Microsoft joins the corporate chatter as companies go social

Yammer’s got some great numbers. Its software is used by five million people at 200,000 companies, nearly 85% of the Fortune 500 companies. What's more, reports suggest Yammer reached seven-figure revenues at least two years ago. But will it be the answer to Microsoft's social ambitions?

Steve Ballmer vs Alan Greenspan. Product marketing 1985-style [VIDEO]

I've always been a little afraid of Steve Ballmer. This video doesn't help. In 1985, on November 20, Microsoft released Windows 1.0. Steve Ballmer, ever the affable chap, stepped in front of the camera to sell this amazing new product.
