Funny Post of the Day

Google voiced in their concerns today regarding the limitations placed on browsers for Windows RT, which is the ARM version of Windows 8.  They said

We share the concerns Mozilla has raised regarding the Windows 8 environment restricting user choice and innovation. We’ve always welcomed innovation in the browser space across all platforms and strongly believe that having great competitors makes us all work harder. In the end, consumers and developers benefit the most from robust competition.

Which is hilarious because, as John Gruber jokingly puts it,

Microsoft is free to ship a fully-functional version of IE for Chrome OS, right?

I think the only wrongdoing of Microsoft is that they had the whole antirust case brought against them with IE and Windows.  Apple can do it because they never were a threat and weren’t anticompetitive.  Now it’s really biting Microsoft in the ass.

Karl Denninger again making inaccurate preditions

I’ve heard a bit of this guy.  Said RIM will beat Apple or something…

Now he’s wondering how Apple could possibly sell 35 million iPhones if AT&T & Verizon only sold 7.4 million.  It’s as if there’s a world outside the US there that is selling 27.6 million.  To him, that’s impossible.

Right from the page:

Where did the other 27.6 million sales come from?

It’s called subtraction folks…..

It’s actually called narrow-mindedness.  There IS a world outside the USA, Karl.
