Sunday Tech Bits

9 out of those 12 slides are purely speculation. "If this happens, then this would cascade into this, and into that, and into that..."

Yeah. IF the sun goes out tomorrow, people would need more flashlights. And they'd get cold. And thirsty, because water would freeze. etc etc.

Other than some dipshit company that led 8500 employees talk it into buying them all iPads (how's the productivity going now, idiots?) few companies are going to be switch their workforce to tablets exclusively, simply because people can't get shit done on those. So Office and Exchange and several other products are going to be just fine.

Companies have been trying to come up with a better version of Excel since 1995, and nobody can really get close. Libre Office's Calc is decent, but still nowhere near good enough for the high-end Excel users. (the fact that Excel is such a massive driving force for Office really makes me wonder why the fuck there are still bugs in it from version 2000...)

However, all this said, under Balmer Microsoft has gone from the dominant tech company that had Apple under its thumb to almost an after-thought. Their stock has basically been FLAT for that entire period. How does this guy not get fucking launched out of the building??
