Bill Gates reveals mistake that helped Google overtake Microsoft

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has said his “greatest mistake ever” was allowing Googles Android, rather than his own company, to become the worlds biggest mobile operating system.

 

 

The billionaire philanthropist said mobile phone software was a “natural thing for Microsoft to win”, but his own “mismanagement” meant Google was able to grab a larger market share of the mobile phone market.

Googles Android is installed on just over 75 per cent of mobile devices, according to figures from Statcounter published in May, while Microsoft has just a 0.24 per cent share of the same market.

Speaking on stage at a Village Global event in the US, Mr. Gates said “in the software world, in particular for platforms, these are winner-take-all markets”

“The greatest mistake ever is whatever mismanagement I engaged in that caused Microsoft not to be what Android is,” he said.

“That is, Android is the standard phone platform – non-Apple – phone platform. That was a natural thing for Microsoft to win.

“It really is winner-take-all. If you are there with half as many apps or 90 per cent as many apps youre on your way to complete doom – there is room for exactly one non-Apple operating system and whats that worth? 400 billion? That would be transferred from company G to company M.”

Google acquired Android in 2005 for around 50 million US dollars, launching the first commercial Android-powered phone – the HTC Dream – in 2008.

 

Microsoft did launch its own mobile operating system – Windows Mobile – however, the software failed to catch on despite rebooting it as Windows Phone.

At the start of 2019, Microsoft announced that support for the mobile operating system, now known as Windows 10 Mobile, would end in December this year.

The company has previously suggested it has found it hard to convince app developers to work on the platform because the volume of users of the operating system was too low.

Microsoft has since focused its efforts on its cloud computing business and the Windows 10 operating system used on desktop computers and laptops.

But despite “having made one of the greatest mistakes of all time”, Mr. Gates said Microsoft is still “very strong”.

“We are a leading company,” he said.

“If we had gotten that one right, we would be the leading company, but oh well.”

RenoReno Omokri, an author and lawyer showered praises on Igbo people; an ethnic group native to the present-day south-central and southeastern Nigeria for their hard work.
Reno Omokri claims he has never seen an Igbo beggar before saying the Igbo ethnic group are the most enterprising and African ethnic nationality that have produced more US dollar multimillionaires.
He wrote;
The Igbo are an African ethnic nationality that has produced more US dollar multimillionaires, per capita, through their apprenticeship system, than @HarvardHBS
Business School. Igbos prove that WHO you know takes you farther than WHAT you know

Since I was born till today, I‘ve NEVER seen an Igbo BEGGAR. Africa should study this most enterprising ethnic nationality. Nigeria had her fastest GFP growth in 2003-2007 and 2011-2015 under the hand of an Igbo @NOIweala. It can’t be a COINCIDENCE!

Nigerians STRUGGLE in Nigeria, but when they RELOCATE to America, they become the MOST SUCCESSFUL IMMIGRANTS (not one of the most, the most, BAR NONE, according to US census bureau). Nigerians prove that LOCATION affects your VOCATION and OCCUPATION

If a FISH befriends a FROG, the FROG will take it out of WATER and the FISH will FAIL, because God made it to SUCCEED only in WATER. Many people FAIL because they befriended FROGS that took them out of the natural HABITAT God made them to THRIVE in.

SkalesSkales has called out Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the founder of Common Wealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) over the alleged rape saga between the ‘man of God’ and Timi Dakolo’s wife; Busola.

The singer took to his Twitter page hours ago to blast the pastor, calling him a “fake man of god” as well as ridicule his church. Skales called the church a bully after news of the pastor sending police to Timi Dakolo’s house yesterday to get his wife arrested surfaced on the internet.
Skales wrote; “Total example of a church dat bullies the public @cozaglobal and the scam of a pastor…. Gucci scam pastor… I Stand against that pastor fatoyinbo biodun stop lieing with the word of God using gov. Connection to bully people .. Coza no be church na scam smh. ok I’m done.”

He also added, “Commonwealth of Zion Assembly. see name of church it’s the end time for real Coza Chrch na scam …. baba don order Gucci wey him go use today’s offering go buy.”News
You all would recall we brought you news about Timi Dakolo raising an alarm on his Instagram page yesterday after police stormed his house to try to whisk himself and his wife to Abuja on account that Pastor Fatoyinbo has levelled some allegations towards them.

This has however made a lot of celebrities furious as to why the pastor would take such action even when he hasn’t answered to the allegations levelled against him by Busola that he raped her about 2 decades ago.

This could be the major reason Skales has decided to try to ‘tear apart’ the pastor, expressing his anger in the most daring manner.

This however is looking to be a wrong move for Skales as social media users have started to lambast him for making such move when it has not been established that the pastor truly did what Busola accused him of. Some have opined that Skales showed a lack of sensitiveness as even though criticsm of the pastor to a large extent is allowed, he could have been constructive about it or be intelligent about the process.
