Yahoo's New CPO Loves His Mac

My problem isn't with that other firm's data but how CNET used it to make something out of absolutely nothing.

Question Of The Day

Has Apple moved its WWDC 06 to Disneyland yet?

The Microsoft Decision

Microsoft has figured out that in order to deliver a good game machine, you'll need to build the whole widget. And Xbox is selling very well — at least outside of Japan.

Microsoft has probably figured out that, technically, in order to deliver a good portable music and video player, you'll need to build the whole widget. Just like Apple's iPod. The problem, I think, is that Microsoft cannot figure out the business model yet.

But when they do, it will launch a tidal wave. What's next after the Microsoft MP3 player, once the business model has been figured out? How about Microsoft PDA? Microsoft Phone? Microsoft Server? Microsoft PC?

Does this mean that if you are a HP, O2, Dell, or Lennova, you really should start thinking about creating the whole widget youself too?
