[_] FWD> Microsoft Will Abandon Controversial Smart Tags

The whole thing makes me wonder- has Micro$oft never heard of focus groups?

Would sure save them (and especially their programmers) a heck of a lot of 
time if they'd look for a little "external feedback" during the planning 
staages rather than waiting until after they announce and having to backpedal.

How the heck does a company that makes such fundamental mistakes manage to 
become a monopoly, anyway??
