Microsoft

Satya Nadella needs to find Microsoft's new "a computer on every desk and in every home running Microsoft software". Here's my stab at it: Microsoft services, sending data to and from every networked device in the world.

The next ubiquity isn't running on every device, it's talking to every device.

Interesting view.

I think Google might have the lead in "it's talking to every device" with their buying of A.I and robotic firms.

To me it seems Microsoft has an advantage with Windows and Office in the business world. Throw in Azure and OneDrive and perhaps you can make a slick whole of it all.

Google has the advantage of Android and a lot of people already using their services. People rather have the IT department make them access their work file at work/home than move everything to another service (Microsoft).

Google was always able to move faster than Microsoft, but we'll have to wait and see how Microsoft performs under their new CEO.

Seems to me that 'advantage' is shrinking everyday.
