Announcing Microsoft Online Services yesterday, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates let fly on Google. "Their economic model is based on consumer search," Gates said.

The Google tools that have tried to do productivity type things, they really don't have the richness, the responsiveness.

I can barely remember the name but it was, you know, going to change the world.
