Woke up this morning to the elevator being out of service–again (and this was the sign that was up)!
Thank G-d our automobiles and airplanes aren’t as unreliable (generally).
Anyway, I didn’t mind walking a little more, and I got a chuckle out of this sign.
Of course, less funny this morning was news of Microsoft’s $6.2 billion! dollar writedown on their Internet division.
For a long time, Microsoft has been waiting for the elevator to pick them up and take them to virtual heaven, but instead everyday they try to buy (e.g. aQuantive for $6.3 billion all cash in 2007) their way there, and they end up in a place a lot hotter and nastier.
Microsoft can still make a comeback, but it’s past time for them to unleash their creative juices again.
What type of name is Bing (bing-bong) for a search engine, anyway? 😉
