    Well, apparently Microsoft has no problem doing what Apple used to and now refuses to do......provide a live stream to a keynote:

    http://microsoftatces.com/

    Starts in about 45 minutes, in the meantime, I'm listening to the best part of it.....the classical music while waiting for it to start :p

    I wish Apple would finally do a live stream again, I miss those days.

    Anyways, time to go listen to Bill Gates talk about how great Vista is...helps build the excitement for Tuesday :D

    Microsoft can provide a live stream because only about 5 people watch it. :p

    I take that back; they just replaced the classical with some absolute crap.....forebodding their product announcements I suppose.

    haha.....I personally want to see rev 2 of xbox 360.... looks like they are integrating hd-dvd, hdmi, maybe wireless, and a new 120gb hd along with the 65nm cpu. Rumors are they are talking about it tonight.

    other than that........ *yawn* hahaha

    I'm watching the live stream now. Right now they are demoing Vista and its "revert back to original" feature and dogging Apple. :rolleyes:

    Pfff....Macs been doing that ever since Quartz Extreme in Panther.:p ;)

    WTF?! Broadcast temp. suspended to protect intellectual property of the HP Home Media Server?

    yeah, that was pretty pathetic. The home media server's ability to combine hd's on the fly as a single point of storage is nice..... but ZFS has that doesn't it? :)

    I was reading the live engadget coverage as I was hoping for a 360 rev 2, and they posted a screenshot of the "live coverage disabled." Best part? It was playing in quicktime on a mac. :D

    If I read correctly (did not watch the keynote) that feature is only available in Vista Ultimate (they called it an Ultimate Extra, right?)

    So be prepared to lay down some serious $$$.

    Or, just get Mac OS X that has been able to do this for years.

    Or, just get a copy of Linux.

    I've been watching a few video clips of his keynote and is it just me or does everything he say fall flat?

    Obviously Bill doesn't have the charisma of Steve, and his audience are always going to be a much more sober bunch but I can't help but wince watching him try to engage the crowd. :eek:

    The other thing that strikes me is just how badly presented the keynote is, the introductory video showing the zune and vista in action is laughably bad. The pictures on the screen when he is giving his introduction are so unprofessional and naff. Even the stage area is cluttered and bad.


    MS really could learn a lot from Apple.

    I like Bill, his software isn't my first choice and his business attitude is often anti innovation, but his work in Africa is incredible.

    Yeah, it didn't seem to go over real well.

    All the spin they put on their music technologies being market leaders was laughable. You just can't spin that in a positive way......

    I'm not getting any sound from the stream. Is this happening to anyone else?
