Hey Alexandro!

Well done with your project! I found it great that you started introducing yourself and giving all of us the possibility to get to know about you, then you increased complexity not only in your speech and vocabulary but also in the situations you were telling and your tone made me feel connected with all you said even though I wasn’t watching you.

Keep it up! Trust in yourself and never stop learning 😃

Hey Breiner!

Great job with your debate! I think is pretty aligned with the objective of this challenge and you exposed your point by defining key aspects of the language and how it is related with its different categories supported by research.

I encourage you to keep a uniform speed on your speech because sometimes I feel you speak a bit fast and it can be a bit difficult to understand. But aside from this, I loved your debate and the way in which you connect ideas and deliver them with a logic sequence enabling us to better understand what you want to say.

Keep that good work! Hope we can connect together and keep practicing 😃

Me encantó la experiencia realizando el proyecto, mi pronunciación a veces se complica y más si estoy nerviosa, hablar Inglés no es mi fuerte pero gracias al proyecto me incentivó a buscar la pronunciación, significado de las palabras y como dice el reto ¨a perder el miedo de hablar en Inglés¨. Gracias al team Platzi por realizar retos para motivarnos, seguir aprendiendo y ser parte de la comunidad gracias al aprendizaje. 😊😄 Gracias!!

FINAL PROJECT

Comparison between Samsung and Apple.

Apple and Samsung are two of the most famous brands in the world. Both are the favorites for the people, because they have the best features of the cell phones.

Since 2007 when was the first Iphone created, Apple had been the world leader until the appear of Samsung with the Android model two years later. Nowadays, Samsung has been the leader in sales in the world for nine years.

The other brands hardly any have fans, actually a few people buy cell phones like Huaweii, Alcatel, Xiaomi or something like that.

Two brands have so far the best performance because their characteristics stand out from the other brands, for that reason barely there are differences between both and are considered the phones most powerful in relation to its quality and price.

In all the world people have a Samsung or Iphone, hardly there is somebody that has not had to buy one before.

The Operative System of both brands have notable differences. For instance, Samsung uses Android, where Gmail is the most common application it has and the other brand, Apple works with IOS, where the most interesting App is Imessage, also this System is characterized for to keep a high data security.

In my opinion, I prefer to use Samsung, because I feel it is easy to handle and obviously these cell phones are cheaper. Another reason to choose Samsung over Apple, is because they have several models that I can pay for. However, Apple´s phones maintain a unique line of their models.

For 2022 people have been waiting for new launches of both brands. For example, Apple will launch the new Iphone 14 and Samsung their revelation Galaxy S22 in february. These new models will continue revolutionizing the mobile markets in the world. For that reason, I consider that Samsung will continue being the leader in their field, because The Galaxy S22 comes with a new processor, giving them a small advantage over Apple.

If these brands continue showing new technologies every year, we might see new mobiles with totally independent devices, even without necessity to handle.

If I had the opportunity to have a meeting with the Samsung brand team, I would say to them that they try to incorporate a device like Alexa, where it would be able to listen to our voices and pay for what we want to hear. Similarly, If they accept my imaginary proposal, they will get a huge profit for the revolutionary invention. I think as well that if Apple doesn´t work hard, It will lose more and more markets. But, If Samsung doesn’t look for a way to improve their data security, Apple will continue being the strongest brand in protecting people’s data.

If the Samsung brand continues to lead the mobile market in the world, it will be very difficult for Apple to displace them.

In the same context and finally, I think that Apple has difficulties to overcome to Samsung, mainly because this has better prices, a lot of models and technologies easier to handle for the people

MY JOURNAL

<h1>Week 1 🚵🏽‍♀️</h1>

📚 Take the course Inglés Intermedio B1: Verbos Infinitivos y Transitivos

Let us know what you expect from this course! 🤩

I hope to improve my english skills, especially speaking.

