Apple doesn't have a search engine. - Murray Macdonald
Spotlight - Kevin Marks
AOL has an agreement to use google search too - Matthew Voshell
Danny is modulating in a weird way….cant fix on my end - Tina Chase Gillmor
Apple should buy Bing. - Murray Macdonald
doesn't iOS default to bing now? - Kevin Marks
oops, I launched Apple Maps on the Macbook and skype connection dropped out - Kevin Marks
Steve you run Safari? Chrome for the win. - Murray Macdonald
Bing is design by default. Devoid of all soul. - Moe Glitz
So Apple uses Siri which uses Bing, and doesn't talk about because they hate Google. And Siri also uses Nuance for Speech and doesn't talk about that either. - Charlie Isaacs
Where's Opera ;-)? - Hessel van Tuinen
John's right to prod, gleaned via core Bing team, Microsoft investing in the underlying database platform as a future NoSQL on SQL server (same database on a database pattern as Force.com) - clive boulton
Google Search and their "mega package" of apps in it...is "to much" I think it's time for a "Browser" clear intuitive, great UX...fast,smooth... - Hessel van Tuinen
Yes. I want office on all devices. Visio on Android and iOS would be great. Project too. - Murray Macdonald
First time i got in touch with Apple Support in 5 years: After i installed Mavericks...I got the ahhhh, blue-screen, Microsoft feeling..;-( - Hessel van Tuinen
Are people still into so called cloud computing? - Frank Paynter
I have a lot of friends and relatives that are looking at Android devices now because they hate IOS7 -- "why do I have to use so many keystrokes to do stuff. They changed everything." - Charlie Isaacs
lets define "dead" again - Tina Chase Gillmor
eMail is dead - Charlie Isaacs
Frank: yes! :-) - Robert Scoble
oops maybe not so much - Charlie Isaacs
everything has a use case - Laura Norvig
Office remains a staple albeit unexciting. Everyone takes it for granted. Clients send me Office files all the time. - Murray Macdonald
Take your average large enterprise with 10,000 seats... every one of them has an Office license. - Frank Paynter
Notice MSR Dyrad discontinued, yet SQL server continues with Horntonworks Hadoop partnership. Bing incubating new family of graph databases (a definite maybe) - clive boulton
+1 Laura - Frank Paynter
people have very little idea whether thay have an app or a browser involved - Kevin Marks
Do you book your flights on an App or a website? - Murray Macdonald
same discussion back in the days: fiber, dail up..faster...faster..;-) - Hessel van Tuinen
There are certain pain points, such as creating very sophisticated layout, etc. in word or excel that google docs and spreadsheets can't solve (yet). - Laura Norvig
I started playing with "ok google" for the google search app on iOS and its awesome; thier speech rec is AMAZING compared to siri its not even close - Matthew Voshell
This is your browser. This is your browser on drugs (camera pan to Internet Explorer) - Charlie Isaacs
If Google are so open, why are they forcing Users to join the 'dead' Google+ to leave a comment on YouTube? Kevin. - Moe Glitz
Sounds like Apple's old playground strategy - Frank Paynter
Moe: Single sign on makes sense to me. - Murray Macdonald
because youtube comments are a byword for toxic waste and trolling and they finally noticed? - Kevin Marks
Docs is great for working togehter, but formating wise.. it awful :/ - Matthew Voshell
Here kid, your office could use a few nice Macs... first one's free! - Frank Paynter
Lawyers will never stop using Office. Track changes is critical. - Murray Macdonald
because how much money would they earn by improving it? - Laura Norvig
They said that about WordPerfect, Murray! - John Taschek
Our custom workflow can be accessed on nearly any browser. We're a small business and it would be difficult and costly for us to develop apps that support all devices in use (BYOD). - Alex de Soto
Moe, because they want better comments - Scott Jordan
yes John Taschek is right. Why not more detailed duos environment form Google? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Y'all keep talking about Word and Google Docs but forget the fact that PowerPoint is still a very powerful/useful tool. - Nir Ben Yona
convenience over sophistication, is what the people crave, low latency UX apps win (usually) - clive boulton
True Murray & Kevin. But think they out to get more people on Google +. - Moe Glitz
Now that we know that the cloud has no privacy (NSA) can the legal types even use it for sensitive private data? Are Medical records in the cloud private? If I email a patent idea to a patent lawyer who uses gmail have I disclosed it? - Murray Macdonald
+1 Murray - Frank Paynter
You can't put Ads on Google Docs - Moe Glitz
I know a lot of app developers still planning their stuff in PowerPoint (besides the new tools). - Nir Ben Yona
How is Microsoft improving Office, especially for the Mac? - Alex de Soto
JOhn Taschek is right - Tina Chase Gillmor
John is correct, for example the Graphing element of the spreadsheet is bad - Scott Jordan
No ads on Google docs right? - Alex de Soto
