No Innovation at Microsoft

If Microsoft were so innovative, if all the billions of dollars in R&D they spend over at Microsoft Labs were so useful, how come they can’t even come up with this simple extension to their own mapping products? It does seem obvious in retrospect, but I’m sure it wasn’t what most people were thinking of a few weeks/months/years ago.

Apple and Google will continue to innovate, while all Microsoft can do is copy, copy, copy. I’ll admit that MS Songsmith is pretty cool, but it doesn’t have the same kind of impact as Google Maps.
