PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft had its annual financial analyst meeting on Thursday, and Steve Ballmer answered questions about what the company's answer to the iPad was going to be, and whether Windows Phone 7 was going to be a part of that product strategy. He said, "We're coming . . . We're coming full guns. The operating system is called Windows." Ballmer and Microsoft so don't get it. I can't believe Steve Ballmer is making me feel sorry for Microsoft.

...is it's all about the software.

I know, right? And they are supposed to be a software company.

I'm not even sure how they managed to get as big as they are, being as incompetent as they are.

And that is the problem right there. They got too big. Too many mid-level managers trying to hold onto their little fiefdoms. They don't know what they are doing and give the wrong guidance to the developers. It doesn't help that Ballmer seems to have no clue.

I've seen this before.
