    From the Developers Conference

    Major positives going forward. Extreme zooming in W 8.1. 3d printing supported just like printing a sheet of paper to your regular printing. That is correct. Only OS that makes 3D printing that easy. By the way Staples is releasing a under 1300 dollar 3d printing. You will be making things in your living room by Christmas of this year. Skype incoming calls now supported on Lock Screen. The traditional start button is not there. It is exactly as I said about 3 months ago. You put mouse in low left corner where old start button was and right click. If the context menu does not do it for you than boot into the desktop mode. Lot's of updates of course. I notice all my email notifications on the screen now. I do not know if I like that or not. Everyone around you can see them. Ballmer mentioned there are a lot of phone coming from Nokia. The broadcast was in Microsoft Silverlight. I ran continuously without pausing. You had to be sharp enough to go to the desktop because Silverlight does not run in the metro Windows 8 browser. I spent years working with Silverlight. I think they have hooked up with Nokia's NSN because Silverlight was quit frankly running to fast to not have used it. That will be an exciting new business collaboration if so. One thing for sure, Nokia is a top level company on the innovative front they were mentioned and no indication of Surface Phone. Nokia appears to be firing on all cylinder 10+ on the innovation level and will have a 41 mega pixel camera on their new Windows 8.1 phone. Microsoft is not playing around. The innovation level and pieces of the puzzle with Oracle are putting a complete end to end solution in place. This is the new Microsoft and this stock is going higher.
