From the Surface to social to SkyDrive, there’s a little something for everyone at Microsoft.
That’s at least according this neat infographic post that shows everything going on at Microsoft and how its products/services intertwine with each other. It appeared on the “Next at Microsoft” blog that’s edited by Steve Clayton, who just appeared on our weekly podcast last month to talk about what he sees on the horizon in 2013 — including natural user interfaces, machine learning, big data, 3D printing, and the rise of the “Internet of Things,” blending the physical and digital worlds.
Of course, Microsoft is facing increasingly tough competition for talent. It would be cool to see a similar infographic for the other big tech companies — Amazon, Google, Apple, Facebook — and compare it to Microsoft. Many believe Microsoft should not even be in the same conversation as the other four tech giants, while some think the Redmond software giant is turning into a sideshow.
