Here's a telling segment of Larson-Green's idea of Microsoft controlling your future:
â€We have a great platform...that scales from mobile devices to giant large screen devices to your living room. â€
Notice, it's all "sit back and pay, consume" devices. Nothing to create. Nothing for productivity.
â€...Weâ€™re working on a world where we make it easy for you to have many different devices in your life. So signing in with your Live ID on a new device gives you back everything that you had on your old device.â€
Yes. Sign into Microsoft. Buy from them. Pay their fees. Give them total awareness of YOUR devices and YOUR uses.
And actually, she means "gives you back everything MICROSOFT ALLOWS..." We already see their scrutiny, hooks, claws and denials of service in their current generation of products.
I wonder if she'll let me have THAT information about HER? Next time, I'll ask...
Ballmer, sadly, has continued to refuse to let me install 138 fonts on HIS computer that he'd never ever use.
