Cloud computing threatens Microsoft business model


Google Kinks Microsoft's Air Supply

,----[ Quote ]
| As part of a 2006 settlement between 
| Microsoft and the state of California 
| alleging overcharges for software, the city 
| of Los Angeles received several million 
| dollars. The city will use $1.5 million of 
| that Microsoft money to pay most of the $1.9 
| million cost of the Google contract's first 
| year. Ouch. That is not a cloud with a silver 
| lining for Microsoft.


Is Microsoft a dinosaur to Google's mammal?

,----[ Quote ]
| However (and this is a really big however), 
| Googleâs products are maturing at an 
| incredible pace, perhaps because they eat 
| their own dogfood and run their own 
| enterprise on Google technologies. Hereâs the 
| real question you have to ask yourself: Is it 
| worth investing in a Microsoft ecosystem now? 
| Or does Microsoft need to fundamentally shift 
| directions if it hopes to keep attracting new 
| customers in a world that is increasingly 
| turning to the Web for everything it does?


Students prefer Google to Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Google is the world's most attractive 
| employer, followed closely by its rival, 
| Microsoft, said a recent survey by Universum, 
| a provider in research, strategic consulting 
| and media solutions in the field of employer 
| branding.


Turbulence on the Way to the Cloud

| British newspaper publisher Telegraph Media 
| switched from Microsoft Outlook to Gmail and 
| is rolling out other Google Apps.


Google's Obsession With Microsoft Burns Hotter

,----[ Quote ]
| Google CEO Eric Schmidt claims that Microsoft 
| has provided his company with a sort of 
| 'reverse roadmap' of what not to do to 
| achieve sustained success, a comment that 
| shows just how preoccupied Google has become 
| with its gigantic rival.


Google CEO: We Wonât Repeat Microsoftâs Mistakes

,----[ Quote ]
| Google CEO Eric Schmidt is on a bit of a 
| Microsoft offensive. Earlier this week, while 
| talking to press in Boston when Schmidt was 
| asked to comment on a statement by Microsoft 
| CEO Steve Ballmer, he said, âIâve learned not 
| to respond to quotes by Steve Ballmer.â Oh 
| Snap!


Google: Donât Be Evil. Or Microsoft.


Yahoo! and Microsoft search deal delayed until 2010


Microsoft is VERY afraid of Google.


Ballmer Still Searching for an Answer to Google

,----[ Quote ]
| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
