#NBC laughs down its sleeve as #Ballmer pitches #Windows7 ON A #MAC

Thanks to TUAW for running this piece.  It kinda made my week.

I almost feel sorry for Steve Ballmer.  Not only does he get his great pitch spot for Windows 7 ruined by Matt Lauer constantly asking him questions about Apple and the iPhone but the wags in NBC’s graphics dept stuck MSFT’s Windows 7 logo on the screen of a MacBook Pro…!   Way to go guys!

No wonder Ballmer looks like he’s just been stabbed in the heart, after all NBC is a partner with MSFT in MSNBC….  ROFL….

It don’t get much better than this.

Cli.gs Shutting Down – Sorrow

October 11th, 2009 Comments off

Tiz a great shame when a really great idea and excellent execution isn’t enough to make a business successful.  Like so many other promising start-ups on the internet the URL shortening service Cli.gs will be making its last snip at the end of October.

This is particularly sad for us at NoOneDriving as we’ve been big supporters of Cli.gs over the last 9 months, using it exclusively as are shortening service. We are now transitioning that role over to bit.ly and as such will update previous posts over time to ensure that they are still available via a short URL.

It’s our hope that Pierre will be able to find a backer or buyer to keep the service going.  We wish him all the best.!

Phantom’s Mini Me

hme_logoIf, like me, your professional life revolves around IT then you’re probably more familiar with Las Vegas than the rest of the planet.  Conventionville has me hostage again this week and, as now seems to be the norm, I’m entombed in The (chapter 11 friendly) Venetian resort, hotel & money funnel.   Read more…
