Submission + - Microsoft goes political to avoid irrelevance in post-PC era (politico.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Trying to survive in the post-PC era, Microsoft is turning to tried and true tricks from Evil Politics 101. First came the hiring of Mark Penn, a noted smear artist who headed up an anti-Google mudslinging campaign. Now they've hired one of Karl Rove's associates do do more of the same. Will attempting to tear down their rivals land Microsoft back on top, or will these actions be remembered as the last gasps of a company quickly becoming irrelevant?
