Microsoft is well known for Windows, Office, .NET, Xbox, Zune and a long list of other products and technologies.
Less discussed however, is a group at Microsoft that isn't necessarily focused on ship dates, packaging, or competing products. Instead they think about how computers and technology can make life easier, with an eye towards developing new technologies that can improve all our lives and often in cooperation with product team, but also working with people in academia, governments and industry. The name of this group is Microsoft Research.
