Wonder if you could create a 'StaffPad'-like app, but instead of being for musicians, it would be for developers. Could you develop an entire application just using Pen input? Would that be easier/quicker than just using mouse/keyboard?

In 100 years - people will be like 'I remember when I had to 3-D print all of my own stuff' - and some genius person will come up with an idea of a 'store' where you can just go buy them pre-built.
I just hope that woman aren't writing the software for these self-driving cars :) (that's a joke btw)
One problem I do see is how insurance will work going forward - if there is an issue and an automated car wrecks into another car because of some glitch - who pays up? insurance, owner of the car, manufacturer of the car? Does it matter if its two automated cars wrecking - or if its an automated car and a normal car? Will insurance premiums on automated cars be higher/lower than normal cars?
They need an autonomous division. With AIs so good these days - I think it would be interesting to see if an AI robot could win against another AI robot - or even a human driven robot.
To make it interesting - you could have it where there are 3 or 4 robots in the match...then the robot would have to decide who to attack (or maybe just sit back and let the others fight each other)

Question for you guys - have either of you tried the HoloLens?
Mark took my thought - would be interesting to see how Bing does with the stock markets (individual tickers would be cool).
Gas price predictions would be nice.
Predict when the Ch 9. xbox one app will be released would be cool :)
Sales Price predictions would be cool - 'Im interested in buying XYZ - should I buy or wait' (based on sales price history)
@dtower - led light would be a key addition.
How about some type of flint/spark mechanism in case you get stranded somewhere and need to start a fire?
Not sure why they didn't call it HaloLens (given Cortana, Spartan names) - I'm going to have a hard time calling it HoloLens.
I think in 5-7 years when it becomes smaller - it will be as common as a 2nd monitor in the workplace today. I can imagine that instead of having multiple monitors - you can just 'throw' documents (doc, xls, ppt, .cs, .cpp) up on a cube wall and now you have unlimited deskspace to work in, you just turn your head/chair. If you want to share and discuss a document - you can just share it virtually. Would love to have it hooked up to a Surface tablet so that as I write on the tablet, the ink shows up in others users virtual whiteboard.
Unfortunately, DWHs (Driving While Holograming) will cause all sorts of legal issues.
Side note - which would be safer - texting while driving, talking on a phone while driving, talking via Bluetooth while driving, or wearing HaloLens (sorry, I still think you should change the name) while driving?
Excited - Yes, until I realize its just a matter of time until they come out with an even better connector that we'll be just as excited for when it gets released.
Will they have Type-C to USB 2/3 converters - it would be nice if they can so that future laptops will only have Type C ports, and then you can buy converters for existing hardware.
I can see the specs now '2 USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type C port'.
I only watch live TV for sports and news - everything else I watch is recorded on the DVR so I can skip all the commercials. Sling sounds interesting - but the non-negotiable would be the ability to watch on-demand shows without commercial (or at least with the ability to fast forward through the commercials). That's the current downfall of the current cable channel apps out there - you cant skip the commercials - which is why DVR is still the best thing out there.
As an aside - does it annoy anyone else out there that when you go to a news website and they have a video of a story - when you watch the video it first shows a 30 second ad, followed by the actual news story that's 20 seconds long? Oh, and you want to watch the next story? Heres another ad (that's usually the same as the 1st one)!
The Force Field around the earth shaped like a donut...mind immediately went to 'Space Balls: The Movie" - seems like it would/should be in that movie. "Jam their radar!"
Ping should do another live show (from another bar) and use Bing Pulse to see what viewers think...
Thanks for the tip on the free Angry Birds! Now I have something else to keep me busy at the airport/plane while I travel over the holidays (on my Lumia 521)