Thinking about your topic, find things one has to do to use it, or use some feature. For instance, if you’re talking about a laptop or Operative system, what do people have to do to use it? What could they find? 🤔

Write down your ideas, and then use vocaroo to express your point. Paste the vocaroo link here:

Samsung and Apple are two of the most famous brands in the world, mainly in the field of the cell phones, where people can find differents features that adjust to what they are looking for. One person when decide to buy a new mobile wants satisfy a necessity and feel comfort with kind of devices.

https://voca.ro/1Oz9fHJddfq5

This is the transcript of the audio. Keep it at hand 👀

I heard five quantifier: a lot of, a little, a lot, a bit, very much,

After doing the exercise, read the correct phrases aloud. Use this tool to check the pronunciation of unknown words 🗣️

Paste the vocaroo link here:

This will help us with our comparisons!

https://voca.ro/1mKoYqBR1Ao1

Compare your two chosen brands using these guide sentences:

People hardly buy ______.

The efforts that ______ does are barely enough.

In Amazon, barely anyone buys___.

Link the ideas and form a short paragraph (you can change the sentences if you wish). Practice it aloud 💪🏽

Since 2007 when was the first Iphone created, Apple had been the world leader until the appearance of Samsung with the Android model two years later. Nowadays, Samsung has been the leader in sales in the world for nine years.

The other brands hardly any have fans, actually a few people buy cell phones like Huaweii, Alcatel, Xiaomi or something like that.

Two brands have the best performance because their characteristics stand out from the other brands, for that reason barely there are differences between both and are considered the cell phones most powerful in relation to its quality and price.

In all the world people have a Samsung´s or Iphone, hardly there is somebody that has not had to buy one before.

https://voca.ro/12xSguB0hUeV

Complete the exercise here:

  1. This is a difficult! I hardly finished the first five questions.
  2. I am so hungry! I hardly ate anything for lunch.
  3. There hasn’t been much/ hardly any time to prepare for the meeting.
  4. Has it been raining a lot this week? No, not much at all!
  5. Is this last exercise really difficult? Not much, really.

https://voca.ro/1nOVWpDTauiL

What does another mean?

Another mean one more o additional thing. Something different but in singular noun.

What does other mean?

Is used when its mean to other thing or people in singular and plural.

Compare your brands again using “other” and “another in your sentences. Then, record yourself with vocaroo:

The Operative System of both brands has notable differences. For instance, Samsung use Android, where Gmail is the most common application it has and the other brand. Apple works with IOS, where the most interesting App is Imessage, also this System is characterized for to keep a high data security.

In my opinion, I prefer to use Samsung, because I feel it is easy to handle and obviously these cell phones are cheaper. Another reason to choose Samsung over Apple, is because they have several models that I can pay for. However, Apple´s cell phones maintain a unique line of their models.

https://voca.ro/1malSExZZjzL

Use the table below to convert words. Think about the most used words in your comparisons:

Apply these conversions into your sentences, and keep it at hand! 🙌🏼

What things made you prefer one brand over the other? Write down your ideas:

In my opinion, I prefer to use Samsung, because I feel it is easy to handle and obviously these cell phones are cheaper. Another reason to choose Samsung over Apple, is because they have several models that I can pay for. However, Apple´s cell phones maintain a unique line of their models.

And read aloud using vocaroo. Remember to keep this aligned to your topic.

https://voca.ro/1gpQ6rHjVgft

Two prepositions are used for events. So, think about what needs to happen for the market to change in favor of the other brand.

To give you some ideas:

  • Y brand will dominate the market until Q mark does this
  • My mom used Y brand until they launched this feature.

Since 2007 when was the first Iphone created, Apple had been the world leader until the appearance of Samsung with the Android model two years later. Nowadays, Samsung has been the leader in sales in the world for nine years.

This is the audio’s transcription 🎙️

Think about future launching dates, and write it down here in present simple:

  • Apple launches the new MacBook in June (example)

For 2022 people are waiting for the new launches of both brands. For example, Apple is expected to launch the new Iphone 14 and Samsung will launch their revelation Galaxy S22 in february. These new models will continue revolutionizing the mobile market in the world. For that reason, I consider that Samsung must keep the leadership in their field, because The Galaxy S22 comes with a new processor, giving them a small advantage over Apple.

https://voca.ro/1dlP31noVA1d

Is “must” the same as “have to”? 🤔

Is there something that must happen for your preferred brand to succeed? Write some connected sentences, and then record yourself.

Remember that you can check the pronunciation in this web site

I consider that Samsung must keep the leadership in their field, because The Galaxy S22 comes with a new processor, giving them a small advantage over Apple.

https://voca.ro/13dXYBM64ggA

Extra exercise - Brainstorm ideas of things we must, or must not do in these places:

  • At a party

  • At a shoes store

  • At the spa

  • We mustn´t to fight at the party.

