We all love bonking to pay, but if you bonk with a Windows Phone then Microsoft has bad news

Charles3

Why are you selling?

Stop selling without any notion of technology whatsoever. I do NFC payments on my Fitbit. Doesn't make sense on a phone. Cold. Dead. Fingers.

Microsoft polishes up Chromium as EdgeHTML peers into the abyss

Charles3

I appreciate stupidity for stupidity sake, but Edge is a much better browser. It doesn't replace Internet Explorer. It replaces Chrome. As Windows 10 is adopted more and more, Edge will own the market. Its just pacing itself. As for Chromium open source, Microsoft is embracing it, but as its open source nobody owns it and certainly not Google. So its best to just keep quiet about things you don't understand. I'm sure Microsoft is looking to create a chromium browser just like anyone else. Since Google is trying to hold it back from Windows 10 on Arm. Giving users options is the best way to ensure life is good for Windows.

NYPD head of IT doubles down on Windows smartphone idiocy

That's a picture of the author on this article. I can tell. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S8 and its obviously that its a piece of crap. My half the price Alcatel Idol 4S is way better than this turd. Argh, the things I do to integrate with Toyota Entune.

Microsoft sneaks onto Android while Android sneaks onto Windows

Microsoft owns Android. It doesn't exist without Microsoft's say-so. Deal with it open-source nuts. You can't steal other people's idea. Android IS Linux. Nothing new. Old as your grandmother.

Windows Phone won't ever succeed, says IDC

Charles3

Lazy authors.

I guess it depends on your definition of success. If success is selling more phone this year than last year, they've been successful since before the iPhone first came into being. Microsoft is stable, they've never been one for leaps and bounds. They put in the work. They are gimmicky or gadget makers.

Google, Rockstar to bury zombie Nortel patent lawsuit

Charles3

Watch Flash of Genius and tell me what Google and the like wasn't EVIL. You guys are being ridiculous. Patents ARE INVENTIONS. And the smart people that invented things deserve to REAP the rewards. Nortel were a bunch of inventors! They continue with Rockstar. They made the world a better place and you best recognize that. Google ripped them off. And several other follow suit. God bless a justice system that can recognize that and force this type of settlement. Google should pay every dime they have to Rockstar. Its not just Android. Its their advertising business! It was invented and patented by Nortel. Google ripped it off and has made 100's of billions of dollars off that invention. You are a moron if you think Google is in the right here.

Google says it paid TOO MUCH tax, wants $83.5m refund

Charles3

Google sucks

They don't deserve revenue in the first place. Stop buying their crap, and we won't have to worry about them dodging taxes or not providing any sort of advancement in society. The 90's called, they want their search engine back (that they stole from MS anyway).

Microsoft lures buy-curious vixens, corduroys with a cheap fondle

Re: Does this heavy discounting

I like your name.

Windows 8 is a success

Microsoft does not have to answer to anyone. They don't need to post records. If the IDC wants to make estimates that's fine, but noone knows the real success but Microsoft. Thier actions state success, not failure. Thier stock states success, not failure. And being charitable to students has always been a cornerstone of Microsoft. Take Office Home and Student. Thank goodness too. Think of my tax dollars being spent for the lowest value per dollar spent Apple. I would hate that.
