Scoble says “Google has set the high-water PR bar” when it comes to Google maps. Not So! People love this stuff, and simply write about it on their blogs. And I think Microsoft people shouldn’t point fingers, especially given Microsoft’s own spin machine.

  1. Are we reading the same article? He just praised that their products are so good others create PR for them. You have lately been wandering into Dvorak and Cringely territory with your posts. Bring it back to earth honey.

    I couldn’t disagree more. It’s obvious that Scoble wasn’t saying they were “spinning” something or any of the more negative connotations of the term PR.

    Excellent products that get the public talking about you is the highest form of PR.

    Let’s bring it back to Earth, Om. Just because you’re an Apple fanboy doesn’t mean you have to bash everything that MS does.
