If that isn't enough to wet your appetite for more information on new technologies from Microsoft and, like me, you won't be at CES (Consumer Electronics Show), you can have a virtual seat right from your computer. Be ringside when Bill Gates provides the keynote address at 2007 CES. Tune in to Microsoft at CES where "Microsoft at CES" will follow the action with in-the-moment video from the show floor. The show starts Sunday, January 7, 2007. Catch Mr. Gates at 6:30 PM Pacific time (GMT -8.5).
If you miss the broadcast of the CES keynote address, it will be available "on demand" tomorrow (08Jan07) from Microsoft at CES and Microsoft.com/ces. Also, transcripts and view-on-demand portions of the keynote address will be posted to Microsoft.com/PressPass beginning Monday morning.
Added 08Jan06: Transcript of Keynote address: "Bill Gates: 2007 International Electronics Show"
