Closing Windows: Microsoft and its platforms are nowhere to be found at CES
Posted: 09-Jan-2014 [Source: The Verge]

[The big news from Microsoft at CES this year was that there was nearly no news from Microsoft at CES this year, according to this report.]

Tom Warren -- For over a decade, Microsoft was the dominant presence at CES. But after pulling out the show in 2013, the company has faded almost completely from view this year: the biggest Microsoft story at CES 2014 is that first-choice CEO candidate Alan Mulally has declined the job."


"If the lack of laptops and hybrids is a mere blip on the radar due to a quiet CES or a busy holiday season then there’s nothing to be alarmed about. However, if it’s a greater trend across 2014 leading to less refinement of the ambitious designs that PC makers have experimented with then that could spell further trouble for Windows 8 and its hybrids. With exciting new hardware like Pebble, Nest, and various fitness bands still not fully supported on Windows, the industry is starting to moving to new devices and leaving Microsoft's platforms behind. 2013 has been a mixed year for Windows 8 and its associated hardware, but 2014 could be the year when PC makers and the industry give up and play it safe, leaving Windows — and Microsoft — truly under siege."
