Microsoft is in Denial Again

They did it!



Summary: Microsoft is being accused of "hand washing" (or whitewashing) the battery problems that were found in Vista 7

THE battery issues [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] identified by many people in Vista 7 required Microsoft to "investigate" for almost a week. Why did that take so long?



As expected, Microsoft spokespeople blame someone else. It is never ever Microsoft's fault. Never. Saying so would have an adverse impact on shareholders' value.

Microsoft blogs (sometimes paid by Microsoft) are pushing the Microsoft line which is denial and even calling this bug a "feature". The bias is so telling that it takes a vegetable to miss it. What an amazing spin. Needless to say, the public is not buying Microsoft's blame-shifting game quite so easily.

Users Dispute Microsoft's Explanation of Windows 7 Battery Problems



[...]

Within minutes, Windows 7 users who have experienced those problems disagreed, calling the explanation "hand washing" and noting that if the company's conclusion was correct, then many affected users must be "under some sort of bizarre bad battery curse."

[...]

"I completely reject Steven Sinofsky's explanation. It's simple hand-washing," said a user identified as "Btstech" on the support thread. "There are hundreds of postings here explaining the problem. Immediately after installing Windows 7, people's batteries are effectively 'dying.' Numerous people have purchased NEW batteries and encountered the same behavior immediately.

"The OS is causing this for some reason. Not saying it's damaging the batteries, but it's rendering them useless," Btstech continued. "This is a no brainer. There is a problem here with the new operating system and the way it interacts with various laptops and it must be fixed."


So who can we trust? Actual users of Vista 7 or the company which, as we showed in the previous post, lies systematically?
