    Chalk up another developer up for the iPhone App Watch: **Microsoft**.
    Microsoft has a small team called the MacBU that develops the very
    successful Office Suite for the Mac -- an office suite that until the
    recent version was widely thought to be more advanced than even its
    Windows counterpart and in some ways a "test bed" for features that
    would eventually make it into the Windows version of Office. It may
    surprise some to hear that Microsoft is looking at the iPhone for
    development, but it ought not.

    Just what we need: iPhone versions of the blue screen of death and
    other bug-ridden rubbish. :-\

    Being it can only run one app at a time, why should that be a problem ?

    How else are they going to get a office suite into the iPhone along with
    both Microsoft Exchange and ActiveSync support without Microsoft ?

    Sorry you don't know the difference between an Operating System (which
    causes a Blue Screen, and wion't be on an iPhone);
    and an application from Microsoft for the iPhone, which Apple will
    never let out if it adversely affects the iPhone.

    You don't. What you do is the reverse and get rid of Microsoft from the
    IT industry. It's only so invasive and "neccessary" because so many
    fools keep buying and using their garbage.

    It's actually already happening, just very slowly. Users are refusing
    to take up Vista, shops forced to re-intsall XP on new computers,
    countries and US states are taking them to legal courts, people turning
    to alternatives, etc.

    Microsoft has been dubious quality and had dodgey business practices
    from the beginning, and now more and more people are finally waking up
    to that fact.

    Here's even more evidence from todays news stories on Slashdot.org ...

    Microsoft Brand In Sharp Decline
    --------------------------------
    A recent poll of about 12,000 US business decision-makers
    by market researcher CoreBrand found that Microsoft's
    brand power has taken a dive over the past four years.
    According to the study, Microsoft dropped from number 12
    in the ranking of the most powerful US company brands in
    2004 to number 59 last year. In 1996, the company ranked
    number 1 in brand power among 1,200 top companies in
    about 50 industries. The CEO of CoreBrand said: 'When you
    see something decline with increasing velocity, it's a
    concern.' To add some historical context, IBM suffered a
    much faster and more severe decline in brand power in the
    early 1990s and it took them 10 years to rebuild the
    brand's reputation.
