you don't watch the news?
plenty of shots were fired.
and the ukrainians stood their ground without flinching.
are you on drugs or something? X-D
and given that they have 57% of the computer o.s. market (75% if you add both apple and google) it's no wonder that the shills get a little sensitive about msft slipping to 7th as a corporation even though they are still number 2, and also in second place, in o.s.es. (-;
-- cue defensive ranting about the ever shrinking desktop arena.
so you like sprint and own [up to] 200k shares of it [somehow]?
what about nok? will you buy 3 shares of that? or just lurk and babble?
who lets this guy run winsupersite?!?!
he is an obvious short/basher! (-;
"Only Windows Gets Mobile Multitasking Right"
"This morning, I used the OneDrive app on my iPad mini to open a Word document in Apple Pages to reacquaint myself with productivity workflow, such as it is, on competing mobile platforms. Let's just say I found the experience lacking.
What's missing on all non-Microsoft platforms, as it turns out, is a formalized way to view at least two mobile apps side-by-side on screen. This is a feature that Microsoft added to Windows 8 and then improved dramatically in Windows 8.1, and while many desktop users scoff at its simplicity, it remains a key differentiator. Windows, as I've noted before, is unparalleled when it comes to productivity, even in the mobile world.
Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) both support multitasking, of course, which is the ability to run multiple apps and services simultaneously and switch between them on the fly. But neither Android nor iOS support a formal, in-platform capability to display apps side-by-side or otherwise display two or more apps onscreen at the same time.
(Android users do have a few third party apps that will enable side-by-side apps on that platform, and Samsung includes a feature called Multi Windows Mode on its Android handsets and tablets, though it only works with some apps.)
And then there's Windows."
well, they need to do something.
"Then lets look at the operating system war

So yeah. Android is totally running away with the computing environment already powering more than half of all computing devices sold in 2013 and showing dramatic gains in market share. Windows is in freefall, this year 2014 it is very likely that Apple's iOS will pass Windows as the second most sold computing operating system - quite an embarrassment for Windows and Microsoft who at their peak powered 9 out of every 10 computers sold on the planet. Now they are on less than 1 in 5 computers sold. In the others category we lost Symbian this year and Blackberry is obviously very much on the ropes."
i doubt that making their o.s. free is going to be what it takes though. they had a phone o.s. long before apple or google and they invented the tablet. so being late the the mobile game, as apologists frequently say, isn't really a factor in their loss of share.
and if the price is too high may be they could add something that justifies the cost instead of just giving it away. (-;
sounds like you didn't understand the article or don't understand how phones work.
netflix is an app, it isn't part of the rom. so installing a "clean rom" isn't even an issue here. it was installed by the company that they bought the phones from.
installing a subverted app on ios or the winphone o.s. before selling to a customer wouldn't be any safer. your recommendation won't help anyone that has a phone with malware installed on it. but at least you don't charge for it. (-;
it wasn't d+s that was killing nokia. it was the way they were doing it.
the feature phone segment was still profitable even though it was losing share. smartphones were growing very fast among all cell phones worldwide. this has leveled off for now. too late for the nok/msft partnership tho.
while a bad company like this one continues to make money.
sure, make a list. (-;
