    Google to plug self into Microsoft Office • The Register 

    “Our first step will be to combine DocVerse with Google Apps to create a bridge between Microsoft Office and Google Apps,” they wrote

    via Google to plug self into Microsoft Office • The Register

    Should Google really care about docs at all?  I mean isn’t Google really interested in driving more eyeballs to the web for advertising.  Also shouldn’t Microsoft care more about reinforcing their vise like grip on Office Productivity suites.

    Is there ever a possibility that Google and Microsoft would work together to create a free version of Office powered by Microsoft funded by Google advertising?

    Apple’s Snow Leopard Is Less Secure Than Windows, But Safer | Gadget Lab | Wired.com 

    While its true that MacOS has been shielded by obscurity in terms of direct threats, it is generally true that it is not nearly as secure as Windows.

    My point is that Macs are often suggested as a great device for users who just want it to work.  My problem is that these are the most likely users to fall for phishing attacks.  Am I right or wrong?

    Apple fights back against Laptop Hunters ads 

    Apple fights back against Laptop Hunters ads

    While I agree the original Microsoft ads were misleading since the laptops typically purchased were not the same hardware as the comparable Mac.  It is absolutely bullshit that Apple continues to promote the notion that users of Macs never need worry about viruses.

    I agree I’m not the typical user, but at the same time nobody in my family has had a virus as long as they kept the anti-virus (which was free AVG) up to date which was set to auto-update.  Also as long as you’re not going about torrenting, P2P, crazy porn sites, your PC should stay pretty clear of even malware.  Microsoft will even begin to include additional bundled software.

    Paul Thurrott’s SuperSite for Windows: Microsoft Interoperability? Yes, But No Respect At All 

    Paul Thurrott’s SuperSite for Windows: Microsoft Interoperability? Yes, But No Respect At All.

    And who says Microsoft is toast, or as even Paul Thurrott named one of his speaking engagements “Is Microsoft F*!#$D”

    I think the core problem with Microsoft is that the company tries to be so many things to so many customers.  Bill Gates always focused on software, but now the company is in the hardware business like Apple to some extent (see XBox 360 and Zune)  Microsoft even within its software line has problems where divisions seemingly aren’t aligned with each other.

    Microsoft should begin to realize what its about and focus on those things.
