    QUOTE : Microsoft considers new name for search: Kumo

    Microsoft Corp. has said marketing teams were hard at work fixing the company's Web search image.
    As a brand, Live Search wasn't working.But Kumo? What?

    Microsoft's search team posted a screen shot of a redesigned search site, called Kumo, on its blog last week. A leaked memo from the team's technical leader, Satya Nadella, described Kumo.com as a test program that can only be accessed from computers on Microsoft's network. The company confirmed the memo's authenticity after it appeared on Cnet News.

    Online dictionaries reveal kumo to mean "spider" or "cloud" in Japanese (but it is also the Swedish word for a Finnish town). Kumo.com, as depicted in the screen shot, offers few hints as to the definition Microsoft has in mind.

    But there's not enough in a name to get Microsoft out of its search pit, Rosoff said.
    "It's necessary, but not sufficient," Rosoff said, adding that the softwaremaker must also come up with an interface that is significantly different from Google.

    l invite an offer from M$.

    A brand package for their Search Technology. The idea is very simple, utterly practical and a marketer's dream.
    A Bell concept. l am not expensive, the idea's take less than five minutes to put across and gel. Quite serious l am, with my offer. Microsoft is reviewing, upgrading and finalising an advance in Serch .
    l can help.
    l expect a business based on search to be able to 'FIND' this post and respond.
    Funny old world. Sysopt members can pm.

    A reasonable offer and idea's are yours. Good, they are. Priceless.
    l look forward to hearing from you.

    The centre of financial woes today, evolved from a very logical and clever extension of the original Bank of England 'Double your Money' concept into a revolving door of current account Financing that works perfectly well - in conservative fashion - honouring the underlying basis of TRUST. It is called LEVERAGING. The process was hijacked and corrupted by, of all people Insurers who saw vast potential to profit under lax regulation. They actively went at it as a soluble problem and here we are today.

    There really isn't anyway around it, unless you personalise linux at home. l was immensly fond of BEOS. It was a decent OS. M$ is a monopoly, not that bad really unless you actually buy the software of the shelf. lt is expensive, way ott - still they gotta pay all those shareholders some how. How else did that mountain of cash pile up.They are massively over priced and seem to waste the stuff like water.
    The Yahoo! offer still makes me chuckle. A tiny few share holders would have laughed all the way to heaven but that deal, as it turned out could have killed them. lt would have been the disaster. There hasn't really been a bad word said about 7. l skipped Vista for personal use, glad that l did. lt ticked me off big time with hardware probs. We'll see with 7. l wonder what name they have in mind. VistaII - maybe just call it Windows this time. Marketing can get daft when it isn't focused.

    Lord, idle time, eh! - l tell you what l wish...........

    That the mobile system, would truly come together with the Wintel hardware as a client. Literally wrap up a mobile with the OS on the production line and just get it right first time. Crack the mobile browsing hardware design that lets you carry a properly usable browser about in your pocket. Whack everything UC into it running as client to the desktop OS and the corporates are re-equiping for productivity over night. Yer desktop in yer pocket.

    Get on with it then, I'll be a shareholder if you can pull that one off.
    I've got an idea, dead easy, I'm amazed no one has thought of it yet, I'll pm you Hero.
    Now go back to the Ducimus thread, and listen to the tune I posted for you.

    I listened.............. and shed tears. Hope you are well soon. 'ave a larf..

    Modern Economic theory explained
    Greeks are dimensions of risk involved in taking a position in an option (or other derivative). Each risk variable is a result of an imperfect assumption or relationship of the option with another underlying variable. Various sophisticated hedging strategies are used to neutralize or decrease the effects of each variable of risk.

    Neutralizing the effect of each variable requires substantial buying and selling and, as a result of such high transactions costs, many traders only make periodic attempts to rebalance their options portfolios. Which is why it is all falling apart. The HIDDEN costs - insurance which is a fail safe has become a dominant COST. INSANITY RULES. The insurance (derivatives) is destroying the business. Ha ha ha! - They are all so clever.


    With the exception of vega (which is not a Greek letter), each measure of risk is represented by a different letter of the Greek alphabet:

    Δ(Delta) represents the rate of change between the option's price and the underlying asset's price - in other words, price sensitivity.
    Θ(Theta) represents the rate of change between an option portfolio and time, or time sensitivity.
    Γ(Gamma) represents the rate of change between an option portfolio's delta and the underlying asset's price - in other words, second-order time price sensitivity.
    ϒ(Vega) represents the rate of change between an option portfolio's value and the underlying asset's volatility - in other words, sensitivity to volatility.
    ρ (Rho) represents the rate of change between an option portfolio's value and the interest rate, or sensitivity to the interest rate.


    *** We can all realise now, (hindsight is so easy) that VEGA is all important. The dominant factor is ignored.
    Here's a theory and set of rules to implement it................ hmmmmmmm
    Idiots have been at work. They still are.


    It is blatantly apparent that ϒ(Vega) is in disregard.
    Yup Vegas went on holiday and left the rest of us with a some vices.

