Whatever. But it's O.K. with these Microsoft weenies when a Power Point presentation is used in a briefing about military strategy or plans or whatever?

Some people just feel a need to be on a crusade. For something.

Microsoft has 131,000 employees worldwide. MS needs these 90 why???

As is the case with many of these tech companies the noisiest inmates are running them.

So, they resign from Microsoft and start a new 'quiet' company with the help of the military, they all get super rich developing the need for the army on the quiet, and it is a win-win for all, while others are still petitioning. Its the nature of the beast. And we have more secrets to hide from Mr.Public and we all get to live under threat. Combined with Ai weapons, who knows, we could be an extinct spiecies by 2020.

ok, the entire purpose of the implementation of technology into the battlefield is to further remove our servicemen and women from harms way and to also impart the greatest impact against the enemy. this is what the headsets were meant to do!

Go to any war, you are in harms way. No doubt about that. If you don't want to be harmed, stay out of wars. What could be simpler. No rocket science needed.
