  • Good, Better, Best ...

    I think they will kill it.  No matter if they do or not, they need to make developing for Windows the quickest & most cost effective way to a cross platform app.

  • HP Xbox 360?

    @cbae: probaby not, they did nothing about comcast's x1 which is certainly more analogous to a gaming / entertainment console that Xbox One represents.

  • Automotive Market

    @Bass:  I was not suggesting Microsoft develop the application = autonmous driving.  Every auto manufacturer will want to write & own that application.  But getting serious about AI / Speech / Vision services that these and other industry applications will need... you bet.  Microsoft needs to find a way that works cross platform.

  • Automotive Market

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-02-22/ford-said-to-swap-blackberry-s-qnx-for-microsoft-in-sync-system.html?cmpid=msnmoney

    Looks like Microsoft would be better off acquiring QNX at this point.  And if not, at least partner with Ford in providing a Cortana like service on top of QNX.  Not sure where else Microsoft could make a big impact when it comes to vehicle technology.   Autonomous Driving requires better AI so maybe they should develop a leading and cost effective AI platform.

  • Lumia ICON announced

    We're on T-mobile & Sprint but might consider trying out Verizon.  Should Lumia Icon work on Verizon's prepaid plan if we wanted to test it out on Verizon's LTE network?  Does Verizon block any Windows Phone features like Data Sense?

  • Nadella?

    Enterprise stuff, he's great but he will have to prove himself in his ability to navigate, provide vision and deliver in Consumer markets.  I thought Tony B. might have been a better fit or at least experienced in both arenas but I do like Satya and he's young enough to see his vision through .. something I was worried about with some of the older candidates.  I fully expect whoever is chosen will be nursing the Consumer side of things in the near term.

  • Google sells Motorola

    Now we know what was behind Samsung's exit from notebook PCs .. Google and Samsung are going to get cozy.  I'd like to see Lenovo pursue Windows Phone in a big way.

  • Windows 9

    As others have stated, who knows ... carriers have historically blocked such upgrades and I doubt that will change much.  Speaking of upgrades, I'd like to see Windows offered as a subscription similiar to Office 365.  And maybe pay a commission to oems so there is less resistence to such a move.

  • Congrats Craig Mundie

    There is no comparison to what Craig Mundie described, this kickstarter is for glasses.

  • 2019 is one step closer...

    Would be cool if Microsoft used this at Build.  Microsoft needs to acquire this company to see if the technology could be used beyond presentations & board rooms and possibly replace LCD panels.  If they were able to do that there would be a very exciting future for Windows.  Initially I can imagine it being utilized first with Xbox, having its own display technology ... especially with the way tv manufacturers are forcing smarttv down our throats running android.  Xbox could offer one device that outputs to anywhere from 22" to 120" and do extra wide aspect ratios for gaming, etc.  No need for illumiroom.  If this even has a remote possibility to be scaled down to laptops, tablets and phones then Microsoft would be crazy not to investigate further.  Okay maybe I'm being wildly enthusiastic here.
