Cartoon of the Week: HoloLens: Slapping Lipstick on a Pig?
This week, Microsoft announced Windows 10 – along with a new holographic computing headset called HoloLens. In short, they introduced a competitor to Google Glass – just as Google announced that sales of their product will stop later this month. Microsoft has never been particularly innovative, nor have they gained the same product evangelism that other tech companies (ahem, Apple) have gained – but they hope that’s all about to change. There’s just one small problem: their “new” technology isn’t all that new, and is built on a legacy system that’s unlikely to get users excited. Even with all the PR in the world, Microsoft will actually need to invest their money in innovative products if it wants to earn the love of it’s users and hang with the cool kids.
