    Billionaires don't take financial advise from thousandaires.
    Why do you insist on posting the opinions of dumbasses?
    What expertise do you think the writer of that article possess?
    He can type--whoopie!!

    Um, he's a writer for a well known and respected computer magazine
    called PC World. You are a nobody. Sell MS stock short.

    Seems you've been predicting the downfall of MS for some time.
    The "writer" is a nobody.
    He makes a living typing.
    His job is to sell advertising space by writing opinion.
    It's entertainment.
    Nobody is reading that mag to make investment decisions.
    Tiny little nerds read it, so they can discuss subjects far above them.

    Care to address what was written in the article or will you continue to
    amateurishly hurl unfounded ad hominems at the author?

    FACT: MS has lost the boat with mobile, game consoles and slates. Do you
    own a Zune? LOL!
    FACT: Everything is going to the cloud and MS has missed the boat there too.
    FACT: PC centric business models are a thing of the past.

    Care to refute this or just come up with another personal insult?

    Yes, my wife does(I bought it for her).
    Just got another $50 card for it yesterday.
    It plays music just fine.
    Has for 2 years.
    She likes the Zune PC software, too.
    She isn't an iDumbass.

    > FACT: Everything is going to the cloud and MS has missed the boat there

    Then, you didn't read it.
    MS makes money from cloud tech.

    > FACT: PC centric business models are a thing of the past.
    >


    No they aren't.
    Says people who just think that is true.
    Why I would care, I don't know, as it won't change the way I run my
    business.
    The cloud won't rain on my parade.

    > Care to refute this or just come up with another personal insult?

    I haven't insulted anyone.
    Writers write opinion---it's just a fact.
    Just because something is written and put up on a website, doesn't make it
    set in stone.
    Ask Obama.

    So what?
    Zune sold about 56 million units , iPod about 225 million.
    The iPod is more popular.
    It makes no influence upon me.
    I'm not engaged in a popularity contest with all my purchases.
    I own a DeWalt DW717 miter saw---no idea if it is the top seller.
    Don't care.
    All my power tools are DeWalt...cause I like that brand.

    Usually you follow that type of shit- thought you'd get it, dork.
    Obama's administartion fired a Dept of Ag woman for a video of her
    posted online that was taken out of context.

    People post "opinion" on the web, often skewed to their agenda.
    Like your "writer".

    See?
    Get it?

    Nothing.
    It's not my line of work.
    Death, with no training whatsoever, figured out computers all by himself.
    Took a couple of months ... that way I don't have to pay the type of morons
    that post stupid shit like you do.
    I don't read that stupid fuckin magazine either... what "Jeff" thinks is
    about as important as what my cat thinks.

    "My work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, CNET, Macworld, and Wired. My
    articles have won four journalism awards from the American Society of Business
    Publication Editors (2009, 2008, 2007, 2000), and one Western Publishing Association
    Maggie Award (2009)."

    It appears someone/some agency thiks he's good enough to win awards....not that I
    am aware of any of those....but.......

    The article didn't make any far-fetched accusations, as only the title was a it
    'sensationalized'.

    Everything else said was true.............

    ".......And there's little doubt that Windows 7 is a hit. More than 10 percent of all PCs
    worldwide run Windows 7, which is the fastest-selling operating system in history,
    Redmond claims. And while Microsoft's third-quarter revenue of $14.5 billion rose a
    modest 6 percent over the same period a year earlier, profits shot up an impressive 35
    percent."

    ".....Redmond has stumbled badly in the cell phone arena. Its Windows Mobile 6.x
    platform is essentially moribund. Know anyone who uses a Windows phone anymore?
    (Yes, I know they're out there, but their numbers are dwindling fast.) The company
    recently scrapped its social media-oriented Kin device, which arrived on the mobile
    scene at least a year too late. And while Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7
    software does look promising, devices that run it won't debut for a few more months."

    "......Meanwhile, Microsoft continues to milk its Windows PC cash cow for all its worth.
    When it comes to the desktop and laptop market (both business and consumer),
    Redmond rules with its series of dominant products, including Windows 7 and the
    latest versions of Office, Exchange, and SharePoint."

    "......But that could quickly change if low-cost laptop and tablet devices running one of
    Google's mobile operating systems--Android or the upcoming Chrome OS--prove
    popular for businesses."

    I don't know about this one........MS has a history of winning back customers by simply
    nearly giving stuff away....like the Nigerian OLPC fianco.

    and.... "......Microsoft's PC-centric ways should be a cause for alarm in Redmond.
    It's no surprise that the company's biggest revenue growth is in its Windows and
    Windows Live division, while its Online Services and Entertainment and Devices
    divisions are relatively flat. Microsoft sees its Bing search, Xbox Live, and budding
    cloud services as areas of growth--but they're not there yet.

    Redmond's revenue stream is too desktop-centric for its own good. Despite its
    Windows-oriented success, the company is a big question mark moving forward."

    The last statement above is the closing opinion, and well, not totally off-base, at this
    time.

    I didn't see any bold proclamations that MS is going under soon.
