Highlights of his speech:
1.  Pace of innovation over the next 10 years quicker than the last 10
2.  The way we read newspapers will change and we’ll see delivery of TV over a personalised channel
3.  Whythis change? Exponential growth in efficiency of hardware and storage capacity is fueling us to be more ambitious
4.  Computing has become a tool to equalise the small business with the large business.
5.  Huge democratization from having the internet as a tool to market your products and services.
6.  Microsoft’s $6b in R&D - devices will become a lot smaller and powerful and all will connect to the internet.
7.  What does this mean at the consumer level? Messaging & search will get better but it’s the knowledge workers that will be empowered in a more    efficient way, helping maximise productivity.
8.  75% of training is now done using video at Microsoft.
9.  We need to unify phone, computers, internet and TV. The “internet with software” will get bigger, enabling different sorts of communication channels,    reducing cost and complexity allowing more capability.
