Pathetic PC sales just cost us a BILLION dollars, cries Intel

The term "Wintel" comes to mind...

As goes Microsoft's Windows so goes the hardware that runs it.

It's to bad Intel can't solve this issue with another OS that would generate some excitement and sell more PCs.

Bank of America wants to shove its IT into an OpenCompute cloud. What could go wrong?

I hope it's not a cloudy window dressing on an Achilles Heel.

I don't find comfort in the thought that all data in one location means all offices could be offline if that location has trouble or is cut off.

That said I hope, for their customers' sake, up time is unlike Azure.

Re: New Can be good

New Can be good

Internet Explorer started life as Spyglass Inc "Mosaic" browser code. Most things we get from Microsoft started out as another company's code that Microsoft built on top of. Can you imagine if they learned to do well making their own code from scratch. If they get good at it they might even be able to create a whole new OS without all the old quirks and behaviors of their current NT based one one.

Apple. This is what happens when you insist on a rapid release schedule. Quick and dirty or at a more practical pace compatible with the Quality of a release. (my worthless two cents again)

Sad

As much as I like my Mac more than my PC one sad fact continues to stand out with Apple. When they do make a mistake, it takes a public knock down drag out legal fight to get them to correct it. On these kind of issues, Apple continues to comes across as the company most combative against their own customers. It's mind boggling. ( just my two worthless cents)

With 7 Billion people on the planet you'd think the market would be big enough for more hand-held device OSes to choose from. Instead it's all just Android variants. I'm not sure I like this.

I'm beginning to wonder if the human race is nothing but meat robots that can't create original things so much.

If I could have loaded my must-have x86 progys...

...THEN I could be coaxed into trying Windows on an Arm CPU.

In 2016 there's going to be a 16nm Arm chip introduced that can run at 2+Ghz. It's enough to run my desktop programs provided the OS was designed to run them on an ARM chip. Running my must-have PC programs on ARM is the only thing missing.

'If you see a stylus, they BLEW it' – Steve Jobs. REMEMBER, Apple?

tempemeaty
Bronze badge

Interesting but I hope Apple hasn't lost the plot

Having to keep a stylus with the device is an additional material realm burden and takes away from the experience. If a technology is sufficiently advance such things shouldn't be needed to enter data. Only exception I would consider a stylus for is the fact that fine point pressure and angle control is needed for artistic endeavors on the device like emulated paint brush and pencil work.

Norks: FBI's Sony Pictures' hacking allegations are 'groundless slander'

I'm not taking the NORK Bait™.

All the hackers wanted was money. That was their thing in the communications with Sony before the media brought up the NORK idea in it's speculations.

Of course the hacker and the US Gov are opportunistic predators so both glomped on to the NORK thing.

It's region locking that stopped me from getting into gaming. The only games I found interesting and possibly fun were ones for sale only in Asia outside the US market. I guess I just don't think like the game companies say I'm supposed to. Their loss. I found other interests.

FCC commissioner trying to change the argument?

Netflix pays for infrastructure because the ISP's are unwilling to build the upgrades needed to keep up with the rest of the world. IMHO, FCC commissioner is looking for excuses to collude with the ISPs. I Think the fully corrupt FCC commissioner is looking for an excuse to shift blame and pave the way to kill net neutrality allowing the fully corrupt USA ISPs have it their way.

I agree. ~1% is true for Linux global OS market share statistics.

Sorry if I wasn't completely clear. I mean that in all sincerity. When I say "us," I mean those who read The Register. I could be wrong but I get the sense that the readers of the The Register don't all fit the statistical norm.
