Smart phones are not Microsoft's business. It would be like Lockheed-Martin trying to manufacture desktop computers. They don't know anything about it and would probably not fit culturally. Microsoft has a hard time engaging new ventures effectively because of their culture. They need a new captain AND a new culture.

Yeah, PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They're not going to just walk in.

Comment Re:Pedestrian problems? (Score 1) 1173

That can work... there's quite a few roundabouts in the UK that have pedestrian crossings on each road leading off it. You space them about two or three car lengths from the roundabout so that there's a little bit of room for cars to queue when the lights are red, and you make the lights always stay green unless a pedestrian pushes the button (i.e. the lights aren't controlling the traffic otherwise). Usually such crossings take a bit longer to change to allow pedestrians past, too, to avoid too much congestion.

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and think what nobody else has thought.

Working...
