‘Building the Possible’ with Microsoft

Nick Parker
Nick Parker is vice president of Microsoft Corporate. He is responsible for the company’s strategic device ecosystem partnerships.

Microsoft achieves harmony between software and hardware

The Microsoft Forum was presented Wednesday by three of the company’s leading figures: Microsoft Corporate Vice President Nick Parker, who is responsible for the company’s strategic device ecosystem partnerships, Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Windows Marketing Matt Barlow and Microsoft Vice President of Partner Devices and Solutions Peter Han.
The keynote presentation centered around the concept of “Building the Possible,” in which Microsoft aims to work with its various partners to bring innovative products and solutions to the world.
The company’s gratitude to its partners was most evident during Han’s segment of the presentation. In his speech, Han introduced the plethora of Windows 10-powered products that are tailored to specific demographics.
Han went as far as pouring juice onto a laptop developed for students by Taiwan’s Acer to demonstrate its extreme waterproof protection, as well as dropping a tablet computer from Panasonic to show his audience the mesmerizing durability of the high-tech product.
He later presented the audience with Acer’s new virtual reality headset. Combined with the Windows 10 OS, he said, the device enables people to receive technical training that would otherwise require extra time and money.
During Barlow’s segment, the audience was introduced to the engineering excellence of the new Windows 10 S, Hello, Ink and Game Mode.
Windows 10 S is the upgraded version of the company’s most well-received operating system, Windows 10, while the Hello is a more personalized edition of the same system, designed to make personal computing a more immersive and interactive experience.
Meanwhile, Windows Ink is designed for tablets running Windows OS, using a stylus that, when incorporated with the built-in software, transforms a tablet into an intelligent personal assistant.
Finally, as its name suggests, Game Mode was constructed to bring about the most advanced gaming and streaming experience. Gamers can even provide a 360-degree view of what they are seeing live to an audience at any moment.
But perhaps the most intriguing part of Microsoft’s forum was the upcoming implementation of the concept of “Always Connected PCs.” According to Barlow, the concept basically incorporates the technology within smartphones into next-generation laptops so that users no longer have to try to find WiFi signals or use hotspots from their phones.
Such computers would be built with gigabit LTE or eSIM internet solutions, and would soon bring about another revolution in technology, including the expansion of the internet of things.
