Microsoft plumbs the depth of Dumb

I always expect when dealing with Microsoft some level of Clunky and/or Awkward, but today they showed me Industrial Grade Stupid.

An applicant’s email had a link to her résumé, which mysteriously led me to a login page for something called Office 365:
Stupid Microsoft form

The Microsoft page has login/password boxes for users, and a “New Customer?” message extolling the virtues of the service – and absolutely no link at all to sign up, or get more info, or take any action at all. From the people who brought you the Zune.
