Microsoft's Asimov System To Monitor Users' Machines In Real Time

Stormwatch A tip to Microsoft (161 comments)

Hey, Microsoft... if you really want to know what people like and dislike about your system, how about you try and LISTEN to what they say? Have someone lurking here on Slashdot, in no time he could see hundreds of comments bashing in detail the countless flaws on your shitty interface designs. Shit, have some of your designers actually having a fucking clue about usability, that'd help too.

Report: Microsoft To Buy Minecraft Studio For $2bn+

Stormwatch Re:HALO (368 comments)

That was the first proposal, yes. The second one, the one that everyone actually wanted, was supposed to be a third person shooter, set in an open world, with online team multiplayer.

Stormwatch Re:Microsoft cannot compete in the marketplace... (159 comments)

After Windows 8, that's quite debatable.

Microsoft's Nokia Plans Come Into Better Focus

Stormwatch Re:Elop (149 comments)

Go read all that Tomi Ahonen (former Nokia exec, consultant on mobile market) wrote about this fiasco. When you put all the pieces together, there is a very clear case of breach of fiduciary duty. It's either that, or the most insane case of business incompetence in the history of capitalism.

Stormwatch Re:It's a funny world (149 comments)

It's not killing Symbian that angers me (although the timing was horrible and hurt Nokia immensely as well). It's killing MeeGo. It had a better chance of being a successful "third ecosystem" than Windows Phone.

Stormwatch writes "Like we hadn't enough reasons to hate Sony... Lik-Sang.com, possibly world's best-renowned online videogame store, has gone out of business after multiple legal actions by electronics behemoth Sony. This sets a very dangerous precedent for import retailers everywhere."
