+ - Craig Mundie blames Microsoft's product delays on cybercrime->

whoever57 writes: In an interview in Der Spiegel, Craig Mundie blames Microsoft's failure in mobile on cyber criminals. Noting that Microsoft had a music player before the iPod and a touch device before the iPad, he claims a failure to execute in Microsoft resulted in Microsoft losing its "leadership". The reason for the failure to execute, in his words: "During that time, Windows went through a difficult period where we had to shift a huge amount of our focus to security engineering. The criminal activity in cyberspace was growing dramatically ten years ago, and Microsoft was basically the only company that had enough volume for it to be a target. In part because of that, Windows Vista took a long time to be born."
