That's exactly how they priced it. 32GB iPad = $599. 32GB Surface with Keyboard = $599. 32 GB Surface without Keyboard = $499.
said more accurately: How to make sure that only people who think like me can express themselves publicly. Hope these guys stay out of politics.
I used to have a Palm Treo running Windows Mobile. I hated it so much I bought my first Apple product. The iPhone was infinitely better! Traded the iPhone in for a Windows Phone. Now I could never go back to the iPhone, the Windows Phone is a significant upgrade! Haven't tried Android yet, but I have no complaints with my Focus so I can't see switching.
Mine too! Also worked on my brothers HD7.
No, it's the builder fault
;) Obviously, they should have thought about EVERY possible way my house could have been broken into before they build it!
In other words, it wouldn't be shocking if the Win8 ARM tablet you buy comes with a free 60 day trial of Office 365.
By twist, I am referring to the fullness of Microsoft's overarching strategy of making piles of money (which I don't begrudge them) on Windows and Office. I see a relationship between Office 365 and a version of Windows that doesn't run desktop Office. Most people aren't going to fret that their $400 (guessing) Win8 ARM tablet doesn't run Visual Studio or Photoshop, but their going to want some kind of access to Office. If they don't care about Office they'll probably just buy an iPad.
Is everyone forgetting about Office 365? I bet it will run on Win8/ARM. Could be an interesting twist for home users and enterprise users who don't need full on Office.
He has lots of insight on the subject. Which was: the economics of business models.
Does anyone else see the potential for a Kinect style interface?
Microsoft doesn't make smart phones. They make phone platforms. Windows Phone is not Windows Mobile in any way shape or form.
I arrived at AT&T 10 minutes after they opened and they were sold out the 4 phones they had. I was the first person to get on the waiting list. There were 5 people behind me waiting to get on the list. They did receive one more phone that day and I got it. I suspect the demand was higher that day than the available inventory. As for the phone, I love it. Showed it to my wife and kids (14 & 16). The kids raved about it, and my wife (not a technology nerd) was surprised she like it so much versus her iPhone (3G). The UI is very slick, usable and responsive. This is not your typical Microsoft version 1 product. It feels a lot more like it came from a first class consumer electronics company than a business software company.
It is potential because it cannot be represented in reality. To be able to represent it in reality, and make it an actual inifinity you would have to write all the nines. In which case you would never finish the equation due to restrictions of nature.
See Aristotle: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potential_infinity
0.999... used in an equation is not actual inifinity, it is potential infinity. At best 1 potentially equals 0.999... Hardly proof!
