[News] [Rival] Microsoft Uses Shills to Attack Google with 'Studies'

Hash: SHA1

Study: Office fights off Google Docs threat

,----[ Quote ]
| A study examining the behavior of more than 2,000 Internet users over a 
| six-month period shows that Microsoft Office did not lose any ground to the 
| free Web-based Google Apps.  
| The study -- conducted by ClickStream Technologies -- is good news for 
| Microsoft as it prepares to put a version of Office online, which will 
| directly compete with Google's offering.  


Burton Group did this too... then got paid handsomely by the Vole.

Who is "ClickStream Technologies"? Let's find out.

The CEO is from Microsoft.

The so-called study is based on Windows-only malware on a small sample. Classic
Microsoft Slog!

"Working behind the scenes to orchestrate "independent" praise of our
technology, and damnation of the enemy's, is a key evangelism function during
the Slog. "Independent" analyst's report should be issued, praising your
technology and damning the competitors (or ignoring them). "Independent"
consultants should write columns and articles, give conference presentations
and moderate stacked panels, all on our behalf (and setting them up as experts
in the new technology, available for just $200/hour). "Independent" academic
sources should be cultivated and quoted (and research money
granted). "Independent" courseware providers should start profiting from their
early involvement in our technology. Every possible source of leverage should
be sought and turned to our advantage."
