Microsoft buys into global telco dreams

It's always interesting to watch the collective internet's response to moves by Microsoft, which are almost unanimously viewed with something bordering on suspicion and contempt. Yet, there seems to be very little consideration of the fact that Microsoft's US$8.5 billion has shrewdly turned the company into what is effectively the world's biggest global telecoms operator — and given it an express pass to use that operator to unify its massively popular desktop computing, enterprise and gaming environments with its nascent mobile effort.

With both Yahoo!'s and Microsoft's directories of users integrated, the miracle of single sign-on makes them in the probable near future part of the Microsoft advertising network, the Microsoft ID management complex, the Microsoft "software plus services" environment -- all by default, all quite convenient. And once you're in as a user, and once the oxygen is cut off to the competition, the world begins to look a lot more like Windows Everywhere over time.

End of the PC? No, iPhone is the end of the cell phone

It's a longshot, but if they succeed the cell industry will be soon shrinking rapidly into irrelevancy. All that wasted money!
