Microsoft Financial analyst Charles Sizemore predicts that over time, a persistent Microsoft will come to not only thrive but dominate in the mobile computing space, because Apple has no "moats" to prevent customer attrition and its insistence at heavily controlling the ecosystem will drive customers away, while Google's offerings are too "shoddy." It's a bold prediction, but I suppose betting on Microsoft to be persistent and build on its strengths is a safe bet. But will persistence and flexibility be enough?

Microsoft should downsize sticking to the core business, that's it.


Some would argue that the core business of any technology company is to try different things.

There's something to be said about this fear-of-failure culture that every wannabe CEO latch on to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG9CE55wbtY
