Microsoft the Microsoft with the Microsoft

In 1996, I taught a class for Associated Press on using Windows 95. Some class members thought that Microsoft was the Internet. There was no distinction between Windows 95, Internet Explorer, MSN, and the other websites. It was all Microsoft.

“How can I access the Microsoft?”

This just solidifies that. Go Microsoft yourself.

Despite everything, some folks just don’t understand hyperlinks. You would think that the e-mail announcing this article would have contained the URL.

But I can see why it didn’t. The headline linking the story is not the same as the headline on the story. The article is not mentioned in the links for the print version, or for the section in which it appeared in the print version, though if I had the print version in front of me I may have jumped directly to the “Tech” section. And a search for terms known to be in the article didn’t find anything recent.
