When will Microsoft get it together?

by PsychologyDoc    Jan 7, 2011, 8:03 AM

Bringing a 3G, non-production model to CES, with a "not so ready for prime time" OS... simply stunning.

Did anyone see the interview Steve Ballmer gave today with Maria Bartiromo today? Pathetic. The CEO of Microsoft dodged every legitimate question she asked about burgeoning tech, trying to pioneer "something" to compete in the handheld market and do anything, anything at all to kick start their 10 year flat stock price. He had absolutely no concrete answers. This is why they have been late to the party for the past 10 years.

Aren't you people tired of waiting for a company that should be a major player to innovate rather than... well, I'll refrain from using a word that rhymes with innovate for the act that MSFT is doing and I'll say "salivate" instead. I do like the new Windows 7 concept, but not having a truly, fully developed OS to market by now, with 4G, is just unacceptable. I'm talking to you, Ballmer. You could take a lesson from all the griping people did about Apple not having "cut and paste" until later versions of the iPhone. I'm not an Apple user, I'm a frustrated tech consumer mystified by a company having the resources MSFT does and neglecting the opportunity, "again," to finally get back in the game and increase their presence in the marketplace. Selling 1.5 million units since it launched is nice, but if they stall on updates and/or carriers drag their feet... well, draw your own conclusion.

Happy New Year everyone and I'd be interested to read what others think of MSFT's inferior offering thus far with Windows 7.
