The Absolute Truth About Marketing

  Is Microsoft evil?
Like Imperial Storm Troopers invading the Green Planet, Microsoft's probes continue to crawl around in cyberspace, seeking to crash through our defences and invade our computers, spying and eavesdropping. It's not enough to be the richest man on the planet. Bill wants to be Emperor. Chief Dalek. Like robber baron monopolists before him (Carnegie, etc.) he wants absolute control, absolute power. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. It reminds me of the Apple Macintosh tv commercial called '1984' in which Big Brother harangued an audience of prisoners until a woman with a mallet runs in and smashes the screen. In 1984, Big Blue was the evil empire. Now it's Big Bill. Do people like him suffer from a obsessive-compulsive disorder, a control syndrome?
He suffers from both ... but mostly from bad taste.
How can a guy, with that much cash, wear the stuff he does?
Seriously, with that amount of money and power, why would you continue to look like a dork - and frankly, have only one wife ( who is OK looking at best.)
Evil? Not so sure (he is, afterall, the world's biggest philanthopist). Evil? Probaly no more so than Michael Dell. And come to think of it, he's a bad dresser, too.
