    Rise is something that is normally done by something. The Sun rises. You rise from your bed.

    Raise is something that is done to an object or thing. Though not many people use it.
    like for example " the dark knight rises "

    It's time for a coffee for me. Then I'll listen to either music or some interesting discussions that I have sitting on my hard drive.

    Then I need to email a bunch of people, go through a list and email more people. :P

    True. I have horrible hand writing. I should have been a doctor. :P

    Out of curiosity I checked to see when the first commercial fax machine came out - 1964! There were other inventions prior to that in the 1800s!

    Thinking about it some more, we probably would have had several project assistants typing stuff for us.

    But would probably be doing drawings by hand. :/

    Morning folks. Taking a low keyed approach today as I'm running late to work. It is always tough to jump back into the daily routine after having a visitor leave. Wish I had yesterday off to recover, but oh well...

    I think it's interesting with Modi being Prime Minister. Being Chief Minister of Gujarat and then elected Prime Minister to bring the same wealth to the rest of the country. It's like a guy who inherited all his money and now gives advice on how to become rich.

    Another fact. Let's leave politics aside. Windows phone is growing rapidly here.

    For Switzerland I have only found this: Mobile OS market share | Switzerland

    According to that iOS has still by far the highest market share with 58.8 percent over Android with 37.8. Windows Phone is around 2.5 %.

    For some reason in India it will be easy I think for WP to do well. With the US and other western countries, not so much. WP still lacks that eye catching phone and it still lacks way too many apps/games for most people, especially when they're addicted to a certain game or app. As well as when their friends have it.

    The biggest mountain to climb for WP is to get the younger generation onto it. They want all the apps their friends have. That's why WP is where it is. I'm not saying all young people are like this but majority are.

    If Apple brings out a real budget device and a large screen device Android and WP are in deep trouble. That's IMO.

    That reminds me of the hen and the egg. Or of a vicious circle. But I think to a big part it's Microsoft's own fault. They just didn't put any resources into WP7 back in the times. It was behind when it came out and it took them months only to add copy & paste. Then they decided to forgot all about it, as they just did with Windows Mobile, and release a copy of WP7 with NT kernel. In some regards it was even worse than WP7 (no FM radio just as an example, and then they brought FM radio back with a lot of fanfare in a GDR, it was ridiculous).

    Now they seem to put some effort into the OS, but it's so damn late that they seem to focus entirely on cheap hardware. That might help gain market share in developing countries, but it won't bring the prestige and reputation to gain market share in iOS countries where people usually buy high-end.

    Thing is, Nokia wasis popular in the developing world when it was just Nokia simply due to it's quality and what Symbian could do. WP basically destroyed that market as it was too locked down. It seems it's at a turning point now with that.

    Saying that, I agree they're pretty much paddling against a stream when it comes to everywhere else.

    Probably didn't know better. :P

    Now you've seen iOS and Android both you now have more of an idea what WP lacks. :P

    I'm still keeping an open mind about WP vs Android for me. I don't want anything to do with iPhone personally.
