News to Me: Surface, Roomba, Surface, Search, Office

I often come across interesting articles online and want to share them some way on my blog.  I considered a few different ways to do this, including incorporating a microblogging platform like Twitter into my blog, but I think it will be better to simply make longer blog posts with several links when I accumulate enough.  I guess I’ll give this a try.  Here is what’s news to me:

  1. Microsoft Surface SP1 adds a slew of new features.
    I thought this was really cool.  I think Microsoft Surface technology is really great, and would love to develop applications for it one day.  I also love videos that give insight into the workings of big (software) companies like Microsoft.  This video is included in the linked post:

  2. Long exposure shows Roomba cleaning path
    I’m a Roomba owner myself, so that made me even more inclined to think that this picture was really cool:

  3. 11 Killer Apps for Microsoft Surface
    Some of the apps are pretty ridiculous, but I do like this video:
  4. Microsoft search to be powered by open source
    I thought this was interesting, because it contradicts Microsoft’s “monolithic evil empire” stereotype.  Keep an eye on kumo.com.
  5. Leaked: Office 2010 Technical Preview screenshots
    I am looking forward to getting my hands on the Office 2007 Beta, especially to see the Ribbon in OneNote and Outlook.

That’s it for now I guess.  Hopefully I’ll continue to do this. :-)
