The other side of the conversation.
Yes I am on both sides of the announcement. First I try to be technology agnostic, although I do have my own personal biases – the devices I carry and encourage others to use.
But the technology door is open – if only just a crack.
Smart money take the long distance view of the convergence of media and communications. When I see all those “tiles” popping up on TV shows, TV commercials, and on the screens of Microsoft products I think that they may just have launched something that WILL last.
After all, Apple is getting stale.
Android is one dimensional.
Amazon sells it all and doesn’t care which.
And Google keeps on searching and delivering content . . . to everything.
