To all the nerds in the world: Tell lies. It’s the only way you’re going to get laid

Scoble won’t link to Microsoft Live sites that don’t support firefox. Scoble also adds to this in the comments on his site:

it’s not that they don’t think it’s important, it’s that they put it on a lower priority and are trying to get things out faster.

Hang. On. A. Second.

Wasn’t this the Vista excuse? Isn’t one of the reasons that Vista was delayed because of MS wanting to release an OS that worked right out of the gates and wasn’t “almost but not quite running but at least was released on schedule”? Tut tut. “Mr. Right hand, I’d like you to meet Mr. Left Hand. You guys should talk about your work. You might be able to work together.”

Anyway, fair play to Robert for coming out and saying he’s pissed off over this.

The title of my blog post comes from this interview. I thought it a fun title but it has nothing to do with the content.

    To be fair, in Microsoft, Mr Right Hand and Mr Left Hand often aren’t even aware that there are other hands out there – never mind having heard of who they are.
