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.

They have been a major player for over 30 years now and here we find them three decades later not dependent on milking some ancient product line (with the possible exception of the actual Mac) but rather innovating like wild rolling out one product after another that transforms existing markets.

My bet is they will last exactly as long as Steve Jobs lasts. After he's gone it will be a descent into mediocrity just like MS under Ballmer.