Show me a word processor with comparable image handling. Despite it's shortcomings Image handling in Word is best of breed. I wish other document editors handled images as well as word. - Murray Macdonald
Lots of wireframe approaches but in my experience not a lot of people using Powerpoint - Frank Paynter
no ads on G+, but they will charge for it if you want it for your company - Kevin Marks
@Frank: Yeah, it's one of the *other* tools. - Nir Ben Yona
Google Docs is a hobby - Moe Glitz
@John - totally right absolutely on - Docs is a #FAIL on any platform - except for embeddable forms via spreadsheets...those rock...but I wouldn't try and do it via a phone. ;) - J.C. Bouvier
How many of the 1 billion users Facebook has are enterprise clients? - Scott Jordan
Murray, I think you want to go to Adobe for a competitive doc management and design alternative - Frank Paynter
Docs is great - Kevin Marks
in a Microsoft (windows/Office/SQLServer shop I worked , most people shared docs through Google Drive/Docs rather than "Sharepoint" - Dale Lature
Word is a hideous rathole where documents go to die - Kevin Marks
@Kevin - editing a doc in Google docs, vs. Word, is misery... - J.C. Bouvier
Frank: As a professional you need something your partners and clients have and can use. - Murray Macdonald
Kevin - Docs should be better. We should have to fall back on MS office - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Kevin - ha ha, yah - last Pages edition is pretty solid across the board and def better than Google's... - J.C. Bouvier
+1 Dale, true dat Murray - Frank Paynter
Bret Taylor talked about that this week - everyone has their own weird set of shortcuts they use in word - Kevin Marks
"<fill in any document management system here> is a hideous rathole where documents go to die" Kevin :) - Charlie Isaacs
Google Human Centipede - Matthew Voshell

What do you guys think of Bonofa's : cube7.com they are launching and already planned the iPO launch.. - Hessel van Tuinen
So where is Apple in all this Google / Microsoft Docs argument - Scott Jordan
I don't understand the youtube hookup at all. I now get TWO emails when someone comments on a video. Or something like that. - Laura Norvig
I don't think you can apply business rules and workflow to github last time I checked :) - Charlie Isaacs
Brit security dev pissed off with NSAs SSL on / SSL off games ups Googles crypto (still pissed) https://plus.google.com/u... - clive boulton
Who exactly chooses the next MS CEO? - Murray Macdonald
Bill G - clive boulton
Apple is making the default doc editor for iOS converge with MacOS - Kevin Marks
Ye adoes Gates come in Temp? - Matthew Voshell
Maybe Simon Cowell can do a Microsoft X-Factor Show. - Moe Glitz
Gates is already temping at Redmond - clive boulton
iOS internal apple converge? How incestuous is that? - Frank Paynter
that's its strength, charlie. Also, look at the salesforce github site sometime - it's an iceberg - 90% isn't public, still huge collboration - Kevin Marks
MS should buy Tesla - Frank Paynter
I love exchange and lync. Best of breed. - Murray Macdonald
shudder, Murray - Kevin Marks
What is better than Lync for voice, presence and desktop sharing? What is better than Exchange as a private enterprise email server? - Murray Macdonald
yes, Tesla is on fire right now. Oops, bad choice of words - Charlie Isaacs
does it work on anything I own, Murray? - Kevin Marks
I wish MSFT would make a Lync Mac desktop client... - J.C. Bouvier
they should hire Elop at MS since he knows how to manage failure so well #Nokia - Charlie Isaacs
+1 Charlie - Frank Paynter
Bill G is spending time working with the product groups during the transition. This speaks volumes. - clive boulton
Lync DOES have a mac desktop client. - Murray Macdonald
macos, android, chomeos ios - Kevin Marks
Hangouts works on all of them - Kevin Marks
and Windows - Kevin Marks
London Fucking Matters - Moe Glitz
Aren't China and India bigger markets? Where's the growth opportunity? - Murray Macdonald
Love it when Danny and Scoble go at it. Did they decide to wear green just for the show? It brings out the red in their faces. - Alex de Soto
At least Robert and Danny agreed on something today, they both chose green shirts - Charlie Isaacs

Qualcom - Frank Paynter
corners boys - Tina Chase Gillmor
Warner Brothers - Alex de Soto
OC kicks ass - Frank Paynter
HootSuite, Linux, PHP, EA, etc... - Murray Macdonald
San Francisco is a great testing playground. - Nir Ben Yona
Disney - Frank Paynter
Disney won LA first :) #Disneyland - Charlie Isaacs
Qualcom? - Frank Paynter
haha Frank my feed must be faster :) - Charlie Isaacs
"San Francisco. In line for posh coffee, people discuss their startups. Outside in the excrement-reeking street, sick people harass you." - Laurie Penny - Kevin Marks
You wanna test things with early adopters first, and that's why San Francisco is so important. - Nir Ben Yona
Qualcomm is cool. But hardly a consumer company. - Robert Scoble
No surprise if Marc Benioff is on Microsoft's shortlist, although Mark Hurd more likely to accept. - clive boulton
Ohhhhh... consumer goods! - Frank Paynter
As cheap as that Robert? - Moe Glitz
Google went to Kansas to do high speed internet. Always test in a smaller market. - Alex de Soto
