    Thumbs up Microsoft's Legal & Policy Blog - Microsoft On The Issues

    The Microsoft Corporate Affairs team launched the Microsoft On The Issues blog today to cover & discuss legal and policy issues related to Microsoft.

    Welcome to Microsoft On The Issues - Microsoft On The Issues



    Today we are launching "Microsoft on the Issues" to open another, more direct line of communication that will enable us to quickly and succinctly provide our perspective on the pressing technology matters of the day. We do not want this to be a one-way conversation. We want to create a transparent dialogue with readers and stakeholders. We want to enhance our participation in discussions that propel policy-making at local, national and international levels.
    Microsoft is blogging a lot lately. That's a very good sign, as it offers one more channel to interact. This will help change people's perceptions as they get a direct source of information & communication.

    Very interesting but then if you don't talk to your customers you aren't going give them what they want are you.

    Your statement reminds one of Steve Jobs most apt quotes:

    The idea shouldn't be what customers want, but how you can improve what you have. That's just my opinion though.

    I completely agree with Steve Jobs.

    But then they might not want the "improvements" that you have, and why are companies spending so much money on market research if not to give the customers what they want. Betamax was a far superior product but it wasn't what the customer wanted. CV5 was a great idea but not what the customer wanted. If I don't sell what my customers want I go out of business it's that simple, and from the look of things apple will be out of business soon as well

    ^^ It's quite a subjective topic IMO. 1 may choose either way. Might work, might not work.
