Google Apps Profitable; Microsoft = Titanic?

Posted by Bob Warfield on June 5, 2009

Upon reading that Google Apps is a profitable business from Larry Dignan, one of my Enterprise Irregular blogging cohorts quipped that Microsoft was the Titanic and they’re standing in a couple inches of water soon to get much worse.

I responded:

Nah, there’s no water in the Titanic yet.  But the steel plates of the hull are extremely brittle, there is an iceberg coming up off the port bow, and Captain and Crew are at a party in full tux alternately listening to an entertainer named “Bing” and trying to get the attention of a lovely lady at the next table named “Bartz.”
