'Microsoft sucks', says top blogger

MICROSOFT's formerly tame blogger has bitten the software company that made his name when it employed him as a "technology evangelist".

Robert Scoble writes the Scobleizer web log, one of the most-read sources of technology commentary on the internet.

He owes his status to the three years he spent at Microsoft, where he was given free rein to comment on the company's affairs from the inside. The Economist magazine has credited Scoble with playing a significant role in softening the software giant's former reputation for monopolistic bullying.[font size="1"]

"The words are empty," Scoble responded. "Microsoft's internet execution sucks (on the whole). Its search sucks. Its advertising sucks. If that's 'in it to win', then I don't get it."
