Microsoft Can't Stop Talking about Azure
Once Microsoft pre-announces a product with massive competitive implications,
it simply won't stop talking about it 'til the darn thing ships -- no matter
how long it takes. The idea is to convince customers that Microsoft is the most
important game in town, even if it doesn't have a product.
That's what's happening now with Azure, Microsoft's upcoming cloud services
platform. Latest case in point: a speech
by David Treadwell that treads over some old Azure ground and then added
some news in the form of a real, live (or is that Live?) demo.
I'm not how much was real and how much was Memorex, but Treadwell showed how
he could launch a document and then make it available to others over the Web.
Sort of like Google Docs, I guess.
