No one much does these days.


True. Future of marketing. Bash bash bash, wine wine wine, and say little about your products.

MS hasnt been playing nice either.

Exactly this. And I think that's probably where it's coming from. Companies are starting to think for themselves and do their own thing.

Hello,

For what it is worth, Adobe, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, et al, do cooperate on a lot of security issues, especially when multiple vendors are involved.

And they are also now competing more against each other. Look at Adobe vs. Microsoft, for example - while Flash may have Silverlight in a headlock, now Acrobat has Word in its face. In terms of search (and ads delivered via search) it's Google vs. Microsoft vs. Yahoo; also, Microsoft hasn't exactly dried up and faded away in terms of mobile (Google's other big business); Android, in terms of all its formfactors, has Microsoft to deal with. Google can't dismiss Windows Phone or ModernUI, and it certainly can't dismiss Bing (or Microsoft Advertising, for that matter), regardless of what Yahoo does in terms of that partnership. Adobe certainly can't dismiss Word (which is already threatening to make Pagemaker irrelevant, in addition to being a serious threat to Acrobat) - what if Google wins the mobile battle with Android, but loses the skirmishes against Bing and Microsoft Advertising? Android tablets and smartphones with Google's Chrome browser, but with Bing and Microsoft Advertising at the core of search is both possible and plausible - now. The same applies even to Chromebooks. Not war, but straight business.

Microsoft being nibbled to death is now less and less likely.

Do they google in your country? MS has been sued hundred of times over patent infringement by private companies as well as the UK and US governments.
