Microsoft Needs a Catch-Up Artist

hardeep1singh Hire Stephen Elop (406 comments)

He is the guy who can turn things around for Microsoft. After all, he's probably the only one outside the company who believes in Microsoft strategy. Nokia shareholders will not mind at all.

Maybe Steve Ballmer Doesn't Deserve the Hate

hardeep1singh Re: About your Thesis... (240 comments)

I'd say office will live and prosper till there's no viable alternative to Excel. There are departments that practically live on it and Google doesn't even try to compete.

Google Demands Microsoft Pull YouTube App For WP8

hardeep1singh Google started it (716 comments)

Dear Google, It was you who decided Windows 8 and WP8 customer base is too tiny for you to care about so you won't be making any apps for them. Now that somebody has made an app for them using the API's publicly provided by you, you should stop crying. How difficult it is for you to either fix your API or make an app yourself that works the way you want it to.

Microsoft To Apple: Don't Take Your Normal 30% Cut of Office For iOS

hardeep1singh increase the price to cover for 30% (724 comments)

Providing a cloud service has its costs and a 30% cut is too steep for something that just lists your app. If Apple doesn't listen just increase the price of the service offered through App store by 30% to cover the cost and offer the service at a regular price if the same user decides to visit your website from a PC or a non Apple device.

Kepler Spots "Perfectly Aligned" Alien Worlds

hardeep1singh sour grapes (73 comments)

If only mechanical engineering had some breakthrough that could let us create engines that travel at light speed but sadly even light speed wouldn't be good enough to travel the whole wonderland. I hope we don't end up just looking at all these planets like sour grapes.

India OKs Censoring Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo

hardeep1singh They just need money (146 comments)

The Govt officials are just looking for bribes. That's why they're calling these company's representatives. Once the representatives come and give them what they need, they would just forget what they said about censoring the web. Sadly, that's how things work in my country.

Windows Phone Homebrew Hits a Snag

hardeep1singh Lumia isn't a real Nokia (185 comments)

The real reason Lumia fell flat is that Nokia users can't relate to it. It may be good for iphone/android upgraders but it doesn't offer half the features Nokia/Symbian users are accustomed to. Whether its FM transmitter or USB host, HDMI out or Xenon flash, you name it and Lumia doesn't have it. Sticking an 8mpx camera with a smaller sensor than N8 didn't help matters either.

iPhone 3G coming to India? Where is the 3G?

hardeep1singh hardeep1singh writes  |  about 6 years ago

hardeep1singh writes "With all the hype surrounding the launch on iphone 3G in Indian market on August 22, 2008. Apple and the networks have cleverly hidden the fact that there are still no 3G services available in India. Even if you buy an Iphone 3G you would end up using it on a 3G network. You have to dig through the terms and conditions page on Airtels website to see this statement, Some of the product features are not available in India or in certain service areas. 'Some of the features and services are dependent on the type of network the customer is in eg 3G, EDGE, GPRS, GSM. 3G is not available presently in India.'"
