Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

This is my last week covering Microsoft. Send your Qs

As “Star Trek: The Next Generation” said at the end of its run, all good things …

This is my last week covering Microsoft as a technology reporter for The Seattle Times. I will be moving over to the digital side of the newsroom where I will become a producer for mobile platforms and news analytics. I am excited for the new adventure but I will miss covering this great beat.

Janet Tu, the excellent reporter who now covers religion for The Seattle Times, will start covering Microsoft on Aug. 1 and I can’t wait to read her coverage of Windows 8, cloud computing, the first Nokia Windows Phone and the Microsoft-Skype merger.

It’s been a privilege to write about the most important software company in the world for you. Stay tuned this week to Microsoft Pri0 as I take a look back over the past two years, through photos, videos, Twitter, the blog and the newspaper. It seems like a good time to look back anyway, since Microsoft just reported the results of its 2011 fiscal year.

Are there any questions you want to ask me about Microsoft or what it’s been like to cover the company? Send them to me in the form at the end of this post and I will answer them here on the blog all week.

I will think of our gathering this week on the blog like the final scene in “Star Trek: TNG.” It’s the crew’s poker game that Capt. Jean-Luc Picard finally comes to.

We should have done this a long time ago.

Here is the video below.
