Microsoft still the best..??

Well Even I have said about so many things about how Google is developing to be a biggie..But some industry analysts chuck away saying we’ll see how well Google matches with Biggies like Microsoft and Yahoo.

Their theory is not far fetched one rather they juz smoke out the facts.Google is showing attrocious growth and the stock’s value in NASDAQ is shooting up even people expect it to reach 2000$ (???) thats real Faaaaar fetched atleast for now.

One fact about Google’s income was missed by many,most of its current burgeoning account is from Google’s Adsense program or rather from the google ads you find in every nook and corner of the internet.Analysts feel that unlike Microsoft or Yahoo the regular software and web giants,Google has a long way to go.Google has been successful with Search service and all its products are also very popular juz because of the search service.But its revenues are from very much the unsung segements like ads and sponsors.Google has very few to show in terms of profits from its products. And though Google leads in search business by along way Microsoft(33% in email) and Yahoo(31% in email) are still the best No1 and 2 terms of email and chat services(yahoo 1 and MS 2) whereas Gmail accounts for juz 8%.Google is all about innovation but after sometime everyone will like to have a share of your innovation.Just the way it happened to Apple and Sony.If Google doesnt learn to play the game like Microsoft ..the bubble may break much sooner….

'Intel. Leap ahead' and Gone are days of Pentium.

In one of the most stunning overhaul of this decade intel did a big remake to boost up its image.Everyone who is familiar with the int’e’l the lowered e Logo might see something new.The most popular “Intel Inside” has also been dumped.Replaced by a progressive “Leap ahead” and a tagline which goes like “praise in public and criticise in private????”(i got the meaning apt, but some words may differ) But the never b4 heard old one was still funny.I will try to remember it next time.

CEO Paul Ottellini and the marketing Directors new announcement was a big surprise to the topline managers in the hall.Virtually Ottellini has signalled the end to the Barret’s old Intel.Intel started primarily as a semiconductor devices manufacturer, specialized into a computer microprocessor manufacturer.Now Intel takes a big new step divesting itself into Mobile and all consumer electronics chip maker.It is cool to know that we may have a Nokia with intel, with Intel experience in the microprocessor industry we can certainly expect the Mobile devices performance increasing by notches and a whole new level of competition .

With the new move the days of pentium is also over now only it is either DUO(dual core processors) and Solo(single core processors). And now intel is betting on its new innovation of Viiv which will give a real TV life experience and integration in your PC..virtually everyone of us will be having those video processors only the big TV companies own now…

ntel inside Apple outside !!

The Big transition of the Apple has happened, Now Apple iMac has intel under its hood.Steve Jobs pointed that the new iMacs are twice as fater than their immediate predecessors, but detractors point to the fact that the benchmark tests dont work in reality.
But then I always wondered if the Mac's G5 processors are really good then why didn't the G5's become as popular as the Intel's or AMD's.If the G5 was good steve would have introduced it to the market and tried to compete against the Intel.But now the reason for going Intel is obvious, rather than wasting a feature packed PC like the Mac by using a slower processor, get the best one in the market.And moreover we can never expect the G5 to match up with the improvements introduced by the processor specific companies, and as the days go the gap between mainstream processors with the apple version wud only increase..So probably now is better than never.
Well now the processor side imac has been unbundled, lets wait to see if a similar transition in software side wud occur.........Till then probably I will wait to have a Mac.

Google vs Bush

Well the fight is on between justice department and google,the justice department wants all the major search engines to provide the search data for every week to them.And the news is that except google everyone has accepted the proposal.Microsoft,Yahoo and others havent made any noise about this, meaning there’s no problem.The justice dept wants this data for a federal suit to prove in the court how easily porn content are available to children.

Though it might look reasonable, but in reality Google fears that the sensitive data it collects once shared will make the users afraid, simply its against its privacy policy.And once people come to know someone is watching and data is shared,people who prefer privacy will look for other options.And moreover the Fed suite for which data is needed is not a new one, everyone knows about how easily porn content is available on net,and the search majors may be asked to provide some survey results about the particular subject.Afterall the search majors are the biggest software companies and best in business. Well Bush will agree to this only if thats what their primary intention about the sensitive data. Already therPublishe is a talk about US control over internet and once US tries to take over the net we can expect more 9/11 in the cyberworld…….
