Obscenely blah corporate speak obviously from yet another committee does not make a good impression, does not help “sell” a “vision” or a “mission”, does not endear you to your customers.

Microsoft’s new vision/mission/whatever is “Create seamless experiences that combine the magic of software with the power of the internet across a world of devices.” Really?

No, really? If you must *have* a slogan, why not “Seamless software everywhere”? If a slogan barely fits in a tweet, it’s too long.

My favourite part of the whole thing is at the bottom of the page, where it says “Microsoft Confidential. FOR MICROSOFT INTERNAL USE ONLY.” Ah well. Maybe they fired whoever had the job to not put this on a public site with plenty of links pointing at it.
