And they say Apple has a reality distortion field…?

Microsoft Development Director Craig Mundie in an interview with “Der Spiegel” (via BGR):

“We had a music player before the iPod,” he said. “We had a touch device before the iPad. And we were leading in the mobile phone space. So, it wasn’t for a lack of vision or technological foresight that we lost our leadership position. The problem was that we just didn’t give enough reinforcement to those products at the time that we were leading. Unfortunately, the company had some executional missteps, which occurred right at the time when Apple launched the iPhone. With that, we appeared to drop a generation behind.”

Eh… yeah, sure, Craig – that’s exactly what happened…
