This is a very real problem.  My clients often wait years for decisions.

I get that Paul's the "windows" guy, but this post comes off as way less informed than he usually is.

Android and Windows Phone are the only two OS's competing for the third-party smartphone market. Everyone else - Apple, Rim, and HP, are companies that tie their OS to their own devices alone. Android is doing well because it got to this market early and has allowed its partners to customize the OS to allow for brand differentiation. With the exception of the Nokia deal, Microsoft has been very reluctant to allow manufacturers to customize the os.

Android certainly isn't "free" as Paul suggests. Microsoft has worked out licensing deals with most of the manufacturers, so their is a cost associated with it.

Google has managed to develop their business in such a way that they don't need to make their money through licensing. The job of companies who choose to still charge for their products is simply to show that there is enough value in that product that it's still worth the money. Not stomping their collective feet and saying that Google needs to be stopped.
Google's Android OS currently dominates the smart phone market in a way that should scare anyone who's paying attention. After all, this dominance has come in huge leaps over a very short period of ti...

I've read all of the books (including the latest one), so I've had lots of seasons spoiled by doing that.

Very cool article from Gizmodo on this new fangled google+ stuff. I think this is one of the highlights -

The cool thing about Google+ is that you don't have to reciprocate somebody's affection for you. Like Twitter, relationships can be asynchronous. On Facebook, we have to mutually agree to be "friends" in order to see each others accounts. One person sends a friend request; another accepts or declines it. On Twitter both parties don't have to do this little dance. Google+ is much the same.

you can follow celebs or new sources, and stay up-to-date with your friends, all in an integrated place. Really liking that so far.
My inbox is blowing up with email notifications from Google+. I launched Gmail this morning and the damn thing looked like it had been duck-raped by notifications about new followers and new comments ...

It seems like Microsoft is looking to deal the knockout punch to Google TV. The breadth of content that's going to be accessible via the xbox is simply astounding. This is really all about the licensing deals. The fact that on top of access, they're using Bing to offer cross-application search for media content makes it a very compelling offering, and seems poised to out-google google TV.

Hopefully with the imminent (maybe) update of Google TV, including the Android Market, we'll see some real competition in this space.
Microsoft on Wednesday unveiled its plans to bring live television services from 40 world-leading TV and entertainment providers to the Xbox 360 video game console in over 20 countries this holiday se...
