The standard media…

What can you learn from Microsoft and Google?

What can you learn from Microsoft and Google?

Two weeks ago, Microsoft gave the middle finger to their partners - not once, but twice. What can you say -- they used both hands.

Meanwhile, Google did the exact opposite, embracing their partners and letting them feel comfortable with the future working with the company.
