Microsoft Garage

Microsoft is doing what ?

Part of the ‘new’ Microsoft strategy is to be more open to their customers. Listening to feedback, earlier access to previews and cross-platform support are some of these new ‘openness’ changes.

But recently Microsoft unveiled yet another first…Their Garage.

This is the name their give to their ‘idea factory’…….a place where Microsoft employees are encouraged to work on their own ideas outside of their normal work responsibilities and management.
Some of these ideas will be turned into Apps, some will be incorporated into existing products and others will be purely for fun.
