Is it really trading servers though?
With trading services such as power etc you are trading the delivery of something, e.g. Electricity. With hosted services you are sending them stuff to process not the other way?
With servers although they are trading contracts for usage of server tin, aren't they actually trading who gets the contract to hold & process your data?
I can see this going very badly.
I can see a flaw in this
Its bad enough holding the move controller, which looks like an ann summers toy with illuminated ball on the end, now they produce a gimp mask to go with it.
Re: If Elop were CEO...
For some reason I read that as "he'd do things that lose money and focus on things that make money" which seems to be more like they typical CEO.
This whole debacle has come about by some self prompting analyst spouting off and morphed into an "Elop is doing this" via crap news articles and blogs. If its did turn out this way, xbox would be boned as a stand alone product as it I would end up needing a feck load of corporate licensing for the buyers in the future let alone how they would deal with the servers. The PS4 and Steam box would kill it in a year sadly.
makes some sense to ditch bing which I suspect gets most queries from people who don't know how to change their default search engine.
of course it depends on if they think brand and market share are important and have a value.
see a Sapphire and Steel reboot. now that was a good series.
Nah its faked
Its all a load of cobblers, after all, the chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one they said.
Re: Tony Blair is a King!
*that* king was tryin to demonstrate that no one was above god. So I think you aretty much spot on with the corrected spelling name.
I remeber watching V for vendetta and thinking John Hurt looked just like blair
ironic really tha a labour leader was the 2nd comming of thatcher, even to the point of having a wek leader follow to try and ssave face when their party was defeated on the next eletion.
I think the term is clown computing rather than cloud.
Shove all your data on remote severs run by clowns with their head in the clouds when it comes to security.
