Sounds like my Grandpa wrote this article. Apparently, Microsoft is hip again with all these new fangled companies getting some bogus news stories. Bummer, Daddy-o. As long as they don’t start attracting the hipsters, we’ll all be good. That’s one thing Microsoft doesn’t need is a lot of poseur hipsters writing novels (playing Farmville on Facebook) on their new Dell sitting at Starbucks sipping their vegan vente cappuccino.
Which brings us to the other aspect of Microsoft’s renaissance: good timing. The once-hipper than Microsoft foes, Google and Apple haven’t looked so good these days. Google, the once beloved search company, has users uneasy with its Google+ integration, privacy issues and anti-trust concerns. Even Googlers aren’t too sure of Google’s mission, these days.
