Wow! Now that really is a hard question to answer isn't it? If you listen to what 'Barmy' Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO and 43rd richest person on Earth, has to say then you might be forgiven for thinking it is Google (I'm going to f****** kill Google), or maybe Apple (I've got my kids brainwashed... you don't use an iPod) or even Linux (... a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches.)
For while I even thought it was me, given my recent experiences with an Xbox 360 which I have been without for the best part of a month thanks to red rings of death and a Microsoft repair which resulted in the return of an even more broken games console.
But now, it seems, the answer can be revealed. At least for this week. Engadget reports that Microsoft really hates DHL.
It would seem that DHL managed to break even more Xbox 360 consoles than Microsoft itself, although in fairness it did have a train wreck to help out whereas the whole Microsoft red rings problem could be said to be a train wreck for the Microsoft publicity machine. But anyway, getting back on track, some 21,600 Xbox consoles are said to have been written off by a combination of impact damage, wetting and pilfering following the crash.
No problem, surely? The courier, whose freight train was involved, would simply reimburse Microsoft for the loss, right? Well it seems not according to the Engadget story. It reports that Microsoft is claiming DHL refused to compensate for the loss and so has filed a complaint which demands some $2 million in damages instead.
So, does Microsoft hate anyone else more than DHL at the moment? Over to you, people...
