Babwa Wawa: Where was Kinect on the mass market before Microsoft introduced it?
MightyPez: Market penetration is almost always about timing.
Uncle Tractor: kimmygibblershomework: And apple is no better than them about it but I am sure you probably know that.Not quite. The main difference between Apple and MS in this regard is that while Apple isn't the first to think of something, they're often (usually?) the first to get it right. The PC, the GUI, the MP3 player, the tablet, etc. MS, OTOH, will just crank out a shiatty imitation and use it's muscle to force it into the market. If Bill Gates hadn't pulled a fast one on IBM, Microsoft would just have been another forgotten IT company of the 70s and 80s.
The My Little Pony Killer: when the hell did Google become one of the cool kids?
Karne: Wholesale Ass: Karne: Wholesale Ass: Gee.I guess I'm going to have to move to remote island or become the next unibomber because people want to wear cameras on their heads.I can't wait for all the millions of new YouTube videos with kids wandering around the mall saying , 'THIS IS DA SHIAT!!'I'm just mad at whoever keeps forcing you to watch all those YouTube videos.I'm just mad at whoever thinks this is a legitimate retort considering that same person didn't force you to read my comment.But I didn't complain about your comment.I was just angry that someone somewhere keeps sitting you down, forcing you to type YouTube into your browser, search for those videos, pushes your finger down to click on the play button and holds your head straight so you have to see the entire clip.
Karne: Wholesale Ass: Gee.I guess I'm going to have to move to remote island or become the next unibomber because people want to wear cameras on their heads.I can't wait for all the millions of new YouTube videos with kids wandering around the mall saying , 'THIS IS DA SHIAT!!'I'm just mad at whoever keeps forcing you to watch all those YouTube videos.
dwrash: The state of innovation across the computer industry is pretty abysmal at the moment.
Marine1: Yeah. Don't you remember all of that console-based online gaming you did before the Xbox, too?
skozlaw: Becoming?I'm a bit confused.... at what point in time was Microsoft ever an innovator?
