Swiftkey sold to Microsoft, but why?

Having read that the inevitable has happened, a great startup like SwiftKey caching in, I'm disappointed in learning who the buyer is.

Windows Phone is on it's last legs. So why would Microsoft want to spend $250m on technology that would have made more sense being embedded in a native keyboard experience on a mobile OS?

But what would be awesome is if Microsoft can infuse SwiftKey prediction into their Windows Input API.

Ever tried to type on a standard size keyboard with one hand, and cursing the absence of proper predictive texting? And note I'm saying Predictive Texting. Not Word Completion.

Common Microsoft. Spoil us with something nice on a future Windows 10 update.

This is how Delphi overcame short legs, a loooong body, and momentum.

If only RIM (when they were still called RIM) had listened to us 4 years ago, BlackBerry would still be the world's leading handset manufacturer.

I'll buy an Android handset from them any day!

Patsy and Delphi. Patsy (right) passed away a few years back, but her picture still features proudly on the fridge door, along with the rest of the family's photos.

We are on the cusp of breaking through the stereotypical man / machine boundaries.  

If robots can ride motorcycles, it's clear that our only competitive edge over robots - at present - is creativity.  And man's creativity will (in my humble opinion) will spark the birth of true artificial intelligence, which will encompass creativity.

And then man has made a machine to his own image... Sounds familiar?

Is it just me, or did Google+ Polls take over this platform?

I feel it's nothing more than click-bait and I find myself spending less and less time on Google+, irritated by the absence of thought-provoking posts presumably being pushed out by polls.
