Or do you have a really big telescope pointed at Redmond? Am I that old that you are asking me about retirement? Last year, it was all about Vista. They just don’t need to be there. . It sounds like a really fun job, but keeping an unblinking eye must have its fair share of pains. I’m trying to do an interview here.” Gates said to me after Jobs walked off, “Do you know who that was?” I didn’t.

If you don’t have a TV, you tend to get up and out of the apartment more, I’ve found. Template:Characters/Line of Sight Template:Characters/Enemy Contact. I love learning new things every single day. MJ has been “Watching” the tech industry a long time now, from Unix to Windows, pretty amazing. Gates said: “He’s the head of Apple.”.

That’ll be comical. I feel like blogging has given me a whole new lease on my career. We were out in the open in the Microsoft booth. I waited and waited. It’s just a thing called discipline and realizing that you don’t always need to be the star.

Finally, the answer to why Jobs is so bitter. Did you study journalism in college or university? I was interviewing Gates on the show floor at Comdex in Las Vegas. Mary Jo was born December 15, 1927 in Indianapolis to Daniel and Nora Foley. Luckily, for me at the time, tech was starting to boom in my home state of Massachusetts. Finally I said to Jobs: “Do you think you could come back another time? You have been assimilated.

All in all, I’d say I have a good rapport with the majority of Microsoft folks. If so, why did you choose journalism?

I make/made stuff people love to use: Template:Characters/Power and Empire Looking forward to future interviews so that I can be introduced to more MS news sources! It’s not about you, how funny or smart or clever you are. Mary Jo Foley is a mainstay of the Microsoft Tech Industry. Excellent interview Long!

No wonder you’re a blogger, you’ll nevefr make it in the real world. TV is bad; I am good. You’re really going back. Didn’t you cover Microsoft way back when, like before Windows 95? Mostly person, sometimes stuff.

I want to keep doing this for as long as I’m able.

Yep, I actually wrote about Microsoft for the very first time in 1984. I hate to drive and am not a good driver. Nah — I just decided when I moved to NYC in 1999 that I wanted to force myself to get out and enjoy all the cool things this city offers.

Template:Characters/True Faith and Allegiance How do you organize a day when you can ‘do anything’? Mary Jo Foley is a mainstay of the Microsoft Tech Industry. They know I’m doing my job.

Gates and Jobs started chatting. I’m reading this to learn more about MJ and to read her responses to Long’s (quite good) questions, not his own little asides.

I’ll reconsider it for future interviews.

And she’s broken several quite infamous Microsoft stories over the years, most negative – but that’s what people want to hear. Is it true you imposed as a Microsoft employee and rode the Microsoft bus all day long?

Mary Patricia Foley is a character created by Tom Clancy and appears in many of his novels that revolve around the life of Jack Ryan, Sr.. She and her husband Ed Foley were CIA case officers in Moscow, USSR, the early 1980's. And I don’t have a TV, so that helps lessen a few possible distractions….

Worst moment?

Really, I don’t even think my 5yr old son would be so pathetic, but at 5yrs old at least he’s got an excuse. So you are the official Microsoft Watcher. She follows the reporters axiom, that a closed mouth and open ears hear a lot.. @Sam: i don’t mind the comments, they’re funny. There are so many Softies, former Softies, Softie customers, Softie partners and Softie competitors all over the globe that you can watch Microsoft from anywhere these days. I read Foley’s Unblinking Eye column several times per week so it’s really nice to hear where she’s coming from.

Join Facebook to connect with Mary-Jo Foley and others you may know. Do you feel like just putting that all aside someday? For example, interviewee didn’t have a clue what he or she was talking about? if this were a comic, the comments would appear in little yellow boxes. Thanks MJ. Now look what you’ve done. If I can’t be a limo, I’d settle for being a Microsoft Corporate Shuttle (with a driver, of course). I love the chase and the fun of getting a new piece of info first. Mary Jo Foley, or otherwise accurately nicknamed the “Microsoft Watcher” has done both.

I am just one of a flock. She is probably the most knowledgeable Microsoft Tech Reporter due to her strong internal contacts within Microsoft. Great interview, Long, I love MJ’s work. She follows the reporters axiom, that a closed mouth and open ears hear a lot.. She has been known to hang around lunchrooms listening for tidbits of information. I think if I were starting out as a budding journalist these days, I would have double-majored in journalism and some kind of tech field so that I wouldn’t have to start from zero in figuring all this geeky stuff out. Everyone is sometimes.

