No more MS at CES
CES 2012 will kick off in a week or so and one of the things that always get attention are the keynote speeches at the show. Microsoft is announcing already that the 2012 CES show will be the last keynotes that it conducts. Over the years, many of the top Microsoft executives have delivered keynotes.

Even more surprising than the fact that Microsoft is not going to offer any more keynotes is that the company will no longer have a booth at CES either. Microsoft has traditionally had one of the biggest booths and it was usually packed. Microsoft says it will continue to participate, but will do so without a booth or keynote.

One reason offered for the software giant to step away from CES is that its big announcements don’t align with the January show. I don’t think this will be a big deal; Microsoft has had little that was a major draw at the show over the years.
