Then perhaps you shouldn't use the words "no piracy".Originally Posted by Mystere
I think it's strange to claim to know that every single person in the industry believes Apple is headed in one direction. How could you possibly know that to begin with? But now you're saying that it's a fact that I'm ignoring. Very strange. Perhaps you know literally every person in the tech industry and have done a survey though, lol.....Originally Posted by Mystere
But still, your argument makes no sense to begin with, because having one OS that runs on a range of devices does not mean it has to be a walled garden.
"May" means "are" in Mystere World it seems, but if Dell do bring out an RT tablet, it will probably flop just like the rest of them. When even the platform creator is talking huge multi-million dollar right-offs because they can't even give the things away, you can't really by that optimistic about Dell's chances.Originally Posted by Mystere
Please don't come back and break my post down again unless you're going to provide actual facts instead of claims you cannot possibly substantiate and some "maybes". You're just arguing for the sake of it and half the time you're addressing things that aren't even relevant to the parts of my post that you're quoting.
Edit: I didn't notice that you got banned. Really sorry to see that. Sincerely. I see you're green indicator is still on so I'll leave this to read.
I stated that it will probably be eliminated. I never stated my approval or disapproval of it, nor my entire view on the whole matter of which way the industry is headed. Frankly, I'm in a "limbo" state trying to gain facts on both systems by using them as to ultimately make a personal choice.
Of course it's no secret around here that I'm a big "Fanboi" of 8, 8.1, and MS. So far I think it to be a rather ingenious and efficient system. In fact, I'm one of those that liked it right off the bat. It didn't take me long to see the big picture of what MS is attempting to accomplish with it.
If you've read my posts this past year, you'll see that I'm more concerned about total control over the OS in general. For one, it must be native to the device, not thin client. I don't mind cloud-centric services within the OS as long as a user has choices of whether to use them or not or to turn them off or not. In 8 and 8.1 > So far so good as far as I can tell.
Don't like the ads in e.g. in the Bing or NBC apps? Don't pay attention to them, use different apps, or don't use them at all. Don't like the ads on a web page in your browser? Don't pay attention to them, turn them off, or don't use your browser. I don't see much of a difference myself.
No, a lot of Store apps won't sync to function like Desktop apps, but so won't a browser if one is not "plugged in". Does anyone know anyone that is not "plugged in" these days? I don't think so. Therefore we and the industry have become reliant and the industry will continue to introduce software that is cloud-centric by nature. The natural way to sell such is via a cloud-centric store. Let's face it > The writing is on the wall > The tech giants are all headed for this system because the market has voted that way. If one has ever bought or obtained for free a "walled-gardened store" app and used it, then one has voted to promote such systems.
So far as the desktop platform systems go > Will they survive? It doesn't look that way to me today, but then again, what do I know.
BTW, interesting discussion going, gentlemen. I think we're keeping it civil thus far. Admin hasn't stepped in anyway.
Funny how you accept those industry observers opinions as fact, yet the ones you disagree with you ignore.
The only reason MS took write offs is because they have the new version coming.
WarningLet's keep this friendly shall we.
