Poll: Microsoft and mojo – is this a cool company, or what?

Kip Kniskern

A blog post the other day on CNBC heralded some Microsoft numbers, and pointed to Windows 10, Bing, Azure, and a recovering stock price as indications that Redmond has its “mojo” back. Of course, in a quick search on “Microsoft” and “mojo.” we found articles from 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 proclaiming the same thing, so it’s probably more of a tired tech pundit cliche than a noticeable change in direction for the company.

Still, life has been good for Microsoft recently, and the future seems bright. Are you as impressed as CNBC? Take our poll below and let us know where you think Microsoft stands:
