A couple of days ago, my esteemed colleague Damon found some humor in the snafus during Bill Gates’ speech at the CES.
Microsoft products not working is just accepted as the way it is. Imagine Coke demonstrating a new can, but being unable to open it; Ford a new car that stalls after starting. You can’t.
Then today, I came across, this post on Microsoft Watch
Microsoft’s anti-virus/anti-spyware strategy is taking shape. Sources say Redmond’s prepping a fee-based bundle, which could go beta soon.
Something doesn’t make sense here – if Ford sells cars where tires explode, it is front page news, and lawsuits ensue. Microsoft sells a system which has holes and problems, and it tries to build another money gouging service on top of that. As they say, get them hooked first…
