Microsoft’s HTML5 strategy and open dialogue
I just finished reading Ed Bott’s fine post “ Microsoft fires back at critics of its HTML5 strategy” and not only did it educate me, it reminded me of how we differ in our approach to Apple when it comes to communication.

Trouble in the valley
I really just wanted to share this great image from the NY Times today though the story it supports is pretty compelling too. The PR statements are priceless and a battle built on emotion as the NYT suggests this one is means not all decisions will be rational. Should be intriguing to watch. One piece...

Cheat sheet: Google, Microsoft, Apple and Yahoo
Nick Bilton/The New York Times A great chart from Nick Bilton in the NY Times today that shows which businesses Google, Microsoft, Apple and Yahoo are in. What surprised me most is that only one row is unticked for Microsoft. We’re in a lot of business, some we do well in, others we have plenty...

No prizes for guessing where my day started today. I have a few of these fellows on my desk at home (not this size)….I’ll try to grab a few whilst here to hand out when I get back to the UK.

Microsoft does humour?
Is it just me who thinks The Independent has missed the point when Steve Ballmer holds up an HP slate and shows an apple on it? I mean seriously, is there any room for humour or is that only allowed in Steve Jobs’ keynotes? Thankfully Fortune has a sense of humour…

Microsoft in Style
I was flicking through the Sunday Times Style magazine yesterday – as one does to keep up with the fashionistas – and almost fell off my armchair and dropped my pipe when I saw Microsoft in the “going up” list at the front of the magazine. This is a sort of “hot or not” list of current trends which I...

Microsoft interactive installation
Damn…I was in Redmond last week and missed this interactive installation from MODE Studios even though I was in this building. I’m guessing it wasn’t on at the time as they’re no way I’d have missed this. Oh well, at least I got to see the huge underground car park garage :) thanks to Long

A.C. Milan WINS more games with Microsoft I was trawling through a few videos today during a slow few hours in the office (ha ha) and came across this one – a video about AC Milan and the Milan Lab.
