Editorial: Is Microsoft dipping into way too much?

When building a house there are many aspects that demands extreme attention. In fact if not done carefully, your home could suffer from lengthy damaging problems, (I know, I worked in our family's construction business for years). The most important though is the foundation. Other portions could allow defects but if the foundation is not properly constructed, the house will eventually crumble. When you've built a solid foundation, the rest is not as painstaking, you can now structure the house following the plan and build a beautiful home.

But what is a foundation if you're left without a roof over your head? The home then becomes useless, rain would inevitably destroy all your belongings. Your would die come winter; and the summer's heat would make you feel like it's hell on earth! These facts stand true not only in the construction arena, but in almost every other field; if your start is not solid, your end will come down crashing. And if you don't take could care of what protects your foundation, you will lose almost everything.

"Microsoft-Yahoo Search deal - another move to try and compete against Google, Microsoft will suffer an initial loss of $300 million in first 1-2years, as it takes over the costly operation of yahoo's search business. But will it pay off is another question left unanswered. Yahoo shares fell a disheartening 16 percent since the partnership was announced, magnifying wall street's disappointment.
MSN - It’s distracting the company from it’s main role as a software giant.
MSN search - What?
BING - but it’s not Google.
ZUNE - the failed answer to the ipod.
Xbox 360 - It’s a great product, I enjoy the console, they’ve made great strides. But what will the share holders conclude? Is the Xbox360 really worth the billions poured into it? Remember the company lost 7billion dollars in just 4years on the original Xbox. What about that money? These are the questions share holders will be asking.
RETAIL STORES - this fall the company will open a string of retail stores right next to apple’s."

So much truth! I can already hear the bots crying :)

wtf you live in Montreal right? You should be aware that MSN/Hotmail is like the most used stuff here to comunicate over the internet. It's far from being a distraction in their camp.

microsofts choices and business deals have been rather odd and questionable if you ask me

honestly it seems like if they wanna throw away their money
seems like they are taking allot of gambles lately

GiantEnemyCrab3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

MS is pushing hard. They are knocking Sony around like a lil beotch and now they are looking to take on Google.

MS aren't slowing down and they will beat you into submission that's how they do business. MS always brings its gun to a knife fight.

heroicjanitor3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

And it's only because they are half the price and Sony isn't advertising as much. We all know ms is fuked as soon as sony drop the price and bring out a slim and advertise the hell out of it.

They do business by throwing money around.

Microsoft brings money to a knife fight.

KionicWarlord2223339d ago

I dont think Microsoft will be *curse word* .

I do think sony`s sales will surge .

heroicjanitor3339d ago

But if Sony beats them in sales then sony knocks them around and wins hurray for sony yeah keep going I love the way you do business you are just turning up and winning it reminds me of a knife fight except you bring guns yay hurray

KionicWarlord2223339d ago

As long as there`s competition Microsoft and Sony will both fight each other .
