Speaking of Microsoft’s Frank Shaw, he’s back…:
Seems like the RDF (Reality Distortion Field) typically generated by an Apple event has extended beyond Cupertino.
But you wouldn’t know that from reading some of the coverage I’ve read today. Perhaps attendees at Apple’s event were required to work on iOS devices that don’t allow them to have two windows open for side-by-side comparisons, so let me help them out by highlighting the following facts…
Yes, the tens of millions of people buying iPads are simply brainwashed. That’s clearly what’s going on here.
It seems almost unbelievable that Shaw would write this post on The Official Microsoft Blog, and yet, here it is. It’s a fascinating post because it’s a mixture of pure marketing (“I have to say, I’m really excited for a 1080p Lumia with a third column on my start screen..”) and actual reality distortion.
But it’s hard to get riled up about such posts any more. Given Microsoft’s position in the tablet space, this whole thing just reads as sort of sad. (And yes, a little Baghdad Bob-y.)
