The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — barely came out of the gates before John Taschek let Comcast have it, and really you need to see the visual on this one. After the salute to the internet provider, talk circled around Microsoft’s release of Office for iPad. Is it important? Well, no one on the show seemed to use Office any more, except (maybe) at the office. The consensus was three years too late, but the real question is how long will it take to convert Redmond to a consumer cloud model.
Elsewhere, the Oculus Rift acquisition seemed to puzzle the Gang. Where is Facebook going and will they be taking us with them? For many, it seems like the Oculus purchase is for someone else; gamers with StarTrek helmets or refugees from the collapse of Windows and maybe XBox. Beam me up, Satya.
