Talkin’ loud and sayin’ nothing 20 Jun, 2012
This story, “Microsoft. Kicks. Ass.” has received a lot of link love since it came out yesterday. Lots of people waxing lyrical on twatter, and generally getting in a tizz about it.
It says nothing. Here’s a typical paragraph:
The Torx screws on the back are proudly visible, proclaiming to anyone who wants: touch me, open me, change me, adapt me. The charcoal grey is an updated pre-Apple beige. The multiplicity of ports sing: connect with me, send data to me, accessorize me, enhance me.
Sweet baby Moses. Utter wank.
Anyway, setting aside nonsense like this, the tech, the tech looks like it could be pretty good for MS, and may well win legion new fans. As ever, the devil is in the detail: I just hope MS execute right to the end—they didn’t quite get there with Windows Phone OS, although it was a decent enough start.