  • We must fun at the party.

  • We must pay the bill at a shoes store.

  • We mustn´t take shoes without paying to the store.

  • We must relax at the spa.

  • We mustn´t be stressed at the spa.

  • [ ] Speculations

Define the probabilities:

May

Might

Could

Think about the two brands you chose, and speculate about they may, might or could do in the future. You can go wild here and think about all the new technologies out there 👀

If these brands continue showing new technologies every year, we might see new mobiles with totally independent devices and without necessity to handle.

https://voca.ro/1fRCjkzYmEMF

Let’s turn this up a little: Suppose you get the chance to join a feedback session with someone from the brand team. Record yourself making some suggestions to their product. Write it here:

And then paste the vocaroo link:

This transcript may be helpful

If I had the opportunity to have a meeting with the Samsung brand team, I would say to them that they try to incorporate a device like Alexa, where it would be able to listen to our voices and play that we want to hear.

https://voca.ro/1oQvTKfZ28jm

How do we construct a first conditional sentence?

Let’s keep speculating. Use the first conditional and think about hypothetical situations regarding the brands you selected. Write up to three sentences, link them and read them aloud

Record yourself and paste the link here:

If Samsung accept my imaginary proposal, they will get a huge profit for the revolutionary invention. I think as well that if Apple doesn´t work hard, It will lose more and more markets. But, If Samsung doesn´t better their data security, Apple will continue being the strongest brand in protecting people´s data.

https://voca.ro/1nmah98LPf1n

Follow the same structure as the one in the reading material. Write a short paragraph about how you see the other brand, and the difficulties that you believe they have:

In the same context, I think that Apple has difficulties to overcome to Samsung, mainly because this has better prices, a lot of models and technologies easier to handle for the people

Then, record yourself and share the link:

https://voca.ro/1evXjQD12rzr

What is a phrasal verb?

Phrasal verbs are compound for: It is a verb + a +preposition or an adverb. Their use to have severals meanings in differents contexts.

  1. In any moment Apple could back up to the world leader brand.
  2. If a some person the cell phone fall down, it will break down it.
  3. My son can pick cell phone up at the mobile store.
  4. Oh no!. Last night I found out the gift that my wife had for me. It was a newe Samsung Cell Phone.

  • …Cell phone was broken by the person.

  • …Cell phone was pick up by my son.

  • …The gift was discovered by me.

  • [ ] Indefinite compound pronouns

You probably used some of these already. And if not, check your previous texts, and optimize with the info given!

This transcript could help

In all the world people have a Samsung or Iphone, hardly there is somebody that has not had to buy one before.

Use this transcription (at the end) to follow the audio. Try to mimic Elena, and record yourself doing that. Compare your audio with the one in the class, and try to improve!

https://voca.ro/1lYwX9r4uoQt

Use when to optimize your previous ideas!

Think about in the past that influenced your work, study session or plans (either negative or positive). Write down some ideas:

  • Words that are already using prefixes

    Displace, Overcome.

  • Words that could be optimized be transforming them using prefixes.

    Disadvantage, Unnecessary

  • Lastly, apply this to your work!

    I consider that Samsung will mantain the leadership in their field, because The Galaxy S22 comes with a new processor, this being a disadvantage to Apple.

If these brands continue showing new technologies every year, we might see new mobiles with totally independent and will be unnecessary to handle by ourselves.

You can use phonetics to check your pronunciation, and record yourself:

https://voca.ro/12VJJORxc1f3

As the last class, here’s the list

  • Tomorrow Susan will go to the bank when she going to university.
  • My grandma will prepare lunch as soon as she get home.
  • Jeane will drop her daughter at school before arriving to her office.

Use this new grammar to express how likely you’re to buy or acquire a new product, either from your preferred brand or the counterpart.

This is the story Jhon wrote! Do the exercise. Identify the grammar rules you’ve learned so far.

There once was a man who lived in the middle of nowhere in the mountains. His name was Billy. He was used to living alone, although he enjoyed spending time in the forest surrounded by all the creatures you can ever imagine.

Like his father, Billy was a lumberjack who had always lived in the mountains. His best friends were coyotes, his enemies were mosquitos and the only thing that worried him was waking up too late and missing the sunrise.

