I fail to see the FUD in this. It's just a nifty idea that one of
microsoft's research arms are exploring, thats all. They haven't claimed
that this will ever even be on the market. Most large tech companies
support research that has no immediate ROI...

You take a bunch of bright, creative people and give them a budget,
eventually something useful will come of it

LifeStream was a neat idea, I'm glad someone's trying to implement some of
it's proposals
