Quote of the day: We're not the organizers

Bill Gates says while Google wants to organize the world's information, Microsoft wants to give people tools to do so.

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates sat down with CNET News.com this week to discuss, among other things, the extent to which he feels his company is in competition with Web properties like Google. He doesn't see the search king as being in the same game when it comes to offering development capabilities.

Google has "this slogan that they are going to organize the world's information. Our slogan is that we are going to give people tools to let them organize the world's information," Gates said. "It's a slightly different approach, based on the platformization of all of our capabilities and not thinking of ourselves as the organizer."
