Microsoft's Losing Battle
informationweek.com/1080/blog_mseurope.htm

I don't think the Europeans are so mesmerized by the rather questionable popular perception in the United States of Microsoft as a great innovator and example of entrepreneurship. Maybe Microsoft needs to learn that being smart, even really smart, just isn't enough. --Gordon

Indian Bloggers Weigh In On Bush, Outsourcing, Nukes
informationweek.com/1080/blog_india.htm

India has a 300 million population of medium-income families that may be potential consumers of U.S. goods. What goods are they going to buy? And if it's cheaper to hire Indians to program and do jobs for the United States, then how is it they will have the money to afford expensive American goods? I can see only doom and gloom for many IT sector jobs. --SteveO

The growing BPO and IT outsourcing opportunities as well as the financial investments by the foreign companies are greatly contributing to the consistent growth rate of over 8% in India over the past few years. The Indo-U.S. alliance is very critical to the economies of both countries. --Srini

Google's Slip-pery Slope
informationweek.com/1080/blog_google.htm

I believe you're stretching facts a bit by seeing evil in Google's PR gaffe. I looked at the PowerPoint slides from Google. GDrive was only one item in a host of other things and clearly seemed like a slip of tongue. And the idea of GDrive does seem like one that will have a reasonable market.

It's clear that Google is no longer the blue-eyed boy to the media, and folks like you are seeing evil in whatever they do. --David Hagel
