When I came up with the idea for Life with Microsoft, I had every intention to add articles regularly. However, with home life, work, my other websites, things got difficult. Those aren’t the only road blocks.
The Microsoft ecosystem is changing rapidly. Desktop applications are making way for Microsoft’s modern design language. Windows 7 is old school, Windows 8 is present and future. Windows Mobile has been replaced with Windows Phone, a very consumer-friendly phone operating system. The XBOX 360’s dashboard is also incorporating the new look and feel of Microsoft with its dashboard looking much like the Windows 8 Start screen. The XBOX 360 is now our hub for all things entertainment; video games, movies, and music. And speaking of music and video, Zune has been replaced with XBOX Entertainment. The company is now making their own hardware which includes the XBOX, Surface tablets, and if rumors are true, possibly a phone.
It is an amazing time for Microsoft and their users. Things are changing so much that I can not keep up with it all. Therefore, I will take a break and return when things get settled =)
