Bullet point engineering.

This is a perfect example of how stupid many people are. The scenario goes like this. A marketing head says, “We want voice activation in our mobile phone. Engineering says, “we’d need 18 months to get that to work right”. Marketing says, “Nope! you get 6 months! We NEED to have a bullet point on our powerpoint slide that says, ‘Voice Activation’. GET IT DONE!”

Then you have the moron consumers that say, “Oh yea, my Microsoft phone has Voice Commands just like Apple’s Siri”.

Now tell me. After watching this video do you REALLY think the Microsoft phone is “just like” the iPhone with Siri?
