Microsoft Whether you like Microsoft or not, the Redmond giant does have one thing going for it: the company's research division. Working together with several universities and other institutions, Microsoft Research works on the soft and hardware of the future, ranging from research operating systems to insanely cool things like what Microsoft's chief research and strategy officer Craig Mundie showed off during the Microsoft College Tour '09 (more videos).

The minory report-like technology was acquired from a startup founder who tried really hard to get it working.

Just to note that such technology requires the hard pushing of a visionary rather than a big slow enterprise company division.

I fell for that the first time I saw it, too.
