Microsoft's trouble

The Economist: Microsoft’s greatest challenge, like IBM’s before it, could be internal: how to transform itself.

The Register also has an article on Palm versus and why (Palm believes) PocketPC will fail: Manufacturers going the Microsoft way therefore have little scope for differentiation, are forced to compete on price, and will get killed. Not that many of them are doing so – while the already-anointed PC ringwraiths have moved into the PocketPC market, the handset companies have looked at the model, looked at the history books and beaten a swift retreat.
