The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — served up the Sinofsky firing as the main course of a dissection of the Microsoft playbook or lack of it. Who knew that it would be Steve Ballmer to announce just how screwed Microsoft is. Windows 8 solves the wrong problem, while Android keeps several steps ahead with its Nexus platform.
And the iPad Mini is like a flu shot, protecting Apple from the worst of Android’s disruption while giving the crossover market a BYOT device for the trip to and from the office. As Office attempts to treat each platform as peanut butter, eventually they’ll realize they’ve been jammed. The final firewall: PowerPoint.
