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.

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.
