'Microsoft?' And how do you spell that again?
Homer Simpson believed to be alive and well and working in the Dubai Internet City.
Work on Microsoft’s new Internet City offices hit a minor snag last week.

After putting up an ‘M’ and then an ‘R’ the penny dropped, and work was halted.
Maybe Bill is planning on a rebranding to try and dodge a break-up ruling from the US Department of Justice? “Mr Gate's Famous Operating System Company” anybody?
