@PatrickMannion: your comment "...which integrates Twitter, Facebook and other media, didn’t quite work..." seems to be missing something -wasn't there are blue screen with white letters??!! That pun aside, it is encouraging to see people trying to do something original at Microsoft! But the mobile computing train has long left the station and the OS game is dominated by iOS and Android, though there may be some room for others. @AudioGod: your question is a generational one! Now a days, people 'Google' for anything instead of thinking on their own, they want things handed to them. MP Divakar

How did we put men on the moon without Sesame street and Kinect? Are we so ADD that we can't learn to count to 4? Give me a dial phone, please. It doesn't crash, recycle itself or need recharging.

I'm not sure if there is a transcript floating around out there, but you can watch the entire thing on Microsoft's web site. http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/events/ces/

I would not exclude the possibility of Microsoft returning as CES keynoter in the near future at a refurbished International CES. Technology is moving too fast and the resultant breakthroughs that Microsoft has made, say with Kinect for games, is already on the drawing board for health applications. Reports say that M'sft has some 200 partners including health providers interested in using Kinect gesture technology. Never underestimate Microsoft's ability to redefine itself and come out swinging as a consumer electronics powerhouse. Of course, I could be wrong.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
