Gates to focus on online services til he fades away [marketwatch.com]

It sounds like this says we're determined to focus on using own own proprietary technologies and do our own thing despite what the marketplace wants. Since they are MSFT and they have billions maybe they can make it work.

At the SAS conference, the company is touting a three-dimensional graphic technology that lets users find a building on a map photo, for example, and then virtually "enter" the building to have a closer look. "You want to be able to point to the building and go in," according to Gates

Sounds like an interesting novelty but..........maybe it will lead to something

I've seen demos of that - there's a video about it somewhere and it's a potentially awesome (even frightening) technology.

Imagine every image on the web being knitted into its very location in the world, so that you end up with one 3D virtual picture of the planet, that you can view from any angle.
