I'm perfectly happy to let Google (and a few select others) collect, collate and monetise my data in return for the outstanding services it delivers me at no financial cost.

Irrespective of the actual reason, it is safe to say that Microsoft has relinquished its technology domination to other companies like Apple - until now. With the release of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system, they look, at least to me, set to take back what they once had.
