Why a start-up should avoid Microsoft? (MP+IT = #Fail)

It seems that  “Startup Britain” has hit a BSOD and we can thank Internet Explorer and Windows. On Monday a site was launched with the backing of David Cameron for “helping” entrepreneurs with their Start-up…. Oh joy, you know this will be good. We’ve seen what happens when MP’s get involved in IT.  They don’t understand … Continue reading

NewsBytes 17th October 2010 – Mono, IE9, Badboy Ballmer & Angry Birds!

IE9 is “delightfully” not as quick as the competition? Daniweb has conducted speed tests of all the major browsers (including IE9) and come to the conclusion that far from being the fastest (as Microsoft seem to claim) the reality is different: Internet Explorer 9 may well be the fastest web browser yet from Microsoft, but … Continue reading

In my opinion I have not seen anything more distasteful than the latest alleged tactic by Microsoft.  There will be no lengthy opinion or silly picture.