    BURLINGAME, CALIF. - 04.23.08

    Late Tuesday, in response to questions from Forbes.com, an Apple spokesman said Apple has agreed to buy a boutique microprocessor design company called P.A. Semi. The company, which is known for its design of sophisticated, low-power chips, could spell a new future for Apple's flagship iPhone, and possibly iPod products as well. The 150-person chip company, P.A. Semi, was founded in 2003 by Dan Dobberpuhl, who was a lead designer for the well-regarded Alpha and StrongARM microprocessors developed by Digital Equipment in the 1990s. "Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not comment on our purposes and plans," said Apple (nasdaq: AAPL - news - people ) spokesman Steve Dowling. He declined to comment on the value of the deal, which a person familiar with the deal suggested was done for $278 million in cash. Apple is due to announce its quarterly earnings Wednesday. The decision to center the iPhone design around a chip that Apple could own marks a significant strategic choice by Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs, and is aimed at ensuring Apple can continue to differentiate its flagship phone as a raft of competitors flood the market. According to a source affiliated with the chip company, Jobs and Senior Vice President Tony Fadell led the tiny group of executives who spearheaded the acquisition, which included negotiations that took place in Jobs' home. Apple's choice is a blow for chip maker Intel, which has been trying to convince Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple to rely on Intel's chips--particularly its latest low-power line up, called Atom.

    Apple has been rightfully proud of the iPhone, and has predicted that it will sell 10 million of the devices by the end of 2008. But that success has had a cost, too: Virtually every mobile-phone maker is scrambling to develop an iPhone-like device. Jobs has long asserted that Apple's greatest strengths lay in its software and in its ability to integrate hardware and software. The result: Machines that combine appealing design with an intuitive user interface, such as the iPhone. But interfaces--as Jobs well knows--can be mirrored, if not copied.

    Few in the high-tech world are as wary as Jobs of turning control of core components over to a partner. The PC industry has been his proving ground; over the past three decades, he has watched numerous PC makers that have built their products around Intel's microprocessors wind up in fierce battles for narrower and narrower profit margins. Led by Intel Chief Executive Paul Otellini, Intel is developing a line of chips that it believes can become as central to handheld computing devices as its "x86" chips have been to the personal computer industry. Intel has said it aims to create somewhat different lines of Atom processors tailored to different classes of applications, such as consumer devices, low-cost notebook computers and set-top boxes. The first of these designs is slated to begin shipping by the middle of this year; another by year's end. But that doesn't mean Intel wants to create a unique chip for every customer--even for a charismatic customer like Apple. Apple first got to know the designers at P.A. Semi about three years ago, when the computer maker still used PowerPC chips in its Macintosh computers. Dobberpuhl and his team, which includes engineers who had a hand in designing powerful chips, including Intel's Itanium, Advanced Micro Devices' (nyse: AMD - news - people ) Operton and Sun Microsystems' (nasdaq: JAVA - news - people ) UltraSparc. Dobberpuhl was also the lead designer on a DEC chip project called StrongARM, which was ultimately folded into Intel after DEC collapsed. Intel tried to use the design as the basis of chips for the smart-phone industry, but eventually sold that group to Marvell.

    Dobberpuhl wanted to design an enormously powerful chip, based on the PowerPC architecture, that used little power. When Apple decided to quit using the PowerPC chip in favor of Intel microprocessors, the conversations with P.A. Semi petered out. In February 2007, P.A. Semi debuted a 64-bit dual core microprocessor which the company asserted was 300% more efficient than any comparable chips. It consumes only 5 to 13 watts running at 2 gigahertz. Telecommunications, networking and wireless companies embraced P.A. Semi's work. Meanwhile, Apple found a collection of other chip partners to build the guts of its iPhone. One key: According to technology market research firm iSuppli, South Korean electronics giant Samsung supplies the iPhone's applications processor. Like a number of companies cranking out processors for mobile phones, such as Texas Instruments, Samsung's processor is based on a design licensed from Cambridge, U.K.-based ARM. Apple was among the three companies, also including Acorn Computers and VLSI Technology, that formed ARM in 1990. Texas Instruments, Qualcomm and Broadcom are also fighting for share in the low-power applications processors for smart phones and mobile gizmos based on ARM designs, according to iSuppli analyst Tina Teng, with Texas Instruments leading the pack. These companies are building increasingly sophisticated processors, however, targeted at bigger and more powerful devices. "Companies like Qualcomm are trying to diversify themselves and move away from being a pure wireless company into these ultra mobile PCs, or ultra mobile Internet devices," Teng says. Trevor Yancey, vice president of technology at IC Insights of Scottsdale, Ariz., sees ARM-based designs giving Intel a tough fight as Intel tries to push beyond notebooks and into smaller and smaller devices. "That's going to be a tough battle. If you look at the ARM core--where it has been and where it has come from--the ARM core is very well entrenched in those kinds of applications," Yancey said. "I think the gap between the two is certainly closing, but ARM is still developing at a fast pace."

    Although no current Apple products use P.A. Semi chips, Apple executives kept a close eye on the work of the start-up. Talks of acquiring P.A. Semi began only in the past few weeks. Employees have been notified of the deal.It will likely take at least a year before products incorporating P.A. Semi designs are ready. The company's flagship chip is at the heart of heavy-duty computing systems, such as those sold by NEC's (nasdaq: NIPNY - news - people ) storage division. But the design philosophy--hefty processing power and frugal power use--are in concert with Apple's directions. Although Apple plans to continue supporting P.A. Semi's current customers, insiders suggest that Jobs plans to use future P.A. Semi chips exclusively within Apple products. At that point, executives believe the company will have created a unique asset--a powerful microprocessor that sips power lightly and so can support just about any imaginable applications Apple's software gurus can imagine.

    "I think the branding [concept] is important and has been one of their biggest problems, plus they've never really advertised it [search]," Matt Rosoff, a lead analyst at Directions on Microsoft, told InternetNews.com.
