‘Microsoft sucks’, says top blogger

Robert Scoble, formerly Microsoft’s tame blogger has bitten the software company that made his name when it employed him as a “technology evangelist”. Scoble writes the Scobleizer web log, one of the most-read sources of technology commentary on the internet. … At a “global summit” of its most-valued software developers, Microsoft repeatedly declared that it would “win” in search and other parts of its Windows Live internet strategy. “The words are empty,” Scoble responded. “Microsoft’s internet execution sucks (on the whole). Its search sucks. Its advertising sucks. If that’s ‘in it to win’, then I don’t get it.” He continued: “Microsoft isn’t going away. Don’t get me wrong. They have record profits, record sales, all that. But on the internet? Come on.”
