In 1997, Microsoft was a leader in the computer technology industry. The greatest threat to the company's future, surprisingly, was inside the company itself. "Wall Street Journal" reporter David Bank talks with Todd about the fight within Microsoft, and how Bill Gates stood in the middle of the controversy. His book is "Breaking Windows: How Bill Gates Fumbled the Future of Microsoft".

Tech advisor Heather Newman talks with Todd about computer software college kids need when heading back to class. She also talks about the new software www.imici.com, which allows multiple users to instant message at once, and dynamickarma.com's "Power Drawers" system, for organizing and accessing computer files. Newman is a technology columnist at the "Detroit Free Press".
