  Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates urged cable companies Monday to
  develop high-speed cable links to the Internet, saying it would set new
  standards for the growing industry. "In the near term, there's no one else
  that can provide these things," Gates said in a speech at the National
  Cable Television Association meeting in Atlanta. Microsoft hopes to supply
  cable operators with software to run advanced new cable TV set-top boxes
  that consumers will use to access ordinary television, the Internet and
  other services. The company announced a deal in January to supply its
  set-top software, Windows CE, in 5 million boxes.
