Satya Nadella (@satyanadella) in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”

Shakespeare’s play gets the Microsoft treatment.

Yikes, I dunno what do Shakespeare and Windows 8.1 have in common? – ed

ACT I SCENE I

Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Wash.
Enter Hamlet, followed by Ghost.
Ghost: O hi Hamlet.
Hamlet: Yes?
Ghost: Damn it, Hamlet!
(Exit Ghost.)
Hamlet: Aw, crap.
(Exit Hamlet.)

Have a nice day, Bill Gates (microsoft/tech/computers)

Once upon a time, there was a Redmondian who worked at Microsoft. His name was Bill Gates. One day, the late Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) works in Cupertino. He decided to destroy every computer in every office and in every home.  Obviously, I dunno what happens in ’95.  This Jacksonville native goes in spaaaace. Windows ’95 gets the “Start” button (8.1: goes to the Start screen) and taskbar (present in every Windows version). The Oklahoma City bombings. DVDs. Toy Story. eBay. Galileo goes to Jupiter.  And Mir greets Atlantis.

Happy birthday, Microsoft!

We continue our adventure to Windows 7’s journey from Redmond to every single place on the planet (add the poor, billg). Give us a 39th birthday to Microsoft: Happy birthday to you/Happy birthday to you/Happy birthday, you monopoly… What the heck is going on?! But only XP is me, Satya. Just get an Android from Google Play? Or an iPhone from the Apple Store?? Get it off, Tim Bernes-Lee, thanks to the Exxon-Valdez spill, the geomagnetic storm that disrupt electricity from Hydro-Quebec, Game Boys, the Berlin Wall, and the WWW?!
