Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer opened up the largest consumer technology trade show in the world with a tone that was both reflective and energized, but without living up to much -- if any -- of the anticipation that preceded the speech.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed this week that its enterprise security
software Forefront was to be introduced soon.
While I don't particularly like Microsoft, and found the Vista speech recognition gone wrong clip a good joke, several Microsoft blogger pointed out the that it was a case of selective media editing. I was interested in getting the whole story so I downloaded the 70mb MSFT Financial Analyst Meeting 2006: Steve Ballmer clip from here http://www.microsoft.com/msft/speech/FY06/BallmerFAM2006.mspx
Knowing there were probably others who wanted to see it but didn't wish to retrive the whole file, I cut it to show the entire speech recognition part. If you haven't yet seen the CNBC selectively edited clip, I suggest you watch it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Y_Jp6PxsSQ Having seen this, while I still find the original clip funny, it's clear the bigger joke is on CNBC for their selective, misleading editing and (rather silly as well) commentary...
The issues and reasons for the failure are discussed here
I'm not 100% sure on the copyright status, I hope that since Microsoft makes the entire clip available on their website and the CNBC selectively edited/misleading clip is available, they won't mind. If they do, tell me and I will remove it ASAP.
N.B. As I hope I made clear above. I am NOT associated in any way shape or form with Microsoft, so please don't accuse me of being so
Gizmo Ep05 - Get the first look at photos from the unveiling of Microsoft and HP's Windows 7 Slate. It is a tablet that is powered by the multi-touch features of Windows 7 and features a few interesting modes like: movie mode, reading mode, and pc mode. The interesting part is seemingly a tie-up with Amazon (be it with Microsoft, HP or both were not sure.) Ballmer demoed the Amazon PC reader on the HP Slate, and the reader will ship as standard with the Slate.
Release date: later this year, and the price: about the same as a mobile phone. Our guess, pre-Christmas and around the $600-$700 mark.
Szekely National Anthem
"From the chaos of the Migration Period -- that swept away everything one and half thousand years ago -- a nation emerged in the renewing Europe, small in numbers but great in achievements... with outstanding fighting traditions and also democratic institutions. This is the Szekely nation." (Balazs Orbán, 1868)
"They demonstrated with distinction
fidelity as well as,
bravery in battle
and for the future
they promised the same."
Princeps Transylvaniae (1655)
Székelys - defenders of Europe for over 1000 years! Watch what the world of warcraft really meant in the outer defense lines of the Holy Roman Empire. The homeland stands firmly defended while no crusade has ever been launched from here. Szekely nation is nearly a million Hungarians living in Transylvania, the mountain region of the Eastern Carpathian.
Visit the national anthem of other European minorities as well (e.g., Bayernhymne, Welsh National Anthem).

Microsoft Surface - Keynote 2012 (Part 4/4)
After a quite incredible barrage of rumor and speculation, Steve Ballmer has officially announced Microsoft Surface, which will be the Redmond company's first effort in the increasingly-relevant tablet market. Given the poor performance of most competitors to the iPad, the significance of its introduction to the market could be huge, and here, we take a run-down of its vital statistics.
From a design perspective, it's a lot different to anything we've seen on the market, and as you can see from the photos, could be a game-changer. Packed into an ultra-light magnesium body, it's finished off elegantly with PVD, while the screen is hardened by the Gorilla Glass previously used by Cupertino rival Apple in various digital products. The edges of the device are beveled at 22 degree angles to, as Microsoft's Steven Sinofsky points out, make the device "feel natural in your hands," but the finish isn't the only unique design quirk -- not by a long shot.
Beside being the only tablet with the liquid metal finish, it also features a nifty in-built kickstand, enabling the device to stand freely for movie-watching, without the need utilize / purchase any separate or third-party accessories. Intuitive indeed.
The killer feature, however, is the cover, which clips on magnetically to double as a touch-enabled keyboard -- a feature Microsoft feels essential to those looking to purchase a tablet. Named Type Cover, it looks simply stunning, and at three millimeters thin, it doesn't bulk out the device too much when being utilized as a cover.
The most interesting thing about the tablet is that it will come with a stylus, yes, a stylus. It is designed in such a way that writing feels completely natural and feels as if the pen is in direct contact with the display, something which has never been achieved before on a device of this calibre. Remarkable indeed. And oh, did we mention that the stylus magnetically latches on to the Surface's body?
It features a 10.6 inch display, which, as well as being larger than the iPad by almost an inch, offers more screen real-estate than most other tablet offerings to date. With semantic zoom, it will offer a seamless Windows experience, and will, of course, present users with the ability to download games, movies, and general content through the Windows Store from the get-go. With 32 and 64GB versions available, there'll be plenty of space for all that content to reside.
Not only does the Microsoft Surface have the credentials to knock the iPad off its perch, but it may just threaten the fledgling ultrabook market, because as well as a Surface for Windows RT, there will also be one -- packing Intel chips -- with full Windows, and desktop apps running capabilities.
Many have been disappointed with Microsoft's lack of a decent hardware announcement, but the stunning Surface looks as though it could turn the tablet market completely on its head.
Microsoft's Steve Ballmer and Steven Sinofsky announce a line of tablet devices at press event in Los Angeles Monday. The Surface tablets, running Windows 8, feature 10.6-inch touch screens wrapped in a magnesium case. They also feature a magnetically-attached, 3mm-thick Touch Cover that folds down and functions as a full touch-screen keyboard.
