Rejected by Yahoo!, outgunned by Google and humiliated by Apple, Microsoft is fighting for its very survival.
TechRadar: "On the face of it, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Gordon Brown don't have much in common.
One is a plain speaking, unpretentious, horny-handed son of toil who, after what seemed like an eternity, took over the top job from his best friend – only to find himself in charge of a crumbling empire with no clear direction, declining popularity and endless media coverage of his smoother, more stylish rival. The other is the Prime Minister.
The comparison isn't as bizarre as it might seem."
