Apple vs. Microsoft, By the Numbers

arivera71 Analyst's expectations are far fetched (296 comments)

Analyst's are assuming that just because Microsoft partnered with Nokia their smartphone businesses will come back from the dead by gravity!!! Guess what... I don't think that's ever going to happen. Both Microsoft and Nokia have demonstrated that they are dinosaurs and they don't understand new technologies. Even worst, they don't understand consumers!!!

Chrome Complicates Mozilla/Google Love-In

arivera71 Re:Ideally... (307 comments)

You are missing the point here. Of course in the short term this is going to affect Firefox users mostly. That's because Firefox users would be more likely to try new things thank IE users. The long term scenario is all about cloud dominance and Google Apps. Why did google build their own mobile operating system and not a desktop operating system based on Linux? Google wants to make sure they have 100% control over the user experience with their Google Apps. In this case it makes sense that they have their own browser and they can make sure all their apps run perfectly in chrome. The operating system here is not important because it is the browser what controls the Cloud Environment. All they need to do is make sure they port Chrome to as many operating systems as possible. The mobile environment is completely different. They built Android so they can do the same thing. But in a mobile environment Web Applications are not enough. You need to build Native Applications that connect with the Cloud and control the User Experience as much as possible (Think Apple). This is all a long term scenario and I think the success of Chrome (and maybe Android) is tied to the success of the Google Apps and Google's Cloud computing plans.