But everything changed one day.

Billy was staring at the sky when all of a sudden, a strange silhouette approached him. He had nowhere to go, nowhere to hide. - He was perplexed.

I’ve been waiting for years to meet you, Billy. I have always wanted to talk to you but I was waiting for the right moment - the strange figure said.

Billy couldn’t move. A part of him was in shock and the other one wanted to scream. He couldn’t pronounce a word.

I’ve been to so many places, Billy, but I never encountered what I was looking for… you.

● Me? Billy said.

● Yes, you. Since the moment you were born you were meant to do great things. I’ve been watching you for decades and I recently realized I shouldn’t wait any longer.

● What is it that you want from me? Who are you? - Billy said after finding some courage.

● I’m in everything you see and you don’t see. Everything you do and undo… Everything you understand and misunderstand… Everything you have… It’s because of me.

Billy couldn’t understand what was happening. He was still speechless and breathless and he could barely move.

● Why do you want to know who I am if you already know it? You can’t just ask and answer what is obvious.

As the silhouette vanished, Billy started to realize he was not dreaming.

● Who is this? - Billy screamed.

● What are you looking for?

Silence filled the moment as the sun started to set.

A day passed and Billy decided to watch the clouds from the same place as the day before, to see if he was lucky or unlucky enough to meet that strange “silhouette” again.

And there it was… The strange silhouette waiting for him.

● Thank you for coming, Billy. I expected no less from you. ● I just needed to confirm that I was not crazy - Billy replied. ● That’s fair and let me tell you that you aren’t.

● Let’s get to the point, what do you want from me? - Billy asked. ● I’d love to give you a simple answer like you want it but, instead If you just keep doing what you have been doing, you will find it. You will find it!

Some lightning hit the ground. Billy shook his head and found himself in bed.

● Oh, it was a dream after all - Billy exclaimed as he was getting up.

Like any other day, Billy made some breakfast, he polished his ax and went into the woods. Everything was okay until he realized his shirt and pants were tighter than usual. His ax looked smaller than usual and he seemed to be taller than he was before. He couldn’t understand why but he kept walking.

He hit the first tree and it fell down immediately. He hit the second tree and the same happened. Billy was also stronger, so he wondered: ● What if something happened last night while I was sleeping?What if the lightning was real and the silhouette was real and the conversations we’ve had were real? There’s just one way to know it.

Billy ran and there it was… The strange silhouette waiting for him.

● What have you done to me? Billy asked.

● You are now like me. Mother nature has provided for you all these years. It’s your turn to take care of it. There wasn’t a day in which you starved, there wasn’t a day in which you were unsafe. It’s now your chance to help others live and survive. You will now take care of everything around you, the mountains, the woods, the rivers, the sky. Eventually you will find an inheritor, just like I found you.

A feeling of peace filled the air

as Billy realized he was no longer Billy.

Hello Aida🖐, I really liked your speech, you connected pretty well all the ideas. I agree with your opinions about the negative impact that working from home could have, but I still prefer it 🙃. As a recommendation I’d say that you need to practice a little more your pronunciation, the best tool that I’ve personally found to deal with that aspect is the IPA, and also Elsa Speak. In terms of vocabulary I guess I identified these two issues:

  • Social isolate ➡ social isolation.
  • Office politics ➡ office policies.

Overall, I think you did a good job, keep it up 👆.

Audio Del proyecto Final:

https://voca.ro/1aXPPHI2tPpH

My project is about Windows against Linux. I want to indicate differences between both operating systems with topics like security, friendly use, compatibilities, etc.

People hardly buy Linux as is an operating system for advanced user, for other side, Windows is a operating system installed in more of 75 percent of computer around the world. The efforts that Linux do in order to will can be accepted for entire World does are barely enough, for that reason In Amazon, barely anyone buys Linux operating system.

Windows is very easy to use, but there is another operating system friendly: macOS installed in the Apple computers.
When people want to buy a PC one of mains razon’s of take in count is the price. Computers with Windows are expensive. For that reason, people ask for other options like Linux computers.
Windows is weakful and probably the heaviest operating system about memory ram use, but its users are happiness.

Myself prefer Linux to windows in my Work office, while I prefer windows to Linux in my home, but as I prefer working in my home to Work in the office, I can say that Windows is my favorite.

