Oh Microsoft, How the Mighty have Fallen....

It took me a long time to come around to the conclusion that Microsoft was really losing it's stranglehold on the tech industry. Yeah, Google had some cool features, but what moron actually clicks on the paid search results? Clearly, a lot more than I expected.

Oh and Apple makes cool little tools for playing around, but no one does serious work on an imac do they? Ooops, wrong again.

Now comes word that Microsoft is hiring Jerry Seinfeld to make them appear cool again. Huh? As Silicon Alley Insider notes, is Jerry Seinfeld even cool anymore?

"Specifically, Microsoft is paying Seinfeld $10 million to pal around with Gates and joke about how cool Windows is. The goal of the campaign? To get that nerdy Windows guy in the Apple ads out of people's heads."

Someone really needs to give the boys in Redmond a reality check.
