Apple vs Microsoft

Apple vs Microsoft

I am sitting now at the edge of my seat wondering: When will all this bad reputation and negative PR finally smite Microsoft down? How long can it keep standing its shaky grounds with all the competition out there? My answer is, if all other variables remain constant: never!

Yet now, the mother of all cheating possibilities and techniques, has to be the child of Web 2.0 and social media!

Before I list to you these ways, allow me to assure you that this post, does not, in anyway, promote cheating or praises it! Rather, I would like to think of this post as an eye opener to help you realize what could be going on behind your back, or maybe even in front of you!
