What Microsoft Does Best

I find myself thinking two things about Microsoft in the media lately:  1) They just keep missing the consumer mark, and more often 2) Microsoft isn't even in this conversation.

The main obsession these days both inside Microsoft and outside is Apple getting a bigger market cap.  Here is a piece from the Seattle PI on the market cap, and here is a piece from the WSJ about a re-org in the devices division.  Both seem to be about the same subject if you ask me.

I don't know if Microsoft is ever going to get the consumer thing figured out.  Chasing after the others just does not seem to work anymore.  

I do know that Microsoft has everything it needs to dominate in the business market -- from SMB to the Enterprise.  Why can't that be cool enough to be it?
