I hate it, you hate it, we all hate it. It’s those annoying little advertisements that pop up at the most inconvenient time and seemingly knows more about you than you know about yourself. “Backpain?” The ad inquires. “Well…I guess I might’ve had a little back pain yesterday,” you think, “which is why I did a Google search and found out that…hey…wait a minute…are you stalking me?!” It’s intrusive to say the very least.

Then I realized that the problem with Microsoft is that it represents the global large corporate mentality, mediocrity and lack of innovations. This is why Google is #1 and this is why no matter how much money a large company throws at the small competition, they can't keep up.
