  • I'm all excited. But will try to keep the excitement under control just that I don't get disappointed. But I sincerely hope for a great revelation. I'm counting on you, Microsoft.
  • Excited, waiting for Win 10 preview for phone !!
  • 1am in malaysia

  • Don't leave us out! Waiting here in the Philippines! :) 1:00am @_@
  • Starting @ 1:00pm here in Trinidad and Tobago. Can't wait! :D
  • @work, but hoping to see visuals of live stream (without sound) :-P
  • I dont know what to expect actually.  Even reading this site and Paul Thurrotts almost daily.  I dont really know what to expect.IM EXCITED!
  • Last Ball 6 more run to win. Such a moment.
  • Hahaha! Nicely related!
  • Epic!
  • 1 am in the Philippines
  • will it be streamed on on the xbox live app?  
  • My Lumia, Brain, Body, PC, Internet all the things are ready :)
  • LETSAGO!!!!
  • this whole thing is been like a Michael Bay Movie Trailer....seems very exciting...hope the real movie will not be like Michaell Bay movie.... "Its Starting"
  • Not sure why I'm surprised but the stream plays fine on a Lumia :D
  • I will be waiting the broadcast in two hours on my SP3. Central Time where I live.
  • Wait wait wait
  • is it started?...the official page shows live briefing something ..but not able to view it
  • BUZZING!
  • Not sure if I should prepare some dinner or watch it... gonna switch to my lumia then!
  • its playing only on IE...not able to view on Chrome for me...  
  • That's odd, because the only thing it's playing in is Chrome for me. IE (desktop and modern) isn't allowing me to start the stream. 
  • Can someone explain why CNN etc does not have total coverage of this like they do with crapple announcements?
  • They're incredibly biased!
  • Right now i'm really glad i've got my own little spot in the office away from prying eyes ;)
  • Waiting
  • What features you all expecting for mobiles
  • basic features like more shortcut in notification center (not only four), better toggle of various shortcuts in notification, app lock. music controller in notification, and some what loose control of OS when it comes to access permission for various file ( this is the main reason why some of the apps don't have all features )
  • Sweet only 45 minutes to go !
  • 40 minutes remaining hands crossed India
  • Waiting.....45 minutes more...10:30pm in India
  • At what time in India boss?
  • Please stop using that loofer language ...
  • Loofer lol xD
  • See if you are using a smart phone. You should also be able to calculate the time according to your time zone. Or make a search.
  • 3 A.M. Guys don't go hard on him..Can't you all tell him the time..??
  • Is Microsoft going to speak on the Lumia camera app updates they just pushed out?  Maybe when Icon will get Denim?  :)
  • One hour to go
  • Am using L630 can I take preview for developer windows 10 to my phone?
  • You can not "Take".
  • Yes you can..But I would suggest not to if that's your daily driver..!!
  • WP10
  • *W10
  • Study for a test tomorrow or watch this? Hmmm. #windows10 it is then. HAHAHAHAHA.
  • Good choice.
  • I know right. xD
  • Multitasking ;) Do both!
  • go and study man and get a job in microsoft and you can one day be on the stage
  • If you are preparing properly, a few hours more or less shouldn't really have much of an impact on the grade (in a good way). If you're starting to prepare now for a test that is tomorrow, it's also not gonna affect your grade that much (in a bad way). So yeah, it's totally ok to watch this :D
  •   New Startscreen!! :) (courtesy of The Verge) [IMG]http://i61.tinypic.com/20azdea.jpg[/IMG]
  • 6pm Croatia ;-)
  • Love the stream music. Got my studded wear on and I'm ready to mosh!
  • Where is this stream you speak of?
  • No sleeping tonight India. :D
  • Thank you for the GMT time, Richard.
  • Just about half an hour to go...
    The anticipation is palpable.
  • Waiting Lumia 940
  • ohhh.. feeling excited... come come come 30 mins to go... #W10
  • More 27 mins
  • Oh ya!!!!!!
  • Cool waiting
  • I wish the event would play on the Xbox live events app
  • What a great suggestion!
