Yes, I am nowhere financial analyst, heck I really can’t manage my monthly budget properly without my wife’s help, but I can tell something better than these Wall Street pundits and Apple and Google bitches aka, technology bloggers including The Verge, Engadget, Gizmodo etc. with my 2 decades + of my engineering and technology experience.

Update: Now with Microsoft Windows 10 (which would be released next year), Microsoft is going to show the world that the Windows Store Apps can run everywhere, scaling to the fit the size of the device like the mobile supported web sites that scale themselves nicely to work with any browser they are running on. That would be definitely showing the world that Write Once and Run Anywhere (of course on the Windows Platform) mantra chanted by now disappeared Sun Microsystems.
