Simple equation: work for Microsoft, mention how even Microsoft loves Apple's new G5, provide picture...and find yourself unemployed. Who's at fault? Frankly, the blogger--he choose to work for Microsoft and forgot that the company is not only an exceptionally savage corporation, and somehow also forgot that Microsoft has never had a sense of humor. Ever.
He describes the actual moment of firing, and has some honest, straightforward thoughts on the issue. I admire his candor and restraint.
Best of luck finding a new position, Michael.
