    Hmm... Windows/Microsoft needs to be hip again. I agree. Apple saw it years back and came up with the "PC guy". Microsoft's marketing should be boosted and very much improved. I agree that Microsoft has nice tech and nobody knows about it because there's nobody showing it at events or at least it's not done in a ways that the media would pick it up...

    Yes, I was wondering how many of those jobs they could save, if they let go of their inept marketing department.

    I do think that company is in a slow, inevitable decline, but when you're as successful as MS, then the only way to go is down. Especially when you're too lumbering to keep up with the new kids.

    Same thing happened to IBM, same thing will happen to Apple.
