You do realize what lies at the heart of Android, right?

'!', I thank you. You got some wheels turning in my head. I realized how to kinda sum up what MS is doing. They're making the transition from selling products to a model like Twatter has always been -- showing ads or selling add-ons to monetizable users. :wink:

I think they're afraid that if they do it all at once, users might walk away. It's funny that Google's beaten them to a shelled-out husk of an OS (I'm not saying that's necessarily a bad thing, in some ways it can be easier to 'secure' for example), but I wonder if MS believes it will be able to continue sell Windows... :think:

Oh Gawd. Apple and Gen Z

The FT report says younger consumers are concerned about being socially ostracised for not having an iPhone. This drives Gen Z’ers to buy an iPhone, which leads them to buy other Apple products and services. This is leading to a growing market share for the Cupertino firm, across multiple product categories.
I remember Apple's slogan 'Think different'. Now I guess it's:
You don't want to be different from the other cattle that believe our corporate bullshit, do you?
Given the price of their junk, I guess the 'YOU DON'T WANT EVERYONE TO THINK YOU'RE A POOR FAG DO YA?' applies too.

Yep, if you are literally are embarrassed by the green bubble of had to haz an iPhone because your friend has one, you're a dumb sack shit. That is all. Have a nice day!