  • I am going to bed and checking tomorrow. I don't expect major changes. I just hope Windows phone 10 includes the keyboard inputs that are still missing, makes a browser that works, allows for more customization, makes Office a working app (as opposed to the dummy it is now) and comes up with a good mail client (like in really good). Of course allowing also for 3-row wide tiles would be a great idea, as well as overhauling the "action center" where there is little or no action at all. Putting menus in an alphabetic order would be good, too. But perhaps i am asking too much.
  • Just came from the BETT Show in the UK the Microsoft rep there said they will be showing off some new phone. The 1520 is end of life as an update is coming in the autumn. Just rushing back from there to watch it.
  • Will be watching the whole broadcast with my three year old daughter ^_^
  • the agony of waiting
  • I'm seeing a countdown!!! =D YAY!!
  • I'm Going to bed .. I'll check tomorrow.. Hope we will get the best
  • Can I watch on Xbox?
  • waiting, can't wait!
  • Dinner done, tv program missed....am ready for the next chapter...yo...india ✌

  • Hello help please how can I watch this on my Xbox one or windows phone?
  • HI MAX PFER!!
  • "Incredible levels"?  Really?  Based on what?  I'm certainly not excited about it.  None of my friends are excited about it.
  • +5
  • bufferrrrrrrinnnnnngggg
  • OMG, The BUFFERING is obnoxious as hell!
  • Damn Buffering!! Don't use "Live"
  • I thought it was my PC, it was horrible. Tried watching it on my Xbox one first, then switched to PC
  • This guy Myerson is torture to listen to...a terrible speaker.
  • Totally agree.
  • Where to watch?
  • It's now or never
  • DX12 updates please
  • What was that phone???? :D
  • Where to watch?
  • Where
  • I really hate how Microsoft doesn't realize how bad their problems with live streaming looks to the world. Every time there are trouble...
  • Video showed off Office. Looked cool
  • Damn MS! What's up with the buffering? This is the most important even ever, and they're screwing it up.
  • Any one see the updates Windows 10 devices pic? Windows Phone appears to have a background with translucent tiles!!!
  • waiting waiting waiting
  • Thanks for this live blog. The streaming is just not cutting it.  
  • Dude....i really want to watch it.... But unfortunately.....128k down ,64k up...., man.... My internet**(###@aa**)***
  • Better to watch after the event on YouTube
  • Deplorable buffering, then video not found.
  • Buffering stopped once Joe stepped up. Coincidence? Happy now :)
  • Windows as a Service.....STOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP! Windows 10 is probably the last Windows "version".
  • Video stream is crap here
  • Any thing new
  • Smh... This is your opening act? Hire people to specifically present your products or only use JoeB.
  • So far its pretty interesting. Couple of pauses for applaud without anyone applauding.....must be pretty awkward
  • Everyone is typing :) Plus they're not iSheeps.
  • Their Live stream is HORRIBLE just like everything from MS!!!
     
  • Oh really, thn what are you doing here dumb
  • Windows as a Service... OMG... :-/
  • Free upgrade for the first year for anyone on WP8.1 W8.1 or Windows 7
  • I was so excited to hear that! I literally applauded when I heard the news!
  • Clam down friends... All over the world want to watch this live telecast. So this could be the reason for buffering
  • What is first year ? Posted via the Windows Central App
  • This buffering is atrocious...
  • Any update about WP?
  • I am a few mins late but catching up
  • If only the streaming worked... It's already at least 5 minutes late, and it's buffering like crazy. Jeez.
  • People in the room don't seem that excited :3
  • All I want to know is: has MS fixed the Windows Media Center bug that makes it impossible to watch TV on a laptop that has internal DisplayPort connection? Because that is a huge problem for some of us that paid extra to get the Media Pack.. hope they keep WMC and hope they fixed that.
  • What Tablet is that? the one that Joe Belfiore used in the demo?
  • In class so I'll have to catch the highlights of the event as they come. Keep me posted WC.
  • Projector...check, lazyboy...check! Popcorn...check!!!!
  • Daniel is faster than video.
  • Free udgrades for the first year what does it mean ...anybody clear my doubts in this planet.... Posted via the Windows Central App
  • Daniel your coverage is excellent
  • First mention of Windows Phone 30 minutes in? Yikes. Of course with the buffering, maybe I missed it. ;)
  • Anyone else having bad stream?
  • buffering very often ...
  • Steve B. must be fuming. The new guy is destroying shareholder value!
