What is Microsoft’s problem with Android apps?

What is Microsoft's problem with Android apps?

Suddenly, Microsoft is a major developer for iOS. The software giant better known for Windows dropped three iOS apps or updates in just two days, and there are rumors of more coming (e.g. Office). But what about Android? “What about Android?” you ask, surprised. “Why should Microsoft give a hoot’s fart app about Android? Google and open source are reasons enough why not Android”. Yes, but Microsoft makes heaps of money from Android. Nothing from iOS.

Firefox 4 delayed: Is it ready for prime time?

Firefox 4 delayed: Is it ready for prime time?

By Scott M. Fulton, III, Net1News

It should have been a week of relatively good news for the Mozilla organization. The former senior vice president for mobility at enterprise database producer Sybase, Gary Kovacs, signed on to become Mozilla’s new CEO next month, replacing John Lilly and serving under Foundation chairperson Mitchell Baker. Having headed up Sybase’s mobility and integration efforts during that company’s buyout by European software giant SAP last summer, Kovacs is certain to inject a much-needed dose of corporate prestige and structure in to the organization.

Microsoft published its earnings for the fourth quarter of 2010, and the software company reported revenue of .04 billion, a 22% increase over the same period last year, and 0 million ahead of Apple which also had a record-setting quarter.

Apple exceeded Wall Street’s estimates and primed suspicion that the company may finally overtake Microsoft in revenue, but Microsoft also beat Wall Street expectations this quarter, so Microsoft remains the leader.

A window closes on Microsoft

A window closes on Microsoft

By Carmi Levy, Betanews

The sound you heard after HP’s purchase of Palm last week was that of Windows reaching the top of the roller coaster and beginning its inevitable trip back down. Microsoft had absolutely nothing to do with the transaction, of course, but the ripple effects of the buyout foreshadow a significant shift of one of Microsoft’s most stalwart partners away from its core products.
