Hey there. Currently i am at NYLF/Tech which is the National Youth leadership forum on technology, and microsoft's general manager of california stopped by. Laura Wallace. She spoke a bit, but then Johnathan N. stepped up to the stage and showed us a product early. We got to see this product in action before the general public. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/portablemediacenter/default.mspx Is what i am talking about. It is the portable media center. It is really cool, what it lets you do is lets you listen to music, and store movies, and pictures on the thing. 80 hours of full quality TV shows and whatnot 100,000 MP3's Battery life of 18 hours and or a ton of a JPEG's Anyways, he showed off the fact that it had album art, and what it could do. Now, when it came to the video part, i guess he was supposed to just show us a sample video, but everyone saw that he had the halo 2 trailer on it, and everyone just started screaming out Halo 2, and the guy being cool (more about that later) showed us the halo 2 trailer. Johnathan was awesome. He was the lead project manager for developing this product, which was a product that some guy what worked for microsoft dreamed up. Basically, the MS employee had worked on it in his free time. He got it in Bill Gates's hands and bill liked the idea, so at the next tech show the prototype was shown, and people loved it. So the team got put together, and money was granted (Close to 9 million USD) and he was made project manager. He told a little about himself and what he had tried to do as a kid, one of the things was open up a lemonade stand, but instead of the standard ingredients, he wanted to add some crack. This made the entire hall light up and start laughing and clapping. He continues and tells us how he got through school, and some more witty things, and that is when the presentation start. We then had Q&A and Laura and Johnathan both got questions, quite a few came from a very attacking stand point that Windows sucks. It was extremely bad, but the speakers stood their ground, and still kept saying Windows was the best . Anyways. That was that, i hope i have not bored you. Note, the entire device runs Windows CE with a new shell that is modeled after the Windows Media Center.
