Forbidden Fruit: Microsoft Workers Hide Their iPhones.

Microsoft Corp. employees are passionate users of the latest tech toys. But there is one gadget love that many at the company dare not name: the iPhone.

The iPhone is made, of course, by Microsoft's longtime rival, Apple Inc. The device's success is a nagging reminder for Microsoft executives of how the company's own efforts to compete in the mobile business have fallen short in recent years. What is especially painful is that many of Microsoft's own employees are nuts for the device.

So...stupid. Why do they have to be "dedicated" to their phones?

Thanks for posting Jan.

Thanks for that, but you can understand MS's point of view with the Coke and Pepsi anaology.

"Maybe once a year I'm in a meeting with Steve Ballmer," said this employee. "It doesn't matter who's calling, I'm not answering my phone."
And of course, if he wasn't using an iPhone it would be. "Excuse me Mr Ballmer. My wife wants to know what I want for dinner".

I know an employee of MS who is pretty high up the food chain. This person uses an Iphone and makes no bones about it. This person catch a little flack now and then; but nothing punitive in any way.

I'd probably hide mine from Balmer, too. He's always been excitable and unpredictable. I'm actually surprised he didn't actually stomp on the phone...

Which gives more reason MS should try harder to improve their WM line, and release it early next time!