Let's talk shoes! - Frank Paynter
i think Danny just explained himself how he and Robert were in agreement and differing on semantics - Dale Lature
I believe Yammer started in LA -- but they were bought by MS so oh well - Charlie Isaacs
Bollywood controls the film industry. They have more money and viewers. Might you mean the english speaking film industry? - Murray Macdonald
Murray: right. The market with most of the profit. - Robert Scoble
Whatever happened to IBM? - Frank Paynter
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/technol... "New L.A. company Yammer wins TechCrunch50" - Charlie Isaacs
+1 Charlie - Frank Paynter
Does Samsung make those? - Frank Paynter
If not, Apple is already screwed too. - Frank Paynter
I know what I'd do if I were CEO of Microsoft: Step 1: Ensure that I have a HUGE severance package - Charlie Isaacs
Frank: right. Except that Apple has the marketshare in mobile. - Robert Scoble
I nominate Tim Cook for MSFT CEO spot. ;) - Alex de Soto
Yah, dump bing, focus offering Office365 for free on all mobile platforms and make a Xbox based tablet. - J.C. Bouvier
At least Yammer wrote Geddy before getting swolled up http://geddyjs.org/ - clive boulton
And chances are that Apple's stock is going up faster than Microsoft. - Robert Scoble
Elop has experience there, Charlie - Kevin Marks
Sadly, they've peaked, Robert. - Frank Paynter
Plus, working at Apple is cool. Working at Microsoft isn't. - Robert Scoble
Yammer started in San Francisco. - Robert Scoble
Frank: Apple has a watch and a TV product coming in next year. - Robert Scoble
+1 Kevin Robert - Charlie Isaacs
Robert: You're right about revenue but it isn't all about revenue, or the music industry would be all about Micheal Jackson. Hi-Hop came from the streets, not the boardroom, and now it's over 50%. There are more dimensions to an industry than revenue. (http://www.bubblews.com/news...) - Murray Macdonald
It might have peaked but a lot of future there. More than Microsoft. - Robert Scoble
I have a watch and a TV. So do you. - Frank Paynter
Frank: yes and I guarantee there will be lines for the Apple one. - Robert Scoble
I have a lot of watches in a drawer. I have time on 6 devices - Kevin Marks
Heh... sheeple - Frank Paynter
Sheeple are profitable. - Robert Scoble
How can I listen from my phone? - Brett Schulte from Android
Absolutely... but would you really want to work for a company locked into serving them? Might as well make cornflakes. - Frank Paynter
they should be innovating with the xbox platform - Tina Chase Gillmor
+1 Tina - Frank Paynter
MS should go deep on wearables and cars. - Murray Macdonald
Think the Apple TV will be more about a Display, rather than just a TV. Display's can be used inside Buildings, Offices, etc. With a TV, you only think of the Sitting Room. - Moe Glitz
multi weirdness with the Scoble feed - Tina Chase Gillmor
Who's moving holographic display and 3d printing forward? - Frank Paynter
MS needs to shut down all of their Enterprise Software groups, they don't get it - Charlie Isaacs
3D printing is better supported on Windows than any other OS. It has a built-in 3D print manager. Linux open-source is also strong for 3D printing. - Murray Macdonald
I see huge layoffs coming at Microsoft, they need to cut back to where they can innovate in the enterprise by grafting consumer technologies for reactive applications. - clive boulton
Robert, that's calling Chernobylizing - Charlie Isaacs
Move the MS Enterprise team to Fukushima then? - Frank Paynter
No not huge layoff Clive. It would send a bad, loud signal. too risky - Tina Chase Gillmor
Hard to believe, but there's still a lot of room for innovation around PIM + CRM + messaging. Outlook could be very cool - I would focus on kicking Salesforce's ass on integration of CRM data into the PIM + like a Yammer - sprinkle liberally with personal marketing automation and reporting up to reestablish enterprise dominance. - J.C. Bouvier
Steve's political metaphor was spot on - Charlie Isaacs
Too bad MS attacked their poster-child Pivotal rather than buying them. - Murray Macdonald
that, dear friends, is how our Danny gives us a "level" preshow - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina -- depends on Ballmer successor -- Mark Hurd? - clive boulton
Google drive syncs nicely across devices including Android. - Murray Macdonald
Hotel Microsoft. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave. - Moe Glitz
haha Tina :) are you on the level? - Charlie Isaacs
I want to know what happened to Kevin's backyard? - Charlie Isaacs
Working at MSR must be like Chinese water torture - clive boulton
Have a nice weekend all...l8r. - J.C. Bouvier
great show guys - Moe Glitz
you just did kevin - Moe Glitz
"The Rock is Crown property of the United Kingdom" -- wikipedia - Charlie Isaacs
T-Mo yay. - clive boulton

Thanks y'all. - Murray Macdonald
Adios! Thanks. - Alex de Soto

thanks everyone always - Tina Chase Gillmor
My backyard is fine, but someone nearby was using heavy machinery - Kevin Marks
:) Kevin you need one of those "Live filming in progress" hollywood signs - Charlie Isaacs
