Real innovation or innovation according to Microsoft and IBM?

Brand Killer Robots reveal::
Just what is all this about innovation? What innovation? What do you mean by innovation? Do you mean yesterdays innovation, innovation according to Microsoft or IBM - or do you mean innovation beyond the current Windows and computing paradigms? Innovation today is at best "innovation according to the 1980's /1990's paradigm" i.e the same cognitive computing paradigms - but smaller, prettier and faster. There is no real leap of science involved in the technology arena. Today's high-tech products are simply a variation on the same theme we've known about for 20 - 30 years. There is a lot more hype and noise and a lot less innovation involved. So where is the real innovation? Like in the medical profession or with bio-sciences?

So we ask - when you talk about innovation - really focus on the algorithms that are applied and the meaning of the word "innovation" and ask....

Is this innovation according to Microsoft and IBM - or am i looking at "real innovation"?
