    Two little things….

    (a) Google bought Measure Map from Adaptive Path, not acquired a company…. A little different to your standard Web2.0 Katamri Damacy play.

    (b) Well, Microsoft proved themselves sufficently incompetent to be called the Borg, who are ruthlessly efficent; Microsoft are just ruthless.
