Microsoft needs to wake up and grow up.

For the last few months, the tech giant of the late 1980’s to late 1990’s, Microsoft decided to pick up a fight with almost anyone.
We saw them relentlessly bashing Apple’s Siri , then we saw the anti-Google mug. Today I read from The Wall Street Journal that Microsoft Hires ‘Pawn Stars’ to Bash Google Chromebooks.

What this means is :

1. Microsoft has run out of innovative ideas:
Imagine if people are in love with you, you charm them, you thrill them, you take them to places they’ve never been, you always perform the magic. Why would you worry about what your competition is doing? The moment someone runs out of ideas, they start fighting everyone else they perceive as a threat. So Microsoft needs to wake up, fire some people, hire some people and come up with products that will make people go crazy about Microsoft like happened in the 1990’s.

2. Microsoft is insecure:
Just because everyone is excited about the new kid on the block doesn’t mean they are fed up of you. We’ve all had that feeling of freaking out whenever we see people excited about someone else and paying lesser attention to us. Well, it happens all the time. But does that mean we start playing dirty games? Come on, someone need to get their issues fixed. It makes Microsoft look more and more insecure and desperate. I would who gets attracted to desperately insecure people? mmmm, not me for sure.

3. Microsoft needs to fire its marketing people:
I wasn’t excited about Lumia and Windows 8 until I used both products for a company project. The truth is I loved them!!!! The Lumia phones are awesome when it comes to performance and screen display. But they don’t look sexy on the outside. Microsoft (or Nokia) should copy Samsung’s design.
Windows 8 is also sexy to be honest. But I am still a poor guy to afford one, so I will buy a new system maybe next year.

Let’s assume Microsoft is right about its bashing of other products. Question is, for those of us who have used Microsoft’s products since the 1990’s, can you really say Microsoft has always made the best products in the world? We still remember how Microsoft had to threaten, copy and back-stub competitors and illegally running them out of business.
