Bill Gates delivers CES keynote

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Good evening! It's great to be here and see all the exciting things going on, the fulfillment of so many dreams and promises over the years. My first keynote was in 1994, a long time ago. That was a time when Windows '95 was just coming together. The internet was just getting started and it was within a few years of that, that we entered the start of what we called the first digital decade. During that decade the PC installed base ruled over 1 billion machines. Broadband went from almost nothing to over 250 million users. Mobile phones achieved the penetration of over 40% of the people in the world. Digital photos moved from being a film-based activity at to being something that's done trough the power of software and music went through that same transformation where today your ability to organize and select and communicate is driven fully by the power of software. The trend here is clear. All media and entertainment will be software driven. The first digital decade has been fantastically successful. But this is my last keynote and it's the middle of this year, in July that I move from being a full-time employee at Microsoft to working full-time at the foundation as you heard. And so, this will be the first time since I was 17 that I won't have my full-time Microsoft job. The second digital decade will be more focused on connecting people. It will be more focused on being user-centric. Microsoft will deliver platforms that will let people build applications. But those applications will run not only on the PC, but run up in the internet or in the cloud, as we say, on the phone, in the car, in the TV. The applications will use the best of rich platforms and those internet services. >> We have this $20 that I supposedly owe you and I've got one last challenge for you. I wanna see how good you are in Guitar Hero III. Since I know you're competitive and I know you've been practicing, I actually decided I need to bring a ringer to help me. So, I wanna invite on stage Guitar Hero champion, Kelly Law-Yone, better known by your gamertag as TipperQueen. She's gonna be my entrance into the contest. ^M00:02:45 [ Music ] ^M00:02:53 >> It turns out I've got one of my own ringer here. That's right. I've got one of the Guitar Hero III gods himself, Slash from Velvet Revolver. ^M00:03:06 [ Music ]
