Tech Tuesday – Well Huuuullo

Microsoft has discovered Cloud Computing. Once again instead of leading the pack they are a long way behind.

This is proof positive that Google has been reaming their ass for years and years and finally the vaseline ran out.

Except with this new revelation about the Cloud they even screw that up.

The Cloud Wants Smart Devices: Not much in this except demonstrating Ballmer’s belief in the “Internet of Things,” where the cloud helps connect devices to undestand gestures, bringing together voice, touch, speech, all in one.

It’s the future of the smart device that appears to have had had such an influence on Windows Phone 7 Series. He pointed to the mistakes Microsoft made with Windows Mobile. It was too focused on voice. The future of Windows is in the cloud. That goes for the Windows operating system and Windows Phone 7 Series.

A lot of people will say Microsoft is not in the game anymore. That notion can’t be supported when you see Microsoft discussing realistic, intelligent views about the market and backing it with how the cloud applies to its products and services.

Still, Microsoft is as guilty as anyone for hyping the cloud and further obfuscating what is meant by cloud computing.

Really, Steve. Did you actually say “cloud in a box?”

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
