The Truth That Dare Not Speak: The CES Keynote Sucked

Duncan Riley: “The Microsoft keynote at CES sucked.”

Shocking. I’ve never understood why Bill Gates and Microsoft have been awarded a perennial slot as the CES keynote. Microsoft is a tremendously successful company, but they’ve never been particularly successful in the field of consumer electronics. Their two big successes are the Windows OS and software that runs on Windows. Xbox has been semi-successful, but they’ve lost money to build the second- or maybe even now third-place console platform.
