To me it sounds like the principle its using is an a* algorithim with an adaptive map weightings based on pills eaten, fruit and ghost momement (as if they are edible themselves).

Re: Is there a way i can register as a tech business?
You have forgot two important aspects:
1- Using the buzzwords Disruptive Technology (i think that means assaulting someone with a mobilephone)
2 - Walking around with a sense of entitlement and wondering why people arn't climbing over each other to give you money.
Of course you also need some crapoy mobile phone app that foes things like draw moustashes on cats.
what it feels like
"But the marketing shift towards cloud appears to be unstoppable."
There, subtle fix but more accurate from a customer perspective. Its all about sales and land grabbing a customers IT infrastructure to sell more later, sod being pragmatic.
It wont make any difference in the end. Big corporates will upgrade as the consultancies and auditors will scare them about compliance and risk. Many IT managers will get another year of safe employmemt managing the upgrade.. Contractors will make a nice killing in the migration, companies will make a nice killing on upgrades for incompatible software. The money will keep churning around as Microsoft dictates the PC sales market (which is what this really is evidence of). MS & hardware are desparate to get the upgrade cycle kick started again as they have shot them selves in the foot pushjng "the cloud save your day".
Smaller companies who cant afford to will retain old PCs and run windows 7 well beyond end of life, some may move to Linux, more will move to Apple (in the end commercial support is considered king of compliance).
I could imagine alternate firmware loaded for something like a BB-Father Jack, wanders around randomly swearing frequently.
Give it a hundred years or so and we will be seeing pictures like this from other solar systems. Sadly I won't be around to see them.
things never really change
Its the same old "Keen novice who thinks wiggling a mouse and using Excel (and maybe a bit of Access) makes you an IT professional. As already said here, its when it goes tits up or they didn't think they needed backups "cos its in eth clowd so safe" or the developer doing it to budget rushed or bodged documentation that they realise a good team of skilled staff is what they needed.
A better model is to centralise the IT function (its a function OF BUSINESS not a separate entity) and get them bringing on additional developers as needed to make sure they are properly managed and don't deliver ropey shite that needs them in again to get paid again to come back in and fix it.
reminds me of:
Given an infinite number of pickups with an infinite number of rednecks with an infinite number of shotguns and an infinite number of road signs they could write the whole works of Shakespear in braile.
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.