  • The Stream sucks for me constantly buffering :( I just hope there will be a complete record to watch later.
  • No
  • New we need a small microsoft "echo" type of device
  • I can't believe Im not able to watch this on my 1520 ... What a bunch of bs
  • Nevermind! Now that I missed mist of it, I got it working.. I just had to switch to "mobile mode" in IE settings... Duh...
  • I couldn't figure out how to watch it live in IE on my Xbox one
  • Too much buffing issues, I'll have to watch another time besides I have to go.  I hope it's available to watch not live.
  • It'll be on YouTube. Microsoft promised it would be.
  • Why do all of these software giants have terrible video streams during presentations?
  • Wouldn't have happened when Steve B. was around.
  • I am watching PERFECTLY from my Lumia 1020, with no glitches nor interruptions, I think the problem is your ISP. I'm from Mexico.
  • 100 Mb connection here. A bit better now, perhaps some viewers quit.
  • 20Mbps here ;)
  • Yeah, works fine now that I changed to mobile mode in IE settings.
  • I am so stoked. This stuff looks great.
  • Please don't postponed!
  • Nice wp ui 10 rocks Posted via the Windows Central App
  • Yeah, its really looking awesome
  • Apple and Google jost got schooled.. to put it politely.
  • EDIT: And I guess Sony a bit too..
  • I want to see onedrive on the PC show onedrive shares as well..
  • Metro (Moderm) is dead!
  • Not dead, just reborn. :) There's definitely the main elements of it left, but it's certainly much less spartan than it was before.
  • Sorta glad i stuck with MS right about now
  • Unless they release CP to public, they can keep their theoretical bullshit to themselves.
  • Very impressed!!! If you use Windows at work and home how could you not want a Windows phone?
  • hows the event going. sorry im not connected to WiFi right now what's happening about windows 10
  • Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for Windows 7, 8.1, and WP8.1, Cortana will be on the desktop, a lot of improvements will be made to WP, Spartan, and some other stuff.
    And that's pretty much it in a nutshell.
  • hi there! New game on Windows Phone! "DROP HUNT" Addictive puzzle. Brain game. FEATURED on Windows Phone 8, exclusive
    https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/drop-hunt/939bd2eb-36b6-446... "Lamphead" Unique gameplay Runner. Now available on Windows Phone 8, exclusive
    http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/lamphead/2dafe4c4-a0e6-4011-...
  • Very happy with the new look, can't wait to try out all this new stuff
  • Same!
  • Sorry guys...but super boring on the phone side. Background apps, fast response, voice typing and bunch of individual universal app (That would work on 8.1 too imho.)...
  • That pretty much sums it up yeah. Small details, but then alot of small details can make a big change..
  • I personally expected a bigger changes and improvements that WP platform need so much.
  • Like what? These are awesome improvements on an already great platform. Also remember that this is what's ready to be shown right now. I'm sure there are many details not shown yet that will be coming. The only disappointment for me is that there was no mention of new phone hardware. EDIT: well, not yet anyway, though the presentation isn't over.
  • Wow! The 'Spartan' browser is a game-changer. It is going to change the way how we surf the internet, how we read articles, how we watch videos on youtube and other video sharing website, and how we basically do things in the  web.
  • Pretty bold statement if you ask me.
  • They showed off Spartan? Is Spartan actually it's name?
  • Yeah they showed it, but Joe Belfiore said CODENAMED "Spartan", so it doesn't have a name yet.
  • Meanwhile we're busy watching the event, Windows Central missed an article, " WhatsApp bumps to version 2.11.634.0 ."
  • Haha good one buddy!
  • A lot of white backgrounds in Windows 10. I like the look of it on my PC, but for my phone I'm quite keen on the dark option - hope this is in settings. So far, looks very good.

  • That was an awesome coverage. Thanks!, Dan and Windows Central team.
  • Im impressed. Good work MS. Beat Google with thier Magic Leap with Holo, flagship phone coming in april, best experinece on our platform, matched Sony PS4s game streaming, univeral code, touch based word/ppt/excel, continuity between phone and computer, that big ass TV I knew your were gonna talk about (it was branded Microsoft). Looking forward to hearing more.
  • Imagine if in a few years HoloLens will be just a set of contact lenses....  And everyone has them... I swear were all going to be living in the Matrix.  (I can't wait!)
