Innovation at Microsoft

For those of you that regularly read my blog you might be shocked to hear me complementing Microsoft, but their announcements today are actually quite exciting and innovative.

  • The all new Surface Book: A very sleek and powerful laptop that converts into a Surface tablet. The devil is in the details with this one, but it sure looks promising and in a very rare move this is a Microsoft computer (not an HP or Lenovo running Windows 10).
  • The Microsoft Surface Pro 4: A significant upgrade to the Surface line of tablets. This one Microsoft is touting as a replacement for your PC. Maybe it can be...
  • Continuum: This is a new software feature built into the new Lumia 950 Windows 10 smartphone and essentially turns it into a desktop computer. The interface changes when connected to an external screen turning your smartphone into your home computer. This is the most exciting of the announcements in my mind because I really think this is where mobile computing is going. Smart phones are getting powerful enough that soon they will be all the computing power the average person needs.

I may be a huge fan of Apple products, but I don't want to live in a world where Apple is the only company innovating. Glad to see Microsoft stepping up their game...

Quartz had a good in-depth report on all the Microsoft announcements. Worth the read if you are interested.
