Hindsight that is never forgotten

I love the ‘net. Only on the net can you say things and expect them to haunt you months, or even years later. Hell, I may be eating crow in a matter of minutes for calling Mary Jo Foley an idiot for claiming Apple licensed Exchange ActiveSync – and I’ll be proud to do it.

Somehow though, I get the feeling that Steve Ballmer will not be so proud of this 2:20 clip when Friday rolls around.

I have to make a very clear observation at this point.

This is a man who is absolutely proud of the Motorola Q. He’s proud of how much it costs and even goes so far as to call it innovative. This was January of this year (2007, in case this blog is around that long). As a person who carries a Motorola Q every day but barely uses it…

…BECAUSE THE IDIOTS THAT SHIPPED A BATTERY WITH THAT PIECE OF DOGSHIT DIDN’T REALIZE I MIGHT WANT TO SPEND MORE THAN 10 GODDAMN MINUTES ON THE PHONE, OR THAT I MIGHT BE ANNOYED BY THE FACT THAT IT FEELS SO INCLINED TO RETURN TO THE HOME SCREEN EVERY 10 SECONDS NO MATTER WHAT THE HELL I TELL IT TO DO… NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT WINDOWS MOBILE IS MORE CRASH HAPPY THAN WINDOWS VISTA EXCUSE ME… WINDOWS MILLENNIUM 2007…

Oh… my… God. Truly, this is a CEO out of touch with the world. Folks… run… run from Microsoft. They are killing you. You sad people pods are nothing but coccoons for your brains to swell up and burst from the terrible reality known as a Microsoft universe… those games that you so proud drown in… they are nothing but a hook sent there to make you swallow the wrong pill (sorry, I don’t remember the colors)… run… please run…
