If you missed the Bill Gates CES Keynote webcast last night on, there is no concern to panic, the video and full transcript is now available here.

Online blogger pub Engadget, uploaded a realtime text/photo report from the Hilton Hotel keynote. Check out the excerpt below:

7:45 - On Portable Media Center—partnership with MTV, who is working with the “Windows ecosystem”, and expected to work with MS on PlaysForSure biz. Oh, and TiVoToGo (which we already told you quite enough about), but also the ability move of content to PMC-enabled devices.

7:50 - Expect Oregon Scientific alarm clocks and other such smallish devices that will connect and pull data from the SPOT network! Hype!

7:52 - On gaming: game development is going to be made simpler in ports between Xbox and the PC. Xbox hugely successful in 2004, outsold PS2 (hey, it made our comeback of the year noms list!). Xbox live and Halo 2 stuff; you guys are in the know. Gates believes that gaming is becoming a hugely social activity, especially enabled by high speed connections. Some nerd is demoing a racing game ala 2000 replete with mods and customs.

7:55 - Whoa, a Blue Screen of Death on the Xbox! Damn, this is a Microsoft address!
