Microsoft

Why in the world is Microsoft (through an agency) trying pay bloggers to write about Internet Explorer? Do people still do this? And given my position on paid posts, why would they think I'd be willing to participate?

This is just layers of stupid.

Yes, people still do this. It's always hard to prove, but when you see the same (sometimes word-for-word) pro-Apple, pro-Microsoft, or pro-Google comments show up on multiple sites from different users in a timespan of a few hours or days, you know the coffee ain't pure.

I agree totally. Microsoft makes the best browsers on the planet. I weep with joy at every update our dear leader... I mean our inspiring operating system provides us.

P.S. For anyone at Microsoft Accounts Payable... I accept bit coins as well as cash.

To create a new standard, it takes something that's not just a little bit different; it takes something that's really new and really captures people's imagination — and Internet Explorer, of all the browsers I've ever seen, is the only one that meets that standard.

ps. MS, feel free to donate my payment to Thom Holwerda.

pps. Any likeness to famous quotations is purely coincidental.
