@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.