Mary-Jo Foley is on Facebook. I start my day by checking my RSS feeds and surfing the Web to see what’s going on. Long: Hey Microsoft, if you want to hide secrets from MJ, hold meetings in a car park! Template:Characters/Full Force and Effect

This is a comment on a really old post… but hey, I’ll still comment.

Yes, I was a journalism major in college. (Yes, I was a child prodigy, for those trying to do the math.) A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed Norlander’s departure, which was first reported Thursday by ZDNet‘s Mary-Jo Foley. Are there any plans to retire? Everyone’s still falling for it, even when I tell them outright. I usually do a couple posts and other freelance assignment work and then make breakfast or lunch (depending on how fast I am). MyPal: unofficial Melbourne myki mobile app, Omny Studio: enterprise podcast hosting, PTVGlass: Melbourne bus, tram & train timetable on Google Glass, Map2Glass: type and send addresses to Google Glass, SoundGecko: text-to-speech web reader, ChevronWP7: Windows Phone community unlocking, MetroTwit: Twitter app for Windows, Speedo Plus: Windows Phone GPS app, Bing Image Archive: browse daily backgrounds and Windows UI Taskforce: crowdsourced bug tracker. I’d rather not name names, in either example, because old Softies never go away — they just come back in new (and usually higher-level) jobs. Keep up the good work MJ and same to you Long. So far, I haven’t really glommed onto videoblogging or podcasting, but plain-old blogging is a blast. There are many Microsoft watchers. https://www.istartedsomething.com/20070526/inside-insiders-mary-jo-foley What type of Microsoft products or services do you have on your radar screen this year? One of my funniest interview moments happened during the very first time I interviewed Bill Gates. Melbourne, Australia. But as soon as the first IBM PCs came out, I rushed out and bought one so I could check it out. I wish this blog was updated more often, but I understand you are into app development now.

I was blacklisted for some things I wrote but I outlasted the blacklisters (or their memories, or both). Mary Jo was born on September 9, 1941, in St.

(Hey, at least I know and admit this. What do you think? Why do you think I moved to NYC?) I waited and waited. I was brand new to covering technology. She probably knows more code-names than exists. @Sam: Point taken, but I made it quite short and noticeable for people to skip over. Long: You broke the universe! What was the best moment during your time writing about Microsoft? Being WRONG! This is an excellent interview Longhorn. She was a graduate of St. Philip Neri School, St. Mary's High School and attended Marian College. Urban legends are a wonderful thing. i am a secret MJ fan so no doubt I’m biased.

Inside the Insiders is a series of interviews with some of the most recognized and outspoken Microsoft influentials, journalists and enthusiasts I know. She has actually been blacklisted by Microsoft after reporting three days before the public availability of Windows 2000, which Microsoft advertised as "a standard in reliability," a leaked memo from Microsoft reported on by Mary-Jo Foley revealed that Windows 2000 had "over 63,000 potential known defects.

This was good! Dearing, Mary J.-----Mary Jo Dearing 83, of Indianapolis, departed this life April 13, 2011. But the reason I rode the shuttle was because of my driving ineptitude more than for its tip-gathering potential. Template:Characters/Commander in Chief This page was last edited on 28 August 2012, at 01:04. Gates said: “He’s the head of Apple.” Yeah, not an auspicious beginning…but my very first story on Microsoft came out really well in spite of it all. So no thoughts of retirement yet. User experience entrepreneur You’re a freelance writer, what do you do every day? Dmitri Yazov, Template:Characters/Clear and Present Danger This year, I’m paying close attention to Windows Server 2008, the various Microsoft services (sometimes known as Live, sometimes known as MSN), and anything with a codename that I can scare up. It’s not a moralistic thing, as some assume. Finally I said to Jobs: “Do you think you could come back another time? But do we really need all this little ‘aside’ comments of your after almost every answer she gives?
I never flipped a burger in any Microsoft cafeteria — girl scout’s honor! All of you might want to check out this article: http://macdailynews.com/index.php/weblog/comments/13904/.
