It needed to be this early in order to hit the back to school sales. Still, the early delivery is an incredible technical feat.

Now, about the phone version of Windows 10...

"For developers who have invested a lifetime of learning and mastering Microsoft’s platforms, Android compatibility is a slap in the face. This sends the message that they have wasted their time and that it’s time to move on to a more successful platform "

Microsoft Build will turn into a wake if this happens. The OS/2 strategy killed IBM. Blackberry's ability to run Android apps didn't save that platform either.

Microsoft will most likely announce this week that it will enable customers to run Android apps on their Windows 10 phones, tablets and PCs.

I think we're way past Microsoft saying"Trust us. We know what we're doing."

There's going to be a revolt if the message at Build is that you need to recode your apps after asking developers to do it in Windows Phone 7 and again in 8.

Question: Do Democrats see the economy as struggling, or doing great? I've seen numerous claims by Obama that he's done a great job in growing the economy, but Hillary said in her announcement that people are still struggling from the 2008 Recession. Which is it?

Is it that Obama has tried to do as much as he could, but the Republicans are blocking him? President Bill Clinton had to deal with a Republican controlled House and Senate, and he still managed to get things done. President Obama has had over seven years to get the economy fixed, and Hillary is claiming it's still not fixed yet. Obama is either incompetent, or his policies will never work.

If the economic problems are due to Obama's policies, what would Hillary do differently? Hillary was part of Obama's administration. She's also taken a lot of money from billionaires through her foundation. If the economic problems are due to Obama's incompetence, then what has Hillary done to show that she can work with Republicans better than Obama has?

I still find the phrase "why hasn't Obama fixed the economy yet" funny.

Do people really think an complex economic system can be fixed in a mere 8 years?

This is awesome! It actually works!

I'm no fan of April Fools, but this one is pretty good: Microsoft today released MS-DOS Mobile, a new Windows Phone app "built from the ground up"!

49ers Discussion  - 
 
I'm not feeling good about this draft. Here's where the 49ers drafted versus how the players were projected:

Round 1: Arik Armstead (DT): As projected
Round 2: Jaquiski Tartt (SS): Reach
Round 3: Eli Harold (OLB): Steal
Round 4: Blake Bell (TE): Reach
Round 4: Mike Davis (RB): As projected
Round 4: DeAndre Smelter (WR): Reach
Round 5: Bradley Pinion (P): Reach
Round 6: Ian Silberman (OG): Reach
Round 7: Trenton Brown (OG): As projected
Round 7: Rory 'Busta' Anderson (TE): Steal

We also didn't draft a true CB. Blaake may move Jaquiski Tartt over to CB, but the player has questionable coverage skills. The 49ers didn't bring in Tartt to work out in order to evaluate his skills.

Tampa Bay has had months to think about their draft pick. Why do they need another 15 minutes to figure it out?

The US hasn't threatened Google with antitrust, probably as Google has been a very heavily proponent of the Obama administration.

The reality is that Android never would have gained the market share it has without Google illegally leveraging its services to pay and support Android. It's the same thing Microsoft was guilty of in the 1990s by leveraging their operating system to support Internet Explorer over Netscape.

Europe's anti-trust investigation may widen to include other Google services.

"The magazine's publisher, Jann S. Wenner, however, told The New York Times that Erdely would continue to write for the magazine and that neither her editor nor Dana would be fired."

This is business as usual for the main stream media since there's no accountability. No apologies are necessary if the readership is high.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Rolling Stone magazine retracted a widely discredited article about an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia after a top journalism school issued a scathing report Sunday concluding it had failed to meet proper journalistic standards.

"What Reid is saying is that it’s entirely immaterial whether what he said about Romney and his taxes was true. All that mattered was that Romney didn’t win."

I'm stunned. I'm ashamed to think that any leader - Democrat or Republican - would go to any lengths to win an election at any cost.

Tags: #Democrats   #MittRomeny   #HarryReid  
Harry Reid says he doesn't regret spreading false charges about Mitt Romney's taxes during the 2012 presidential campaign. It matters that we're so cynical about our political system that we're willing to accept it.

Bloomberg had only Romney's trust tax returns, not the tax returns from Romney himself. All of those reports are years old.

Did you follow Obama's birth certificate drama? People complained that the certificate was fake, so Obama produced the long form. People still complained that it wasn't enough. It will never be enough to convince the skeptics.

The same thing goes with Romney. He could produce the documents, but it would never be enough. If Senator Reid did have the evidence that Romney paid less, why didn't he produce the evidence? Without evidence, it's not fact.

Story
Introduction
I'm cynical. I'm also a bit of a Microsoft fanboi, but I'm more than ready to admit their short comings. Talking about other technology is fun as well.

I'm also kind of a smart ass, but nothing I say is meant to be taken too seriously. Feel free to disagree or point out where I'm wrong.

If you like reading the stuff I'm interested in (but I don't understand why) feel free to add me. I'm not really looking for numbers, just good conversations.
