Here's The Deal.

    Everything is changing! Mass production is now mass customization. Differentiation rules. Marketers must understand emotions, social patterns, and media consumption in order to design the next generation of products and messages. Advertising is dynamic communication. It's not easy keeping up. Fortunately, we love this shit.

    It's good to see that some bloggers see through this guys BS. I'm amazed that he is the CEO of Microsoft. What a clown! What was Bill Gates thinking? I think the iPhone(s) will give Microsoft a run for their money starting in June and he knows it.


    Its funney that they claim to be the "peoples" pc company but he makes it clear in this vid that microsoft focuses most of their attention to buisines people and not the average user.


    Ballmer's comments aren't complete BS - there are many, many valid criticisms of the iPhone's functionality and business model. However, this is pretty much par for the course when ANY Apple product is announced. I seem to recall this list being presented when the first iPod was announced:

    1.) Battery life too short
    2.) Only works with Mac
    3.) Only works with iTunes
    4.) Doesn't support enough audio codecs
    5.) Closed system for development
    6.) Too expensive
    7.) Nobody wants this product
    8.) Competitors have a larger hard drive
    9.) Only connects through Firewire

    Obviously, Apple should have just shelved the iPod and never let it see the light day, right? It was such a bad product.

    Two simple things that will determine the success of the iPhone:

    1.) User satisfaction (do they say 'I LOVE THIS PHONE')

    2.) Fashion (will this become THE phone that every teenager, young professional, and fashion-conscious American wants)

    Beyond that - any limits/restrictions/issues with the functionality of the iPhone are completely irrelevant. Apple will end up selling 10 million of these before Xmas 2007.

    I think Ballmer's wrong when he calls iPhone "the most expensive phone ever." I can't put my finger on it, but in one review defending Apple's price point, several other higher-cost phones that are currently in production were cited. I think one of them was a $700 HP.


    Vertu makes phones that range in price from $5,750 to $26,550 so Ballmer really doesn't know what he is talking about. So what else is new?


    The thing that is absolutely incrediable is that "this guy" (Balmer) is the CEO of the biggest company in America --look at the way he carries himself --has always carried himself, his persona --he acts like that goofy neighbor that wanders around in house in pajamas all day. I mean he is a goof. Most biz executives at least know to carry themselves with aura of being substantial --this guy, you can easily imagine being in an episode of "The Office" --you know I'm right, admit it. ha ha

    I purchased Microsoft Streets and Trips 2005 on CD a couple of years ago and would
    like to upgrade to Streets & Trips 2007. My laptop does NOT have a DVD, only a CD
    and I cannot find the software on CD. Can anyone tell me if there is
    somewhere that I can purchase it on CD. Failing that, if I purchase
    the program on
    DVD, will it work to I have a computer shop or someone with an
    auxilary DVD load the DVD onto my computer or does the DVD have to
    stay in the computer for the program to work?
