Microsoft wonât be dominating the OS much longer

,----[ Quote ]
| SOFTWARE COLOSSUS Microsoft's dominance of 
| the IT industry will disappear within five 
| years, as it loses its grip on a facet of 
| the industry where smartphone devices will 
| be king.


The real, and unusual, story between Microsoft and Piracy

,----[ Quote ]
| But then the grief doesn't end here, 
| because the problem will seem even worse if 
| you ponder the fact that most people, 
| around the world, who use computers can 
| barely afford to pay their monthly bills, 
| and that all these people are using pirated 
| software because:
|     * A) That's the only software they've 
|     ever known. 
| And:
|     * B) They cannot afford to pay for the 
|     annual licensing fee of a genuine copy.
| These people have been mass-hypnotized, 
| they've been indoctrinated into believing 
| that whatever MS gives them is right, and 
| that MS software is the only software on 
| Earth that actually works. Now, take under 
| consideration that MS is a for-profit 
| organization after all (Actually, MS is a 
| for-nothing-but-profit organization, but ya 
| know), and that sooner or later, MS will 
| start collecting money in all ways 
| possible.



Bing advertisers on wane, says report

,----[ Quote ]
| Due out tomorrow - prior to the release of
| quarterly earnings results from Google,
| Yahoo!, and Microsoft - the report also says
| that's Google share of search advertisers has
| reached a near all-time high of 81.2 per cent.
| All this, and we're just 18 weeks away from
| Bing's much-hyped debut.


Study: Bing search share drops

,----[ Quote ]
| The report found that Bing's percentage of
| searches actually dropped by five percent during
| the month of September to 8.96 percent of all
| searches. Google, by comparison, gained one
| percent to 71.08 percent of all searches. (Chart
| below).


Bing Search Tainted by Pro-Microsoft Results

,----[ Quote ]
| The first of the search results about the Microsoft Word question linked to a
| page about how expensive Manhattan is (Is Microsoft competing with Manhattan
| now?). The top responses to the "Is Microsoft Evil?" question were, get this,
| a link to a New York Times story about whether or not Google is considered
| evil, a link about proxy servers, and a link to a story about Microsoft being
| charitable. Wow.
