Gates's "Sea Change" Memo Doesn't "SEE Change
Sorry Bill, but I don't think you really "SEE change".
Bill Gates unveiled his sea change memo to his top-level executives.
Gates urged company leaders to "act quickly and decisively" to move further into the field of offering such services, in order to best formidable competitors.
"The next sea change is upon us," Gates wrote to executives.

Not once in this memo did he outline Microsoft's plans for the mobile market. In a memo outlining transformation, he fails to see the real transformation of information and services becoming mobile.
There are more cellphones than PCs. The market for services/information on these will be enormous.
Yahoo and Google are racing to introduce services for this new medium. Where is Microsoft?
