Microsoft does two things fairly well. Operating systems and enterprise software. Outside of that however, they suck pretty badly. And it looks like this article works to remind us of this.
Two of Microsoft’s products apparently, failed to live up to the author’s expectations. It’s possible that the Bing-Zune playback functionality was still more of a Beta issue, but I am not surprised by it’s failure.
Bing is a Me-Too search engine and has failed to make its mark in any kind of meaningful way. They are doing some things right, but sadly they are launching functionality that is simply not tested well enough for mainstream usage.
