MICROSOFT PLANS IPOD RIVAL
· The shift is likely to anger Samsung, Sony, Creative Technology and other manufactures that were persuaded to use Microsoft's software in their devices, because a Microsoft player would complete with theirs.
This is what happened when
· IBM / Apple / Company tried to "bypass" their long established declare network and started selling computers directly from their website (to save 15% dealer communication)
· GM tried to sell cars on its website bypassing dealer network.
· There was so much opposition from dealers in both cases that the move had to be dropped / withdrawn.
· Microsoft was only licensing its software to Samsung, Sony, creative. They are NOT Microsoft's dealers. Even then, Microsoft will now become a competitor!
· This is why, after 6 months, we will either shut down India Recruiter Or Stop further "Registration".
· We cannot be competition with our own partner websites!
