they realized it - but too late

Can we hope firefox-os can give us more freedom ?

dont think so ! too late ! ppl r locked-in to not one but two ecosytems.

The open firefox browser should never have put a google search box by default;

as if google is non-profit and it has the best interests of web consumers.

smart glass is a device independent

smart glass :

1. device independent [ works on android, ios, wp7, wp8, w8, wrt ,etc]

2. it is not a readmade app: it is rather a platform that devs can creatively capitalize on

3. for example:

a tv remote

a game controller

a keyboard to browse menus and internet [IE]

a companion for tv shows, movies, games and music.

a mouse / keyboard [both] with tv being the monitor and xbox being CPU

Megaphone

what about skype, instagram

I dont understand matt; why you have not considered skype and instagram.

Microsoft bigs up open source, then stuffs it under the sofa

lokanadam
Thumb Down

opensource cannot sustain real corps.

simple open source rules corps follow [including famed open-Google and others]

1. software that is bread and butter to my company - keep it locked in

[ google search engine, google gmail , etc]

2. software that will kill my competitors - make it open source

[ google docs, etc]

3. software that will make my proprietary s/w more popular / deeply routed - make it open source

[ google android, etc]

- freemium is the other face of open source.

- also I hope the commentators here have a clarity about being open and providing open source code.

Silverlighters committed despite Microsoft's HTML5 love

lokanadam
Thumb Down

two sides of a coin

its the blogs and the media gone crazy, i for one working with silverlight and html5 am not bothered a bit.

both will live long enough and compensate each other, as they have individual strengths and weaknesses.
