CES Videos: The two most unusual moments from Microsoft’s final keynote

Posting from Las Vegas: Microsoft final evening gave its final Consumer Electronics Show keynote address, and it was something however abnormal. There’s no query that it was memorable. Whether or not or not that was an excellent factor is a topic of a lot debate.

First was the retrospective of Microsoft CES keynotes, above, created by remix artist Pogo. This was performed on the outset of the keynote. Sitting within the viewers, this struck me as fairly cool — a sign that Microsoft wasn’t content material to go along with the established order for its final CES keynote.

Second was the “Tweet Choir,” which made an look in the course of the present to sing chosen bits from the tweet stream in regards to the Microsoft occasion. This was a little bit of a head-scratcher, however the impact was higher within the viewers (the place we might learn the tweets on the large display screen) than on the webcast, the place the digital camera angles apparently didn’t enable viewers to see the textual content of the tweets.

Backside line, not your abnormal tech keynote. Microsoft would in all probability be getting much less criticism for taking an unusual path with these items if it had delivered some bombshell or breakthrough information together with them.
