Microsoft Malware? Microsoft Trying To Put Windows Phone OS On Android Devices

Why would anyone want an Android smartphone afflicted with Microsoft malware ( a/k/a Windows Phone OS)? If Microsoft wants to "try this," they should start with Nokia phones -- that might increase sales of the badly lagging Nokia Windows smartphones. On the other hand, Microsoft loves dueling operating systems on the same device (although users HATE the idiotic idea) --

Microsoft Reportedly Looking To Put Windows Phone On Android Devices, Starting With HTC | TechCrunch: "Microsoft has reached out to HTC to see if the company would be interested in adding Windows as a second OS to its Android handsets, a new report by Bloomberg claims. It isn’t clear exactly how the two operating systems would share the handset, in terms of allowing dual-booting or making a user choose a default at device setup, but it’s a sign Redmond may be thinking about pulling out all the stops to get people using its mobile OS. . . ."

BlackBerry Could Burn Through Most of Its Cash in Just Six Quarters - John Paczkowski - Mobile - AllThingsD: "Bernstein Research analyst Pierre Ferragu figures that BlackBerry will burn through most of its $2.6 billion in cash in the next 18 months, leaving it in a bad, bad way. “Because the company is losing users at a very high pace, has a stretched working capital and massive off-balance-sheet commitments that will turn into cash burn in the next four quarters, we believe BlackBerry is likely to burn close to $2 billion in the next six quarters on a standalone basis,” Ferragu said in a note to clients. And that, he believes, will lead the company into material liquidity problems." (read more at link above)

Ford: New Manufacturing Process Cuts Costs - The CIO Report - WSJ"Ford Motor Co. on Wednesday unveiled a new metal stamping process that replaces the use of custom, physical dies, or molds, with a software program and a robotic arm, cutting the cost of developing an automotive prototype part by 80% or more. The new process will not only slash some production times, but could provide the automotive giant with new opportunities for revenue growth, including allowing consumers to customize parts and “possibly” licensing the technology to companies in other industries. It is also helping the company pick up the pace of innovation and look past the immediate horizon." (read more at link above)

Google and the Transformation of Marketing - The CIO Report - WSJ" . . . Google in 2013, however, is sitting on a volcano. Its markets and products are growing at a dizzying pace. Google Analytics, a tool for monitoring website traffic and digital marketing activity, is a great illustration of the changes taking place in the marketing world, and of Google’s success at adapting to them. Some figures for changes in the recent past that were described at the conference include:
  • 2.7 billion Internet users—up from 1.5 billion 3 years ago ;
  • 4 billion videos watched on YouTube every day, up from 2 billion three years ago;
  • Mobile media consumption up 500% in 3 years;
  • 300% increase in video ads in the past year;
  • 200% increase in “programmatic buying” (algorithm-based matching of ads with websites and users) of digital ads in the past year. . . ."
