Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has criticized Android for being “wild” and “uncontrolled.” Will fragmentation and malware lead to Android’s demise?
There are arguably only two mobile operating systems that really matter these days as far as market-share is concerned. As you probably guessed, we are talking about Android and iOS. Sure, there are other platforms like Blackberry and Windows Phone, but neither of these operating systems come close to the popularity of iOS and Android. Steve Ballmer claims this will all change with the recent release of Windows Phone 8.
Here’s to the crazy ones, indeed! Reminiscent of how an iconic ex-CEO once attempted to voice-over an advertisement for his company’s product, Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone 8 ad screams of self-promotion. But this is a different Steve, altogether — someone who does not exactly generate a Reality Distortion Field like the late Steve Jobs. Microsoft’s own Steve Ballmer has narrated Redmond’s latest Windows Phone 8 ad, with highlight on the personal touch.
