Hilarious Hi Tech Cock Ups


One of the funniest ‘industry’ books I’ve read for a long time. Offers an interesting alternative perspective on such things as the rise of Microsoft, IBM’s repeated (inadvertent) efforts and ultimate success in killing OS/2 and the downfall of Ashton-Tate among others. I just lost most of a sunday reading it straight through. Laugh out loud funny – some of the appalling corporate stupidity that has been committed in the hi tech industry is just hilarious, albeit slightly tragic due to its vast, utter ineptitude.

In the interests of disclosure, this is my first foray into the amazon associates program. I figure I send enough money their way, maybe I can get some back in return 🙂
