January 9, 2004 | Source: Wired News

Bill Gates kicked off the annual International Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday night by touting a mix of “seamless computing experiences” inside and outside the home, driven by Microsoft technology:

  • The Windows Media Center Extender, which allows consumers to retrieve and control digital music, video and photos stored on Microsoft Media Center PCs from their TVs.
  • The portable Media Center, which is small enough to fit in a pocket yet stores and plays audio and video.
  • Microsoft smart watches, made by Fossil, which can receive news, weather, calendar information, stocks, messages and, soon, sports scores, from existing radio networks.
