Speaking of Failure…

Microsoft is now in hot water over its “Windows Vista Capable” stickers. Currently Microsoft is facing a lawsuit over these stickers, and the fact that to qualify, a machine only has to meet the minimum requirements on the most bare bones version of the operating system while all the effects are turned off. So in other words, the software giant is letting anybody slap a sticker on their computer saying that it’s Vista capable even if the machine can’t run any of those oh-so-touted new features. In fact, the vice president for Windows product management, Mike Nash, has written, “I PERSONALLY got burnt. … Are we seeing this from a lot of customers? … I now have a $2,100 e-mail machine.” It’ll be interesting to see what Microsoft does to make this latest PR disaster go away.
