  • Blog Post: A Sea of Change

    Momentum is a fickle friend. When you have it you don’t want to lose it and when you don’t have it you’ll give almost anything to get it. I’d say Microsoft has the momentum because wow, what a week this is shaping up to be. First, Windows 8 releases to manufacturing (RTM), then...
