around long enough that only a complete "ROOKIE SHORT" would confuse the decline this week with anything relevant to Microsoft . I know about European sales. The US sales will be strong enough next several quarters to teach anyone foolish enough to short Microsoft a good Ole American Lesson.
Lesson to be learned here by all the hotshot Analyst's as well.
Been Laughing all the way to the....
Gawd, you're a tedious moron.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
You are the advertising critic and it is 100% justified. One thing to keep in mind is that there was a "Situation" with Verizon where there where "0" Lumia phones on the shelves for the entire qtr. I do not think they are allowed to advertise the new Windows 10 Phones with any carrier. You probably know more about that than I do. Microsoft is looking at protecting it's Holo Lens technology and that is not Intel but AMD so I hear. I have no idea what that means for the Intel pushing to get things out in time. I can say that Intel seems to hold grudges if Microsoft treats them like Intel is not their main girl.
I have been in Fab's that are off name and Microsoft seems to expand it's horizons. It is just how I feel and never read that Microsoft was being "punished" by Intel for spreading Microsoft tech to AMD and others. Intel is my favorite and I am an extreme power user. I want an Intel best chip available and only AMD for XBOX or HOLO LENS.
You are obviously right about the advertising and I think Microsoft sees your opinion in their face. Hopefully if you say it loud and often enough maybe they will start advertising Windows Phone for a change. Your points are valid but there are features on W10 Enterprise Phone that make Windows Phone "GOLDEN" this time. Perfect Storms blow everything but Microsoft Windows 10 Phone out to sea. It is different this time.
All the clueless people that where in charge of spending money in IT Procurement finally get that they HAVE TO ACT and ACT Appropriately. Keep up the good pressure on the lack of Advertising and clarity for Consumers in W10 Phone.
It will all work out.
Not the first time I have stuck up for Mr. BELIFORE and it will not be the last. Sort of changed for Mr. ELOP because all devices operate the same. I can't remember what I was going to say about phone calls on a phablet and I guess saying all devices are the same is not completely true. I cannot make a phone call on the first gen. Microsoft Band. However, there is a new one that is on Windows 10 and there is a new version of Visual Studio coming out.
Hope you can find the patience to give it a little. This is really impressive stuff coming.
They are land Enormous Contracts (Biggest Names in the Business).
One or two contracts with certain organizations I will not name can add up to 100's of thousands of Windows Phone10.
There is a Security Crisis going on. The Phones that are Secure:
Containers, Encryption, Enterprise Security ...... cost under $200. There are a few organizations I will not name that are desperately looking for an answer to the problems they obviously need help with.
Blackberry are Secure Devices. However and this is as big as a problem as anything. They do not have a secure cloud (US Gov. Cloud) like Microsoft does that they nee to SYNC secure data for ALL THE SOFTWARE AND APPLICATIONS THEY ACTUALLY USE THAT MICROOFT CREATED.
Microsoft may not be flashy with Consumers. They are on a tech genius roll in regards to solutions for Enterprise and other clients I will not mention.
Read Nutella's memo about the death of windoze phony, you useless kunnnt.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
It seems to me they are as hard at work that it may even qualify as "On A Mission". The are several weeks away from having the most Secure Phone available and that is the most important thing in the world right now.
They just made a new Payment solution outside of their Microsoft Payments that will allow workers or Entrepreneurs to take any type of payment on the road. A Heating & AC Co. Sends a worker to a customers house. The repair guy can swipe a credit card, send an email receipt to a customer and integrate the transaction into the companies software. It works on even a low end Lumia.
Microsoft is in the process of allowing all the Android and Apple apps works on Windows Phone in a safe container.
Microsoft has Encryption on the phone and advanced safeguards that allow Enterprise to keep separate personal & private and play a watchdog.
Microsoft Has An ENTERPRISE version of Windows 10 that has INCREDIBLE POWER. Nothing else is even close.
Microsoft allows an Organization to visit the Windows App Store and have a way of downloading their Companies or Governments Apps that the Public Cannot See. If you have 5000, 10000 people that need to download companies apps that is "Heaven Sent".
Microsoft is in fact servicing those organizations with the 10,000 + size employees.
Microsoft has credentials that no other company has and can offer Certain Organizations custom applications ...........
Microsoft just landed UBER and will create custom software with integrated maps and software on Windows Phone.
I have never seen more amazing things in my life. I cannot speak for what they planned on cutting. However, if the walls could talk they would say Phone is not a candidate. Numbers are on the upside.
They have not one any advertising. Verizon has played extremely with Microsoft. However, Microsoft has a lot of power.
All the Windows 10 Phones are not public info. So it is speculation that they are not doing anything.
I think you may find even a 640XL impressive.
Just read an article at windows central website that says all is well with phones - two flagships due out maybe in the fall. Also read Surface 4 coming, and new wrist band.
I would hope so - with W10, MSFT needs home-run hardware to match. I think Surface 4 will be good, and I think HP, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS, and others, will produce some very good hardware. New band will help - I think that could be big (slowly - relatively, given the size of the market) - well integrated into W10, and MSN fitness site, and phone/pc apps.
Xbox and HoloLens will do well.
The weak link is phones. I don't think it's a hardware or software issue - I think it's marketing. The Bay area tech press dumps on Windows phones, loves Apple and Google. MSFT needs to steamroller that prejudice with carpet bombing advertising of the larger eco-system, and how the phone fits into that ecosystem - why it makes no sense to have Windows on your laptop at home, PC at work ,and to have an Android or iPhone. No sense, but a lot of people do.
"No opinion was offered"
Everything you post is an OPINION ... You Lose.
"WBush was the worst president since Hoover."
Bush was so bad, He Went Into Hiding.
"More Anti-Obama OPINIONS ..."
No opinion was offered, illiterate one, fortunately the loony idea is not going to happen.
and having worked 84 hour weeks on salary, I can identify with the sentiment.
the construction trade regularly expects to work 50 or 60 hours a week when work is busy, that allows paying 40 hour weeks to keep people receiving a check when little or no productive (money making) work is available.
Obama has a child like simplistic view of companies and worker salary. He's never needed to produce anything to get paid. His compensation has never been based on "make something people want or go hungry" motivation, he's like a fresh 23 year old college graduate and since he's done nothing to produce, he has not grown beyond that.
Health insurance can be bought on exchanges, free workers from the iron grip of their abusive capitalst masters.
More Anti-Obama OPINIONS from the Anti-Obama Hawcreek Team ...