Microsoft used only commands interface operating systems until to launch Windows 3.0.

Microsoft launches Windows 12 in 2025 – October.
Linux Mint distribution based on Ubuntu 20.04 launches only in 64 bits on July 1st.

Windows must send with mayor frequency test patches to its users

• Linux May reach more users in next future.
• Windows might launch more frequency patches.
• Linux Could to get leader Windows market.

  • If windows lost the marketing leadership, Linux will be the new leader.
  • If Linux get better in compatibility, it´s going to be best marketing co-leader.
  • If Windows and Linux join compatibilities, all users will be grateful.

Linux lately has a big problem. It hardly to compete with a company that has a market monopoly recently. All great manufacture companies really to want to making business with the market leader.

We must Ask around the Linux users if all of them come forward with money apport. It’s a way to figure out solutions to get up!

Many users as windows as Linux figure out that the better way to ¬¬¬¬get over the bugs is test beta versions, but I agree about the Linux community Tester is bigger than the Windows Community.

• [ ] Let’s get started
Let us know what you expect from this course! 🤩
I Hope practice more and more. I like this language, but I had practiced almost nothing. This is a great opportunity.

• [ ] Past necessities: using “have to” in the past
Thinking about your topic, find things one has to do to use it, or use some feature. For instance, if you’re talking about a laptop or Operative system, what do people have to do to use it? What could they find? 🤔
Write down your ideas, and then use paste to express your point. Paste the vocaroo link here:

https://voca.ro/14m9dgLn5jlW

My project is about Windows against Linux.
I want to indicate differences between both operating systems.
Topics like security, friendly use, compatibilities, etc.

• [ ] Quantifiers as adverbs
This is the transcript of the audio. Keep it at hand 👀
C:\Users\johnn\OneDrive\Cursos\Idiomas\Ingles\English Platzy\ 03_quantifiers-as-adverbs_exercises_620a1d7c-fa60-489d-b3c7-37cd88fab6f5.pdf

A Lot
A bit
A Much
A Llitle

He eats a lot of fruits and vegetables
He eats Little chocolate every month
He Likes speaking very much
The Most fruit and vegetables don´t cost very much

• [ ] Practice: quantifiers as adverbs
After doing the exercise, read the correct phrases aloud. Use this tool to check the pronunciation of unknown words 🗣️
Paste the vocaroo link here:

https://voca.ro/1na9xxQjuvWJ

This will help us with our comparisons!

Let’s practice! Fill in the blanks in the following sentences using much, many or a lot of.

Do you have MANY things in your apartment?
She has A LOT OF plants.
I visited A LOT OF interesting places in South America.
They have A LOT OF brothers and sisters.
There isn’t MUCH time left to finish.
Is there MUCH snow in Canada right now?
Simon knows some Italian, but not MUCH.

• [ ] Expressing quantities with “hardly” and “not much”
Hardly- Barely / not much / not many

Compare your two chosen brands using these guide sentences:
People hardly buy Linux.
The efforts that Linux do in order to will can be accepted for entire World does are barely enough.
In Amazon, barely anyone buys Linux operating system.
Link the ideas and form a short paragraph (you can change the sentences if you wish). Practice it aloud 💪🏽

People hardly buy Linux because is an operating systems for advanced user, for other side, Windows is a operating system installed in more of 75 percent of computer around the world… The efforts that Linux do in order to will can be accepted for entire World does are barely enough, for that reason In Amazon, barely anyone buys Linux operating system.

• [ ] Practice: expressing quantities with “hardly” and “not much”
Complete the exercise here:

This is a difficult exam! I hardly finished the first five questions.
I am so hungry! I hardly ate anything for lunch!
There hasn’t been not much time to prepare for the meeting.
Has it been raining a lot this week? No, not much at all!
Is this last exercise really difficult? No much, really.

• [ ] Other and another
What does another mean?

R.- Another means “one more”, an additional, alternative or difference.
What does other mean?
When it goes with a singular noun, means the second or the opposite of a set of two persons, animals or things.
When it goes with a plural noun, means something difference from ones indicate previously.
Compare your brands again using “other” and “another in your sentences. Then, record yourself with vocaroo:
https://voca.ro/1nEuv7ctLKAb
Windows is very easy to use, but there is another operating system friendly: macOS installed in the Apple computers.
When people want to buy a PC one of mains razon’s of take in count is the price. Computers with Windows are expensive. For that reason, people ask for other options like Linux computers.
Challenge:
Would you like another cup of tea?
The other movie is so much better than this one.
Do you know another lawyer?
Some of the others players will arrive later tonight.

