The Olympics – A Microsoft Experience

In an article titled “Olympics Online, With a Hook” in tomorrow’s New York Times, John Markoff writes about how Microsoft and NBC are offering the Olympics online – as long as you install Microsoft’s Silverlight web browser plug-in to watch it.

Too bad NBC decided to go down this path with its Olympic content this year. Of course, as a new iPhone 3G owner, I’d have much preferred that NBC embraced the proprietary Apple media approach!

Oh well – I suppose I could try to deal with all of this on my virtual Windows XP machine on my Mac – but I really just can’t be bothered.
