TechFest catch-up

There was a lot on display last week. In case you missed it, we've got two more videos up, including a walk-around with Craig Mundie, Microsoft's chief research and strategy officer, and a look at some new photo-editing software.

There was plenty of TechFest coverage last week, but we have a couple more bits to add to the mix.

Up now are several videos from last week, including highlights of a walk-around I did with Craig Mundie, Microsoft's chief research and strategy officer.

There was a lot last week--from Micropedia , to the much-touted WorldWide Telescope to a new operating system called Singularity . To make it easier to find it all, check out this roundup of all our print and video coverage.

Also worth checking out is a video that colleague Kara Tsuboi did looking at some image-editing software that Microsoft had on display. While most software looks to edit things out of photos, Microsoft Research was showing off a program that adds things back in.

The idea is that these days, we all shoot a lot of pretty landscapes with little action going on. The program from Microsoft lets you throw in some stock images of cars and people and pets. Ideally, of course, you would be able to add-in your own images, but that will have to wait for an updated release.
