Bill Gates

According to Newton there is a reaction for every action. Now this law was intended to be applied to the world of physical objects and how they interact with each other. However it would seem that it also applies to how we interact with each other on more than just a physical level. One new example of this is that stock holders are looking to remove Bill Gates from Microsoft as Chairman of the Board. Gates was a strong supporter of Steve Ballmer during his tenure. He supported the move to a products and services company and many other moves that Ballmer took.

In the same way that he held his presentations so far, emotionally and with high pace, he held the last one which server as the official goodbye from co-workers.

Ballmer Blames Vista for Windows Phone's Failure

MS-Myth

So you all remember Windows Vista right? It seems that Microsoft and Steve Ballmer also remember that failed OS (despite current appearances with Windows 8). In fact Steve Ballmer is using Windows Vista as an excuse for their late entry and poor performance in the mobile market. This would seem an odd thing to do as Vista was not a well thought out OS and it was one that failed for Microsoft almost as bad as Windows 8 is right now. The key problem with Vista was that Ballmer and crew tried to make the entertainment industry happy with protections against unauthorized use of movies or copying of the same.

Ballmer buuys nokia

It was bound to happen (and we predicted it last year), but Microsoft has gone ahead and bought Nokia’s devices and services division. The move, while not unexpected, is an interesting one for Microsoft. Although Microsoft does manufacture some of their own devices they have mostly stayed out of production until now. With the move to buy up Nokia’s production facilities including the Lumia line. This puts Microsoft in the driver’s seat for the largest manufacturer of Windows Phone devices. Will Microsoft be able to get around their apparent curse when it comes to making (and marketing) mobile devices with this move?

Fun with numbers part 2.789428+10E

apple leading

My statistical analysis instructor once told me that numbers have their own magic and rules as soon as they enter the world of statistics. A 5 is no longer a 5 there as it becomes defined, qualified and categorized. His meaning is that you can use numbers in very different ways in statistics and these might not always measure up with reality. This magic goes far beyond the fact that there are three different ways to find an “average”. The distortion is so great that using actual numbers you can prove almost anything with them.
