I just came across some photos by Niall Kennedy, taken at the introduction of Microsoft’s latest money-making monstrosity, Microsoft Live. Just what I want, ads in my word processor. I don’t want to waste any more breath commenting on the product; it’s the presentation that interests me. Or appalls me, to be more accurate.
How can the most successful technology company in history, run by the richest man in the universe, stand in front of the world with such incredibly lame slides in their presentation? They look like something put together by a high school kid who just discovered clip art and shaded backgrounds.
Is it just me? You be the judge
Here’s one of Bill’s slides…
Makes me want to scream! Geez…the two headings aren’t even lined up vertically!
And what the hell are those four double-headed-arrow things?
For contrast, here’s one of Steve’s slides from a few years back (his current images are even better, but couldn’t find any good shots of those)
Here’s a link to all of Niall’s photos. Be warned, they are not for the faint of heart (or anyone with any aesthetic sense.)
