Friday Memo: Murky pool death … Pacific mayor … Microsoft shuffle poll
The hotel pool drowning in Seattle: There are so many odd aspects to the drowning of a WSU student at a Quality Inn in Seattle last month that we don’t know where to begin to tell you. All we can say is the pool was so murky it was hard to find the victim, and what’s more, no one actually went into the water to look. Seriously?
Microsoft’s bet to be king of the hill: Well, Microsoft is still the force in software, but it’s trying to move up in the smartphone, tablet and search markets and the mixing up and renaming of positions at the company is geared, in part at least, to that end. Do you think Microsoft will ever have a significant share of the smartphone and tablet markets? Vote in our poll.
The troubled city of Pacific has a new mayor. Now that controversial mayor Cy Sun has been recalled, the town’s new mayor is the city council prez, who was voted into the position last night. Would you want that job?
