Okay, maybe I am obssessed with Microsoft. And why wouldn’t I be? I write about their products and services all the time.
And they really are the 800-pound gorilla of the area, tech-wise. I would probably be equally obssessed with Amazon if I could find an equal amount of technology coverage devoted to what they’re up to.
Ozzie identified three new key tenets Microsoft must embrace within the context of their products and services:
- The power of the advertising-supported economic model (such as Google’s.)
- The effectiveness of a new, Internet-enabled, grassrooots delivery and adoption model.
- The demand for compelling, integrated user experiences that “just work” (such as the iPod: a combination of hardware, software, and services via iTunes.)
