Solu: A flawed attempt to reinvent the PC

Because for Solu to succeed, Lawson and his team need to convince people to ditch an operating system they’re used to, on hardware they trust, and instead go for a mobile device that does less than the mobile you currently have in your pocket. The software subscription service is nice, but there’s no word on whether major developers actually want to do business on Solu’s terms.

Harsh, but I’m inclined to agree. I just don’t see a situation in which I’d prefer this over a phone/tablet/laptop.

Nest – a 'crazy idea' at a crazy price?

What kind of business could you buy for $3.2bn – or about £2bn? Well, in the UK you could pick up the construction giant Balfour Beatty, which employs more than 10,000 people, or the only remaining High Street electronics chain Dixons, with a workforce of more than 30,000. Or, if you are Google, that is what you can pay for a tiny connected home business employing just 300 people.
