The Search Engine of Mostly Wrong-ness

This is right up my alley. It appeals to my love of random data, my professional expertise with effective search engine queries and my affinity for telling people they were wrong. Hey, I think that if you don’t know, you probably shouldn’t speculate. Unless it’s your job to speculate. In which case, I would recommend…


Most annoying marketers (brands, not people)

There used to be weird newspaper advertisement (oh, the ones of the long past, advertising things that you really should NOT use nor talk about). Then there were and still are the horrible jingly TV ads. Git outta mah head!  What I have noticed lately are the emarketing ones, they bombard you and then try to…


Hot-hot hot college majors for technology

I majored in business administration and graduated from the Entrepreneur Program. So we shant pretend that I have any kind of a technical background (but I can write an awesome little piece of html that embeds videos in my blog postings….oh, wait, I cut and paste that awesome little piece of html).</check me out> Haven’t…


Virtualization win

I like to win. Hmm, I think we may have already established that. Nice work Hyper-V team. (And all the other folks in sales and services that made this happen)

I hate to do this but…(I’m lying, I don’t hate to do this)

Windows 7 is doing great! Win 7 market share up, XP down and everything else stable or down. Holla! Sorry, I’ll try to limit the self-promotion. It’s just that it’s getting a little harder these days. I’m just sayin’. Now just git that Windows Phone 7 into mah hands!  


Movies as PR

Now a Google movie? You have got to be kidding me. “The intention is to be sympathetic to Sergey and Larry…” So says the producer. Well, he gets points for  transparency. Transparency is good, but that’s one little tidbit I think he could have kept to himself. Because I’m not paying $10 to sit in a…


The House Advantage

We have several speaker series’ here at Microsoft. In the past few weeks, I have seen Pete Carroll and Jeffrey Ma speak. Now, I love me some Pete Carroll (love him or hate him, it’s still an obsession). But I have to say that Jeffrey Ma’s is the session that really excited me the most…


Microsoft Mobile Games Studio

There are three things I want you to know about this: 1) I think that annoucing something like the introduction of a new studio via a job description is excellent PR, if it was intentional. See interwebz, sometimes leaks can be good. 2) There’s a guy referenced in this article whose last name is Booty….


The "real" you…

In a world where the only way to identify the “real” you is by the bar code stamped on your forehead. Above your one eye. Thanks Google and global warming.
