Even Microsoft thinks Apple "Just Works"

Post by djsynchro » Fri Jul 02, 2010 4:06 pm

The documents, which Microsoft has declined to comment on or authenticate, also talk about plans to give Windows a more iPad-like response time through new power management settings.
In particular, one slide titled "How Apple Does It: A Virtuous Cycle," talks about the need for simplicity in design. "Apple brand is known for high quality, uncomplicated, 'it just works,'" the slide says, adding that "This is something people will pay for!"

This is the indisputable nail in the Microsoft coffin!
Bill! go and play some homage to Steve for Christ' sake! Steve is the chosen son, and you are the spawn that the devil saw as his illegitimate and ignored offspring from a one-night stand gone very bad!
It's the ever-present Eternal Truth!

I was just reading the same article the other day...The guys @ Microsoft are just so determined to PWN every aspect of the market, however their over achieving attitude will lead to failure. For example Microsoft's KIN "smart phone" is having the plug pulled on it so they can try a newer avenue. Its estimated only roughly 10,000 were sold while Apples iPhone 4 sold 1.7 MILLION units in the first 3 DAYS. 8O

:lol: hardly, Steve's been lookin like quite the douche/flop lately, rivaling even Tom Cruise jumpin up and down on Oprah's couch.

i'm not arguing with phone sales here or even iPads... just the schmuckosity of Steve as of late.

That STILL get's a Thumbs Up from me, and as such is a landmark other actors should recognize. Didn't he also do a stunt of sorts on Letterman?! If that's the Bar, Steve just raises it by his mere omnipresence.

We are all slaves to one conglomerate or another! 1984 is the future.

Huh? Microsoft have been using Apple as a beta tester for their software for over 25 years now?
It's not even the first time they've been caught doing this? Hell they paid good money for stealing code! 8)

Honestly it's a fool proof plan, and old news.
