When Microsoft said there wouldn’t be news coming out of this year’s CEO Summit, it wasn’t kidding.
In the past, the company has chosen the occasion to make various announcements. But this time, Chairman Bill Gates simply gave a keynote speech about the future of technology. He touched on some of his favorite subjects: broadband penetration, the rapid pace of innovation, how hardware is getting smaller but phones are getting bigger, etc. etc.
See this writeup from TG Daily for more specifics.
Gates, perhaps in a burst of generosity, even acknowledged Apple’s iPod as an example of a media device when speaking about the different forms of devices out there. And he didn’t flinch when he said it, either.
