Clippers just lost their best defender and I'm guessing their going to have to settle for "Big Baby" Davis.

Might be a tough year for the Clips without Jordan. I'm surprised he picked the Mavs to be honest.
With zero centers on the roster and no salary cap flexibility, Jordan's decision to pick Dallas really stings the Clippers.

Well, there you have it.
 
BANGS HEAD ON DESK REPEATEDLY

Ways in which Android is clearly not like Windows.

-Android leverages the fact that it is an open platform with no major licensing costs. LITERALLY THE OPPOSITE OF WINDOWS.
-Android has seen the most penetration in the developing world. Windows was and largely remains a rich country's OS.
-Windows never sought to be a hub for consumer content. Windows was just an operating system. Aside from Microsoft's own software business, they kept their hands out of content.
-Android still has low penetration in businesses. Windows has long thrived on its strong sales to medium and large businesses.
-Android has no penetration in the server market. Microsoft has made a killing selling Windows Server-only enterprise, business, back-end, and other software that will only ever run on Windows Server, and that is how they sell bulk licenses because this is how Microsoft makes money.

If anything, the author here fails to understand that it is now Microsoft who is attempting to be the new Android. Android is antithesis of "old Microsoft."

Instead, the post's sole point seems to be that both Android and Windows can be implemented across a wide range of hardware (something that literally anyone with a modicum of knowledge about the industry could observe) and that, like Windows, Android now is on a huge number of devices around the world.

What value is there in that analysis, exactly? "New thing is popular like old thing, like old thing it appears in many places." Thanks for that. I can't wait for the next post, in which the author discusses how digital cameras are the new film cameras.
I suspect that Android, at least from a numbers viewpoint, will continue to be the dominant mobile and IoT system for many years to come.

+Brandon Lall I agree, observation is simplistic and the guy didn't put much thought into the analysis. Nonetheless, it must be admitted that many of the struggles that Microsoft faced and the rewards it obtained are very similar to what Google will have with Android.

My guess is that they are going to test this "Enterprise Edition" amongst businesses and take that feedback and tweak the device for an eventual launch. If they do go about testing the "Enterprise Edition" publicly, I expect it will be much different from the way they tested and promoted Glass at fashion shows.

"Because this device has now passed through the FCC—just as the CAP1 health tracker from Google[x] did earlier this year—we can assume that Google might be ready to move toward wider testing potentially within the enterprise itself. The prototypes we’ve heard about have been under lock and key up to this point, but with FCC approval, it might be about time for Google to see how this device works in the field."

It was called "Explorer Edition" for a reason.

This device could be a huge win for BlackBerry. If they're working with Google & hopefully contributing to Android for Work, Android for Work + BlackBerry Enterprise could potentially eliminate all potential barriers limiting Android adoption in the enterprise & help chip away at the iPhone's marketshare.

Wade is signing a 1 year $20 million deal with the Heat. Dwyane released a statement that said:

"It has been an honor and privilege to play with the Miami Heat the past 12 years," Wade said in a statement first released to AP. "The Heat family and I have shared incredible moments over the years and I look forward to continuing our journey. I am extremely proud of my personal contributions in helping to build the Heat franchise and for bringing three NBA championship wins to our great city."

You don't really need a YouTube app on your watch, but it might be good for finding a quick YouTube video to cast to your T.V.

"How are you going to listen to The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny for the fiftieth time? Fear not, you connoisseur of impractical watch apps. Video for Android Wear & YouTube supports casting to any Chromecast or Android TV device."

While I'm all for competition, this might be the best thing for Microsoft as they want to transition to more of a service company. We all know that Windows Phone has a small market share and when compared with Android and iOS it has little chance to take both down.

However, if they do decide to kill Windows Phone there would a small amount of consumers who would be stuck with devices that would receive no support which could potentially hurt their brand.

#Microsoft #Windows
 
RIP Windows Phone?

Windows 10 will be reaching millions of users this month, but Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Team may be thinking of dropping one of their platforms soon: Windows 10 for Phones and Small Tablets.

Instead, Microsoft may focus on promoting Android devices with preinstalled Microsoft apps (but not forks - these would be Google Play Supported devices), while seeking a deal with Google for First Class Windows Apps.  Google could, instead, push Chrome as the only way to get First Class Google Apps on Windows (courtesy of App Runtime for Chrome), so this is probably a wise move, given Chrome's obvious ambitions to become an OS-On-Top-of-Windows.

If true, this would be huge: Microsoft would be admitting utter defeat in the mobile platform market, and for all the money they can throw at getting their apps preinstalled, a future involving MS as a universal OS King would be an extremely remote possibility.

Do you think Microsoft should abandon pushing Windows 10 for mobile devices?

+Michael Webber​​ India a primary spot for Android One had the Yu Yureka a Cyanogen phone for about the same price as a Lumia 640 and it had a 13MP camera and a 2GB of RAM. 

You're right Windows Phone is on life support and at the moment there is seemingly nothing Microsoft can do to save it.

A new Android One device will reportedly be launched on July 14 for Rs 12,000 ($190).

"The latest Android One smartphone, made by Indian handset vendor Lava International, will be launched in Delhi on July 14 and will cost about Rs 12,000, roughly twice what the first phones were priced at. The launch is likely to be attended by top Google executives involved with the project."

The latest device has been developed in collaboration on hardware and software with Lava and chipmaker MediaTek.

This is reportedly a BlackBerry device running Android.

"Evan Blass just can’t stop. Earlier today he came out on Twitter to say that BlackBerry’s Android-powered “Venice” smartphone is on its way to AT&T, and now he has shared an image of what looks to be some kind of BlackBerry device running Google’s mobile operating system."

Wouldn't be the first device that bears resemblance to Google Glass (goo.gl/xuHGgX) that passed through the FCC.

"In the package is an AC charger and USB cable. Another interesting tidbit disclosed in the FCC filing is the FCC’s Label & Location document, which you access by going to the settings menu, regulatory information, and scrolling left and right to view device e-labels."

Introduction
Okay maybe that's not all ;).

The technology revolution is something that is constantly changing and more specifically it is the mobile technology revolution that is the driving force today. 

Our phones and tablets do so much more today than we expected it to do 10 years ago, we can do anything from type an email to edit a word document or even turn on the lights in our home these kinds of things just wasn't possible 10 years ago.

We now heavily rely on our mobile devices more than our desktop computers and the industry is constantly improving, we have mobile devices in many form factors: smartphones, tablets, glasses and now watches and we have just scratched the surface...the possibilities are truly endless.

One of the platforms leading this mobile revolution is Android ( with 1 billion device activations), so you can expect to see a lot of Android related posts from me. I'm also a huge Chrome/Chrome OS fan, so expect posts on that as well.

Along with having a passion for technology I also enjoy anything basketball related. 

Some circle suggestions to put me in:
  • Tech Enthusiast (or anything technology, Android or Chrome related)
  • Basketball Fan
