#MSFT #Bing search share exceeded 19% in US. That's a very strong revenue growth engine.
Retweeted by Brian S HallBiggest earnings news today? Significant Bing earnings growth.Tim Cook: iPad enterprise share is high/penetration is low. Me: most businesses have tried iPads, but haven't redesigned processes for them
Retweeted by Brian S Hall@jandawson Cook is very schooled at giving out only the numbers that make you think different.The “new to iPad” number (technically, new to tablets) was 50% this time. Given huge installed base (~180m) 6.5m upgrades is tiny

An iPhone phablet will cut deep into iPad sales but that's no longer a concern.@inafried ASPin case what I witness means anything at allIn public, I regularly see Samsung tablets and almost never see iPads or Amazon Kindles (of any sort). In smartphones, S4 & S5 and iPhones.Such a great, diverse cross-section of America that regularly attends A's games. Pleased Athletics plan to stay in Oakland. Only in America.With iPad sales continuing to fall, and Cook deathly afraid of reducing prices, and iPhone sales still rising, iPhone phablet will happen.Check out @ThePushNews for insight and *analysis* of tech trends.

There will be an iPhone phablet. Even if it kills Jony Ive.Apple has held off releasing an iPhone phablet for fear it would crush iPad sales. That fear no longer exists, as iPad sales keep tanking.Microsoft CFO Amy Hood says ex all charges and Nokia related items, Microsoft eps was 66 cents a share.
