only down $0.02 in today's after hours action so far.
but i think that once investors see that msft lost over $600 mio. on d+s, even with almost $2billion in revenue and only 2 months ownership in the qtr. they may decide that nokia is a better investment than they thought it was and become more interested.
hope you have tweezers!!!!!!!!! (-;
but really, thanks for trying to distract him a bit before he clutters up the board with more grandiose fantasies about stuff that doesn't exist, hasn't happened or doesn't work anything at all like he describes it. at least he mostly talks only to himself but even that makes a horrible mess of the board.
nope. the arm-versions, r.t and phone, are going to be merged. they have been working on that for close to a year. still not doen, may be a while before thay can unscrew it. why have two arm-based mobile o.s.es? that never made any sense.
the intel version will still be totally incompatible with phones and arm-tablets. xbone uses an amd processor, so it won't be running the merged arm-o.s. and it won't be running w8 either. it will still be running the xbone o.s.
the right way to do this was to develop it across all 3 platforms to start with, 4 if they were going to include the xbone in this cluster-flop. but no ...
at least folks aren't still saying that it was a single seems-like-less o.s. across all platforms anymore like they did when msft fist welded the useless phone gui onto p.c.s.
well, except for you. (-;
jordie is running a diagnostic on that nacelle now.
since there is no nokia pen, on the shorefishie or off of it, and since storing photos somewhere that is not searchable is equivalent to losing them, he felt that a repair was likely needed.
your space suit is magnetically attached to the hull. so be sure to put it on within a few minutes of going outside. (-;
but once you take your suit off again you will need a different driver for going backward. you will be disintegrated and the clouds escaping from your body will stream away at high speed. (o;|]
we should start an auction and see how many clues we can sell him.
he'll never figure it out!!!!!!!!
now the surface phone, that's light!!!
non-existent, no sales, no hardware, no customers. it doesn't get any lighter than that!
except for your brain! X-D
it's not really usable without a keyboard.
then it's no longer light.
all the figures about it being lighter than a mac book air were pretty silly since they were done without it being configured as a laptop. now you repeat the same misleading/mistaken guff.
not dominant, dominated ; by bad management, wasteful acquisitions, failed products and hubris.
while it's too late for you to learn english it will never be too soon for you to stop displaying that you can't. X-D
iphone sales up 48% in china.
msft-o.s. phones fell below 3% share in the u.s., a drop of about 30%.
losing $38 mio. _is_ better than any previous quarter, but since you have no numbers on shorefish 3 sales you are only pretending to know that they aren't selling even fewer than the horrible w.a.r.t. and the other pseudo-tablets that they have lost $billions on.
why do you do that? (-; are you part weasel and simply can't speak factually?
i must agree that the beats headphones are not good at all.
but they at least sell and make a profit. not like msft's phone o.s. and tablets/o.s.es.
may be "Dr. Drew", (whoever that is) will get hired by msft to sponsor a product that looks like a successful one but doesn't sell and causes $billions in losses. zarf trall, gotta keep up the tradition! X-D
you can use a stylus, which you are calling a pen, on any capacitive screen device. nothing new there, nothing specific to nokia, lumia, shorefish, msft, etc. go buy one at big lots today, they are cheap as dirt.
i'll bet it's not possible for you to sound more foolish. but give it a try! X-D
msft's operating income for fiscal 2014 was just under $27 billion. apple projects they will make between $37 and 40 billion NEXT QUARTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
your opinion is like w8: no matter if it -is- free it's still overpriced and of no real value. (-;
msft _lost_ another $38 mio. on shorefish and wrote off another $900 mio. apple actually made money on their tablets even though they sold fewer of them than in the previous quarter.
now as to the bloodbath -- apple sold over 13 mio. ipads. how many did msft sell? apple made money on their tablets too, they didn't lose another $billion like msft did. sounds like you don't know what a blood bath is ; just like little-willie doesn't know the meaning of the word competition.
that sure explains the $38 mio. in negative revenue for shorefish and the $900 mio. in negative margins for _just_this_quarter_. they must be paying people a -lot- to _not_ buy either ipads or shorefish!!!
no need to be afraid, apple is still making money on them (you obviously missed their earnings report) and msft is still _losing_ both money and market share on both phones and tablets. by the way, that's not what competition means but you aren't likely to ever learn english well enough to figure that out!
and that's over just two months out of the quarter since the takeover wasn't until the end of april.
once there is no more profit coming in from the feature phones and the a.o.s.p. handsets the losses will skyrocket since there is no revenue coming in to offset them. (-;
not to be fair to msft but just to be realistic, most of the layoffs are the ex-nokians, so that isn't impacting seattle much, if at all. still shabby/slimy.
but when will they make a profit? growing revenue is good, but you need to take in more than you spend, i.e. revenue should be larger than cost of revenue. that hasn't happened since bing was started!
you make it sound like a good thing when it is just a drain on corporate resources and keeps investors wary of such specious practices.
no worries, they will blow it to cover the costs incurred in trying to sell phones and tablets that no one wants.
