Blockquote: How Google Is Turning Into Microsoft

Believed to be run by a Microsoft employee, the guy behind Mini-Microsoft has some pretty sharp words about what Google's turning into—and not just because they're in the OS business these days. They're cutting because they're true:

"Rather than pulling an Apple on us anymore, Google has picked up the nasty habit of pre-announcing technology. Guys, you stole the wrong playbook. And, uh, we don't want it back."

The rest of the post is about how Microsoft is turning a corner after the last several years of malaise (to put it mildly).

Which, as far as I can tell, seems to be a genuine belief at Redmond these days. What do you think? Windows 7, Bing, and Xbox 360 are all not too shabby, even if the mobile front is still utterly miserable.
