halcyondays has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Apparently google is using their 'free' voice product to allow their servers to analysis voice traffic and learn how to 'speak' and 'listen' accurately to voice commands - wonder if M$ has the same desire....

Andy when they bought hotmail they migrated it from a Linux backend to an Exchange backend, wonder how long till they move Skype onto Lync servers....

If movies have taught us anything - it's that mega-corps are NOT a good idea....

Many times in technology deals the main goal is not immediate profit, but to further develop the technology and customer base. Then you can profit in the future.
