Microsoft Chairman Bill Gatesthis 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."
