A remarkable revolution has been occurring as the influence of smart phones increases.
At the beginning of 2009 Microsoft Windows virtually monopolised access to the internet with their Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.
However, since 2009, each successive wave of Microsoft Windows released into the marketplace has failed to recapture the glory days of Windows XP.
The decline of Microsoft Windows [and the rise of Android] on the internet is particularly noticeable in Asia and Africa.
Europe and North America are not far behind.
Overall, it appears consumers prefer to buy utility devices [such as mobile phones, tablets and WiFi gismos] and then pay monthly subscription fees for internet access and internet content [such as movies and television].
Unfortunately, for Microsoft, there is only a limited subset of consumers who are willing to pay an additional monthly subscription fee for Microsoft Office [aka Office 365]; let alone a monthly subscription fee for Microsoft Windows.
Think about getting in the right lane because missing the exit might be expensive.
Microsoft is becoming increasingly desperate to lure consumers onto Windows 10 whilst consumers are increasingly saying: ”don’t do it”.
During a broadcast on Wednesday morning, Meteorologist Matinka Slater of KCCI 8 News did manage to act much calmer, however, when a Windows 10 pop-up-shaped ‘hurricane’ appeared to be advancing on the state of Iowa.
Slater quickly got rid of the pesky popup and tried to continue with her forecast, but Windows 10 doesn’t give up easy though with the remainder of the images on screen stalling.
“It’s that Windows 10… don’t do it,” Slate jokes.

This suggests the enterprise market is going to be paying a lot more to Microsoft in the coming months [and years] unless they [also] start saying: ”don’t do it”.
It also suggests consumers are slowly being trained to limit their comprehension skills to simple 140-character slogans and messages.
Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called “tweets”.
Facebook has a number of features with which users may interact.
They include the Wall, a space on every user’s profile page that allows friends to post messages for the user to see; Pokes, which allows users to send a virtual “poke” to each other (a notification then tells a user that they have been poked); Photos, that allows users to upload albums and photos; and Status, which allows users to inform their friends of their whereabouts and actions.
Such is the advance of technology.
