Steve Balmer and Ryan Seacrest gave us a peak (peak being the operative word) at Windows 8, Windows Phone 7 updates, new Xbox entertainment integrations, and interactive TV applications. And in a bizarre twist, a “tweet choir” made an appearance, singing Twitter updates about the keynote. Hopefully this only brushed the surface of what Microsoft plans to bring to the table this year.
