Weird, The Verge isn't doing a live blog for Build, but they are doing one for Amazon's live event.

Tom just posted a live blog. http://live.theverge.com/microsoft-build-2014-live-blog/

 

I think we are only two people alone here and excited... :D

Live stream seems to be delayed by 30 seconds. That's expected.


Bragging about Steam on Windows, and Windows phone


Our Windows 8.1 Update. That's the name so far.

Windows Phone 8.1 will be more personal and hints at more phones.

 

cromax and prestige join OEMs. Shown phones.

WHAT NO THAT LOOK WEIRD

Lock screen locks heavily modified, increased user customization.

Android like API, can modify the system heavily.

2014-04-01_21-00-34.jpg

 

Action center and notification center.

Seems like the API is getting better, and the Windows Phone is becoming more open.

 

He seems reluctant to show the start screen.

 

Start screen shown. Looks a lot like Windows 8.x

SHE COMES TO LIFE

CORTANA


HALO AND BING STUFF WITH MANKIND ACHIEVEMENTS


Cortana confirmed.


Half life 3 confirmed

 

2014-04-01_21-06-37.jpg


Cortana has a sense of humour.

"Cortana, I love it, it's certainly more catchy than Microsoft Personal Assistant V1 2014." That's a Cortana reply.


Seems like Siri + Google Now, combined.

Start screen with notifications and a notification centre. I could well be jumping back onto the Windows Phone bandwagon.

Cortana can be extended with apps.


Cortana Notebook. Probably the last remains of the Courier idea.


Kind of like an NSA database.


2014-04-01_21-10-46.jpg


Advanced do not disturb with inner circle.

2014-04-01_21-11-39.jpg


Belfiore skips a leak headline on the news :)


Cortana can scan email. And the service does not read it. Your phone only looks at it, and then processes it into anonymous data for the service to get information.


Microsoft seems more laid back.


The voice seems roboty.


Voice recognition has probably a 1 second delay per syllable/common word


Cortana bugs out, and will be a beta.


Cortana bugs out again.


It is US only for now, but will be launched to other countries soon.


Cortana bugs out TWICE when converting temperature in kelvin.

Cortana has a sense of humour, and can answer halo questions

2014-04-01_21-22-22.jpg


Can filter content on the phone like email


Cortana can be silent


I'll give Microsoft some slack, they need more data for cortana to learn about stuff

 

and cortana can do event based reminders. when you talk with a person, it can remind you to say something.


NEW VERSION OF SKYPE

Probably better.

Call failed.

"This is totes amazeballz."

-  Myerson

 

2014-04-01_21-27-46.jpg


Cortana knows that she called siri a b***h on jimmy fallon's show


Business support for Windows 8.1

Enterprise VPN support.


S/MIME support. Encyrpted email


Can block saving files locally

 

can block apps during work


awkward conversation


if you remove a corporate link, very trace of the business will leave your phone


new redesigned store

2014-04-01_21-36-00.jpg


No more lorem ipsum on the monthly view in calendar


2014-04-01_21-37-19.jpg

Shows weather

 

 

2014-04-01_21-38-41.jpg

WiFi Sense

Learns about good wifi networks

automatically connects to public wifi networks

automatically accepts the portal page

you don't have to ask what's the wifi password

will share private wifi networks automatically and will have them in a sandboxed environment, only internet access


integrated Skype with phone


Kind of like Facetime

Other apps can extend to the phone app


Swype functionality.


Called Word Flow

Windows 8.1 Update 1 is next. Rumors are flying that Wzor and Canouna will be executed on stage, but I have my doubts.

World Flow beats the world's fastest typing, which was previously held by Galaxy S4

AFD stands for another freaking driver.

That driver is for winsock.

It was because the driver can't be named the same as a dll

 

I hear some talking on the live stream

 

UNIVERSAL WINDOWS APPS


Windows Runtime everywhere. PCs, tablets, and phones.

 

2014-04-01_22-04-45.jpg

Unified grid system interface
