Microsoft’s all over today’s remainders, mainly because I haven’t found a stain remover that will get it out yet. I kid, I kid. When a Microsoft-centric blogger breaks down and buys an iPad, we all win—except for all those Redmond folks getting Windows Phone 7 phones. Also a fashion don’t and a survey that will hopefully make you feel better about yourself. Run down the remainders for Thursday July 22, 2010.
Noted Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley writes on her blog that she bought her first Apple product, an iPad; previously she’d avoided it because Apple users were “hostile and condescending.” If I went by that logic, here’s a (by no means complete) list of products and services I would never use: the subway, most comic book stores, several upscale restaurants, several high-end clothing chains, and Facebook.
Speaking of the above Ms. Foley, she also retweets a comment from a Microsoft worker saying that the company is giving Windows Phone 7 handset to every employee. As I recall, the last time Microsoft gave free stuff to their employees was when they couldn’t figure out any other way to get rid of all those copies of Windows ME.
I realize that sometimes you don’t know what to do with your iPad when you’re just walking around. Hint: the answer is not to buy a $50 shirt that has a pocket on the front with a transparent window. No. It’s not a good way to meet people.

Well, I guess, uh, one out of three ain’t bad?
