    Just think. Last week Gates was encouraging amnesty for illegals so he could bring in more tech workers.
    Things sure change in a hurry, eh?

    Microsoft should stick to what it knows and does best, its own operating system and MS-DOS which is the foundation of every technology in use in the electronic industry. There is such a thing as too big and Bill Gates knew it by keeping his success in the realm of his abilities.

    Some things just ahve to be left to other people who know how to adapt their products to work with an OS better than Microsoft can do.

    Its too bad that it won't add jobs in the US but its part of doing business. I think its safe to assume technology has met its limits as commercial entertainment industry and no future plans are in place to increase or improve the economy with tangible products.

    Cell phones have peaked and on the decline with junk apps so numerous no one knows how to use any of them. Entertainment time is over, now their is a need for industrial changes that can incorporate humans into the factorizes and job market to replace broken and worn out robotic workers that can't be fixed. The companies who made them are all out of business now.
