View Thread: What if Microsoft designed the iPod box?

    Word is that this was made by somebody inside Microsoft, and that they're in hot water now that this has come out.

    If true, that's foolish. Denying the reality is a move from weakness. As is using power to suppress the discussion. Seems like a poor idea to punish people for being talented and expressing dissenting opinions; the obvious lesson for employees and prospects to draw is that Microsoft would rather have a mediocre monoculture.

    Of course, if that's what the execs want, it's easy enough to get.
