Why do you only ever seem to state the obvious after it was stated by 

It is though true, Microsoft are visionary as you declare. They must 
therefore be in receipt of credit for such innovative foresight where others
are only able to ponder after the event.

I just wonder how many companies say under their breath, "we should have 
done that"?

It's like some in cola that like to think of themselves as traders of 
stocks, but very often they are only seen to reference a pro in the field or
quote something after the event they then try to palm it off as their own. 
Very sad really.
