Ok. I will answer your question.
By looking at the pictures taken from very high up, we can learn things that might be useful to shop owners and for the people who drive lorries and ships between the shops. We might be able to look at the pictures and count the number of cars in front of a shop. That might tell us how many people are in the shop. Then we might be able to tell how much money the shop is making. We might also be able to look at the pictures and see the lorries and ships on the picture. This might let us work out when the ships and the lorries are going to arrive, and this will help the shop owners know when the things they want to sell are going to arrive.
We can also look at the pictures taken from high up to see how much water is in the lake and how big a farmer's land is. This will help the farmer know if there is going to be enough water in the lake to water his plants.
I think this idea is very clever. I don't think I would have been able to work it out. It is also really useful to shop owners and farmers.
In answer to your question, if all of the clever things that Microsoft made aren't very clever and you cannot do useful things with them, why doesn't Google stop giving Microsoft lots of money and make clever things themselves?
Either Microsoft is doing all of the clever inventing for Google, and so Google should pay Microsoft for all of the scientists making clever ideas, or Google should spend all of that money making their own clever ideas instead of paying Microsoft for the clever ideas that Microsoft made.
