Monopoly, Business Tactics, and Digital Imperialism at its best

This is an example of a corporation implementing and expanding its monopoly throughout the Philippine market through this business strategy of increasing the bulk of digital imperialism throughout the country.

Some will say that the consumer/customer is being cheated in the process, but why let oneself be cheated if there are hell a lot of alternatives out there?

There's also a news that some State may drop Office software and use a new document standard called OpenDocument format that is used in OpenOffice and StarOffice.

Another controversy out there in the wild is that Ballmer vowed to 'kill' Google. Some sneakpeeks:

In a sworn statement made public Friday, Mark Lucovsky, another Microsoft senior engineer who left for Google in November 2004, recounted Ballmer's angry reaction when Lucovsky told Ballmer he was going to work for the search engine company.

"At some point in the conversation, Mr. Ballmer said: 'Just tell me it's not Google,'" Lucovosky said in his statement. Lucovosky replied that he was joining Google.

"At that point, Mr. Ballmer picked up a chair and threw it across the room hitting a table in his office," Lucovosky recounted, adding that Ballmer then launched into a tirade about Google CEO Eric Schmidt. "I'm going to f***ing bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again. I'm going to f***ing kill Google." Schmidt previously worked for Sun Microsystems and was the CEO of Novell.

Oh shucks, what a pity!