• [ ] Using suffixes to turn adjectives into nouns
Use the table below to convert words. Think about the most used words in your comparisons:
Verb Adjective Noun
Weak Weakfull Weakfullness
Probable Probably Probability
Happy Happyful Happiness

Apply these conversions into your sentences, and keep it at hand! 🙌🏼

Individual do something:

Verb: to Employ
To make and adjective (-ee): referee, employee
To make a noun (-ment): employment

Capable of being:

To make and adjective (-able, -ible): reliable, terrible
To make a noun (-ity): reliability

Full of or notable of:

To make and adjective (-ful): Grateful, careful
To make a noun (-ness): Gratefulness

Verb -> adjective -> noun (ment)

To help -> Helpness -> helpfulness
To decide -> decisive -> decision

Windows is weakfull and probably the heaviest operating system about memory ram use, but its users are happiness.

• [ ] Preferences using “to”
What things made you prefer one brand over the other? Write down your ideas:
And read aloud using vocaroo. Remember to keep this aligned to your topic.

Usar to “en vez” para comparar

Do toy prefer dogs TO cats as pets.

Se usa TO con un gerundio como si una actividad

Myself prefer Linux to windows in my Work office, while I prefer windows to Linux in my home, but as I prefer working in my home to Work in the office, I can say that Windows is my favorite.

• [ ] Until and till
Two prepositions are used for events. So, think about what needs to happen for the market to change in favor of the other brand.
To give you some ideas:

• Y brand will dominate the market until Q mark does this
• My mom used Y brand until they launched this feature.
• May – might – could
• Mas probabilidad – mas o menos posibilidad – menos posibilidades.
• What should we do today?

Microsoft used only commands interface operating systems until to launch Windows 3.0.

• [ ] Using the present simple to refer to the future
This is the audio’s transcription 🎙️
Think about future launching dates, and write it down here in present simple:
• Apple launches the new MacBook in June (example)
Microsoft launches Windows 12 in 2025 – October.
Linux Mint distribution based on Ubuntu 20.04 launches only in 64 bits on July 1st.

• [ ] Prohibition using the present and near future
Is “must” the same as “have to”? 🤔

R.- No. “Must” is more a order, a rule that we must obey

Is there something that must happen for your preferred brand to succeed? Write some connected sentences, and then record yourself.

Windows must send with mayor frequence test patchs to its users

Remember that you can check the pronunciation in this web site
Extra exercise - Brainstorm ideas of things we must, or must not do in these places:

• At a party:
We must to arrive early.
We mustn’t get drunk.

• At a shoes store:
We mustn’t go out without pay.
We must to be good client.

• At the spa:
We mustn’t arrive without a previous shower.
We must go with few cloths

• [ ] Speculations
Define the probabilities:
May
Might
Could
Think about the two brands you chose, and speculate about they may, might or could do in the future. You can go wild here and think about all the new technologies out there 👀
• Linux May reach more users in next future.
• Windows might launch more frequency patches.
• Linux Could to get leader Windows market.

• [ ] Offers and suggestions
Let’s turn this up a little: Suppose you get the chance to join a feedback session with someone from the brand team. Record yourself making some suggestions to their product. Write it here:
And then paste the vocaroo link:

https://voca.ro/16HB6j5ufSwo

• [ ] Phrasal verbs
What is a phrasal verb?

It’s the join a verb + a preposition or a adverb as: up, down, off, of, away, on, etc to give a meaning to and action.

Use this phrasal verbs list to check and choose up to five, then write sentences aligned to your topic:

We must Ask around the Linux users if all of them come forward with money apport. It’s a way to figure out solutions to get up!

Many users as windows as Linux figure out that the better way to ¬¬¬¬get over the bugs is test beta versions, but I agree about the Linux community Tester is bigger than the Windows Community.

• [ ] Passive transitive verbs
Define passive transitive verbs:
Transform the phrases you built to the passive transitive verbs. You can pick up to three;
• Linux operating system was made by Linux Torvalds
• Windows operating system was made by Microsoft Company
