Microsoft is going through a major reorganization process supposed to help the company focus more on devices and services, but despite all these efforts, the tech giant has lost its cool factor.
That’s what former Microsoft evangelist Robert Scoble said in an interview with Fairfax Media, explaining that the Redmond-based company needed to do the same things as Google and Apple.
If his name doesn’t ring any bells to you, Scoble is a former technology evangelist at Microsoft who decided to leave the company in June 2006 to become the vice president of Podtech.net.
Former Employee Says That Microsoft Is No Longer Cool, Blames Steve Ballmer"Since I've left [Microsoft], what have they done that's interesting? Microsoft [Xbox] Kinect is the only thing I can think of and for a company that has 90,000 employees, to have only one product that you can point to that's innovative, that's pretty disappointing I think,” he said according to The Age.
"Compare that to Google, which is showing you self-driving cars, Google Glass and a phone that you can talk to, the Moto X, and on and on — automatic picture improvements on Google+ — It's a much more innovative company that is driving the future harder and faster."
