The ultimate Windows fanboy...
« on: February 25, 2008, 01:52:15 PM »
The headline of this article really gives the wrong impression:

The last sentence must be the most sycophantic, and frankly pathetic thing I have ever heard anyone say when talking about computer software.

I think you're underestimating Robert Scoble...  Read the full article.  I'll be watching to see what the noise is about, as it could be groundbreaking.

Or it could be another Origami.

It’s been a long while since Microsoft did something that had an emotional impact on me like that.

Since Windows ME? :lol:

It appears to be a new version of their Google Earth clone.  Apparently it is now far better than Google Earth.

"While listening to Wong I noticed a tear running down my face"

He should be careful - a torn face could result in a nasty infection!

@ AndrewBell, maybe he got something caught in that zip. That would make me cry (as for any man).

I bet what ever it is can't make me cry more than I did every time I had to deal with Windows 95.
