Amazon Prime Video is Now on Apple TV

Amazon Prime Video is now available on the Apple TV. This could be an important moment for Apple and Amazon. What with Amazon preparing a show that is a prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Amazon will get some paying customers out of the Apple users, who have a good amount of disposable income. It will also allow Apple to have a more fully formed TV offering for its users.

Microsoft Invests and Does Well

Microsoft are investing $1 billion into security. This is a very good move. Microsoft are doing very well at present. The focus on cloud computing has been a marvellous strategy, and this investment will help it offer a robust and secure cloud and enterprise offering.

The company has also diversified into mobile with its own suite of mobile apps and premium hardware, with its own computers. Its mobile strategy has been paying off big time, but I still am a bit reticent to praise its hardware efforts. It still feels like a mistake to try to take on Apple and other companies in the hardware stakes, though if they get a little success it may be worth it.

Poem: What Next for The World?

What next for the world,

What next for us?

What next for the world,

Is it written on a bus?

What next for the world,

What next for the good?

What next for the bad,

What will happen –

What should?

Could,

Would,

Be,

Is it time for us to live the future free?

Innovation is the name of the game when it comes to making their vehicles desirable from premium customers; they have to be ahead of the times, not just at pace with the times.
