I received this via email – so I can’t easily credit the source, but I thought it was quite funny and in reality it shows how things tend to work in the industry. People get into the idea that if they do something once at a given size that they can just scale up from there and the world will beat a path to their door. Classicly Apple seem to be on the right path with the iPhone and then the iPad (even though I don’t agree here). Microsoft on the other hand make me wonder at times. With the drive to move everything to the cloud, we are loosing sense of the scale and technology involved, and I’m not sure that’s a good thing. We will come to expect things are so easy when in fact they are complicated. I wonder if we will therefore become complacent with how they deal with technology.
Food for thought over the weekend 🙂
