This is just priceless. Microsoft came out in the media stating “New Zealand’s IT industry could fall behind like the British car industry did last century if the Government presses ahead with proposed new surveillance laws”.
Huh? Is this the same Microsoft that sold its collective soul to the American NSA through the PRISM scheme? Are they stupid? I am pretty sure the horse has bolted, and the public are on to them (although I sometimes wonder about that too. Do you use Windows? Then you are fair game). Perhaps they don’t like “unfair competition”?
