There’s something that Microsoft is doing much better than Apple. Not only doing it better, but improving with each and every day that goes by. It is a cutting-edge activity for large corporations, something that few businesses today have even tried, let alone got right. But Microsoft has got it right and is reaping the benefits.
What is this mysterious activity I’m talking about?
Microsoft is opening up like no other company I have ever seen. Just take a look at all the detailed information … that is coming out on weblogs written by the coders and managers working on each project.
These weblogs are … full of detail, full of facts, full of stories of success and sometimes failure.
It sounds really wonderful doesn’t it? People are watching the inner workings of Microsoft by reading blogs. Shouldn’t Apple do the same thing?

This was posted at Engadget. Oh I already have an iPod. In fact it is a 5Gb; the very first model. I quickly found out that I couldn’t fit my entire CD library on there so I developed my playlists and swapped music continuously. Now with smart playlists I don’t even think about it too much any more, I don’t really need another iPod until this one dies.
