The iPad May Be Humorous, But Windows 7 Is Frustrating

,----[ Quote ]
| I fired up a PC I havenât used in a while, 
| expecting to have to sit through the mind-
| numbing Windows Update parade. What I was 
| confronted with was worse than that, as the 
| computer refused to boot properly. I found 
| myself staring at the window above, telling me 
| that something was wrong and asking if I 
| wanted Windows 7 to fix itself. I told it yes 
| and the fun began.
| It sat and did something, I donât know what 
| but the hard disk was thrashing, for a good 
| while. Eventually it indicated it needed to 
| restore the system to an earlier point, so I 
| said yes. This fired off another seemingly 
| endless process that eventually required a 
| reboot.


No Telling How Windows 8 Will Be Better than Windows 7



A Day to Remember: 23 April, 2009

| And there's another reason why yesterday was significant: Microsoft announced
| what are probably its worst quarter results ever:
| Microsoft Corp. today announced revenue of $13.65 billion for the third
| quarter ended March 31, 2009, a 6% decline from the same period of the prior
| year. Operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share for the
| quarter were $4.44 billion, $2.98 billion and $0.33 per share, which
| represented an increase of 3% and declines of 32% and 30%, respectively, when
| compared with the prior year period.
| Now, the global financial crisis certainly contributed to those figures, but
| I think there's a bigger underlying trend here, which is that the Microsoft
| money machine is faltering.


Microsoft slashes rates for temp workers, blaming bad economy

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, citing the "realities of a deteriorating economy," will reduce by
| 10 percent the amount it pays employment agencies for many of its temporary
| workers -- and cut by 15 percent the target billing rate for future temporary
| work.


Microsoft reaffirms grim outlook for year

| Shares of Microsoft sank 58 cents, or 3.4 percent, to $16.63 in midday
| trading amid a broader market sell-off.
