Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Poll result It's official: the unholy spawn of the Microsoft-Yahoo! coupling shall forthwith be known as Microhoo!, following a resounding victory for the neologism in our recent reader poll.

In the end, Microhoo! secured no less than 30! per! cent! of the 4,249 votes cast, soundly thrashing YaMicrohoosoft! into second spot.

The results were:

  • Microhoo! - 30 per cent (1282 votes)
  • YaMicrohoosoft! - 20 per cent (840)
  • Microshoo! - 17 per cent (722)
  • YahSoft! - 12 per cent (530)
  • Mahoo! - 10 per cent (424)
  • Mihoo! - 7 per cent (296)
  • MiYahoo! - 4 per cent (155)

Naturally, this historic decision requires a suitable logo and corporate mantra to best express the core values of the Microhoo! paradigm, and our Strategy Boutique has brainstormed without respite to offer Microhoo! shareholders this ultimate embodiment of its commitment to the end-user demographic:

Microhoo! Cares!

So there you have it: the glorious dawn on a new era of peace on Earth, an end to world hunger and a better future for our children and our children's children in the warm embrace of Microhoo! ®

Oh alright then - it was one of you lot who came up with the Microhoo! Cares! slogan. We can't remember who, but he or she is cordially invited to fire up the joss-sticks, stick on the whalesong CD and partake of a large line of Bolivian marching powder, washed down with one of those bloody Mexican beers with a slice of lime wedged into the top of the bottle.
