Internet Services Crucial, Microsoft Memos Say - New York Times

He cites Microsoft's failure to adequately pursue a technology known as Ajax - which makes it possible for Internet-based applications to mimic the appearance and responsiveness of desktop PC programs - as a clear case of company sluggishness.
He also noted that the company was slow to move ahead on Internet searching, even after Mr. Gates gave a speech in 1991 predicting 'information at your fingertips.'"
