Mike Hall took his video camera over to Microsoft Research's faculty summit recently and met up with Stewart Tansley.
Stewart gets us a demo of a new "touchlight" prototype. It's a new kind of touch screen and could lead to new kinds of user interaction experiences.
During an interview for a technical position at Microsoft your interviewer might turn to you and ask you to write some code, or work out a problem on the whiteboard.

"Make a list" Dean Hachamovitch says. He's the guy who runs the Internet Explorer team.
But, it's a little more involved than that. Listen to Dean talk about some of the things his team has to worry about as it designs and develops the next version of Internet Explorer.
Way back when PCs used to be a nightmarish mess of IRQs and IO Ports (remember that?), a few nutty guys in the industry went off and came up with the idea of making a plug-and-play bus. That turned into what is now known as USB. Kosar Jaff, who is now

We're talking, by the way, of a pre-Windows XP Service Pack 2 world (when it comes to getting infected by turning on a new…
