Re: On the right path
@mejiac - yes you have to go through a lot of hassle just to get into a conference call. All these passcodes are not easy to remember so you have to have the invitation with you.

Re: Its great to see MSFT involved in So many Interesting Areas today.
@Ashu001,

You have a good point,

I think what might happen is that once a robust product is made available, providers will adopt it so that it's easilly accessible. This would be mainly driven by demand for it (which would come from those that consume it)

THe Start Menu
If Microsoft is providing a lot more searching capabilities from the start menu, it's definitly hitting the nail on the head.

Any windows user will also go to the start menu as the first step for most task, so not only does it make sense, it also allows for a more focused effort.

The same way we use CTRL+F for searching in a web site, this is the same type of experience that Microsoft can easilly deliver

On the right path
Great Article Kelly,

I think this is more evidence that Microsoft has learned from past mistakes and it's definitly on the right track.

By both embracing more and more the usage of apps, and providing a more integrated ecosystem is definitly driving to the goal....and I trully hope it gets there.

From an enterprise side, I know many who would welcome being able to hope on a conference call with one swipe (versus having to dial a bridge number, then a pin, then a passcode, and god forbide if a moderator code is also required)

Wearable Technology alongwith IoT is most definitely the Future of Most Devices today.

Its a different matter if this Technology will evolve at the pace that is slow enough to satisfy human and Privacy concerns going ahead.

Absolutely right!

Preventative Healthcare alongwith Gene Theraphy will absolutely be the Key to the Future of Healthcare as Human Population continues to get Older and We Live Longer Lives.

That much is definitely a Given,

There is no way any Government Globally can sustain over 30% of its Population which is constantly seriously sick.

Preventive health-care technology is what we would like to see in the medical industry. Its great if Microsoft could spend some money and effort on this.
