A Malaysian newspaper writing about Nokia and Android One. These two brands combined will be big in the Asian market. No Pixel won't be a problem for much longer.

What to make of Windows Cloud?

It seems fairly certain that next month will start to ramp up the intro of Windows Cloud, a Chrome OS-like light operating system focused mostly on Microsoft's new Edge browser with some Windows Store apps thrown in to boot. Speaking of boot, it will start up just a tad more slowly than a Chromebook, but that's to be expected for a new OS, much less one from MSFT.

The main question is, will anyone but big Microsoft corporate and campus buyers care? Hard to say - whatever the "it's really not a PC" talk about CrOS machines for the past several years, millions of people know it as the one "it just works" machine that they can depend on to get work done that doesn't coast four figures for decent performance.

My sense of this is that it will allow manufacturers who already create Chromebooks to have exactly equivalent hardware available for Windows Cloud, which might increase production volumes enough to make hardware for cloud computing laptops more affordable.

My other guess is that, faced with a choice of Surface, Surface Pro, or Surface/Windows Cloud, the time spent deciding which way to go on these three machines will probably be better spent just buying a Chromebook that you can already rely on.

And with Microsoft all of a sudden changing their tune about cloudbooks, expect journalists to be doing a boatload of apples-to-apples comparisons between Windows Cloud machines - and Chromebooks getting broader and very positive reviews in the process. All for the good, hopefully.

Apple took on a small iPhone repair shop in Norway, and got served -   The "Right to repair" movement may be gaining steam here in the US, but Apple isn't sitting still, and argues that it will be consumers that will suffer in the end from unauthorized fixers with dubious aftermarket parts. The fight has been waged abroad as well, for the surprise of one Henrik Huseby, owner of a small unauthorized iPhone repair shops in the great country of Norway. After getting a shipment of iPhone screen...
