  • Looking forward to seeing how things are gonna shape up soon, windows 10 is already great but new stuff is always welcome
  • I wonder if we will see an Intel atom surface 4.
  • My Xbox One is tuned in....
  • Which app are you using? Sent from Microsoft Band
  • The bèta screen project app. My Surface streams It to My Xbox.
  • If he's "tuned in" that would suggest using the radio or television.
  • I'm intrigued by what's coming immediately after the Keynote - it just says "To be announced" Sent from Microsoft Band
  • Really want to see what microsoft will bring new. I mean i love windows 10 but it still need some improvments. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Thank you for this easy access through the Windows Central app... - Posted via W10 app
  • My WC W10 app just says "Navigation to the webpage was canceled. What you can try:" but it shows nothing... I can hear some music though o.O Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Not missing much. Mastermind is a total bore and audience seems to be sleeping.
  • Lol yeah. The video is streaming somehow but is not visible in the app. Only the sound is playing.
  • Off subject, how to save a picture from bing (windows 10 mobile) and thank you
  • Hard press on it. Option will appear to "share" or "save."
  • Not working
  • Web sites can disable the context menu. Now try using the forums instead of going off topic.
  • Worst 'music' ever.
  • Sad that there wont be Panos Bcoz its not a hardware event.
  • People in the audience look bored. And is that forced clapping all the time? Sounds like it on the stream.
  • Hey, we saw a big link here on WindowsCentral advertising the Apple talk a couple weeks ago. We were also specifically told that iMore and WindowsCentral does cross-promotions like that all the time. And yet, when I go over to iMore, nothing. No link. No discussion about it. Nothing. Oh well, just the usual we need to hear everything Apple on a Microsoft site, but then the same doesn't happen in reverse.
  • Nice conference, Microsoft /s oh-- is that an Android phone ? ROFLMAO  
  • Do you have any idea what \\Build is? - Posted via W10 app
  • They used an iPhone as well during the cognitive demo.
  • Nothing related to phone?? y??
  • Because this is about Software, not hardware. - Posted via W10 app
  • Hmm they spent a lot of time talkin about Surface, Desktop PCs, Xbox One, and HoloLens though.
  • Cortana was not an afterthought response to Google Now or Siri.  Its vision is so much more.  Hard to grasp that until you see what they are building and offering now.  Remarkable foresight and clever use of the "PDA".
  • What a boring show....... 
  • Bots, Skype, and Cortana integration would be great additions to HotSchedules software. Too bad they dislike Microsoft anything. :(
  • iPhone used again at a Microsoft event!
  • Hahahaha, talk about all hardware platforms except phones. Oh, but they sure are proud of their Android and iOS offers. You can develop Android and iOS apps on Visual Studio now! Windows Phones.... LMAO  
  • I was sort of disappointed with the presenters lack of enthusiam and really? NO WIN 10 PHONES news :(
  • The keynote is reserverd for important announcements that Microsoft really cares about. Why on Earth would anyone expect them to talk about their failed smartphone platform?  
  • Maybe because some of us would like to know about it.
  • Thier failed smartphone platform is part of thier wholistic Win 10 everywhere approach... so yeah any news about Win 10 SHOULD include something on phones
  • Really? From what I saw this morning Android and iOS play a bigger role than their failed smartphone platform. I guess < 2% of the market (and falling) isn't worth wasting time with.  
  • Not that I care what you think but I do find your facination with me quite intriguing since so many people have posted the same thing about no Win 10 News and you down vote and reply to mine! Thanks for being a fan :) Also like Clamdigger63 posted some of us would like to know abou it
  • I thought we were going to be "blown away" by something. Did I blink and miss it? Well we really know how much MS think about Windows Mobile.
  • WOW I was facinated about those new technologies shown there today. Really cool stuff. Would like to see more on Windows 10 Mobile
  • Great Intentive ........
