Microsoft at CES
The Consumer electronics show starts in Las Vegas on Monday. The internal rumor mill has been going crazy and we've been told not to blog about .... well I can't tell you what obviously.
Bill Gates is delivering a keynote speech on Sunday night - 6:30PM Redmond time, by which point most people working in Europe will have gone to bed. On Monday you'll be able to view it via http://microsoftatces.com/
They've already got some videos on the site. One is for the "Wireless Desktop 8000" . Lousy name, very cool product. When we look at Apple we see fantastic industrial design, which I don't see in my original X box, or the older Microsoft mice (look out for the very first MS mouse in the video - about 4:40-4:50). These days I have a Philippe Starke mouse at home, and design of the Xbox 360 is pretty good. This is the first time I've seen a keyboard that would inspire envy. I saw these before Christmas: they're not cheap but I have a plan to get my hands on one. As and when I do I'll blog about it.
