Just yesterday I, along with another 35 Nuffnangers were invited to an event organized by Microsoft.
Microsoft developers flew in from as far as Germany to come here just to speak to the small select group of us before their Tech Ed Convention that they will be holding this week.
The event was well-planned, held at the right venue and even good food was served throughout, all courtesy of Microsoft.
They revealed Microsoft Popfly, Homeserver and Silverlight which I must say that I was quite impressed with. The creativity that it takes to come up with ideas like that is truly something.
Anyway, something else bought me over that night.
There was a lucky draw and they were giving away some Microsoft products, everything from Software to even Hardware like the really expensive Microsoft Keyboard and laser mouse apparently worth RM300.
And guess what... I WON THE MICROSOFT KEYBOARD AND MOUSE SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR MAC.
Which wasn't hard of course... since there were only 4 Mac users there in the conference. Yah I know... what were we thinking right? It's like a a Liverpool fan going to a Manchester United Fan Club meeting.
I asked Nic from Microsoft
"Nic... you guys intentionally bring these Mac products so you can single us Mac users out from the crowd huh?".
Nic: Yes... we intentionally do that so we know who you are and we follow you home, tap your lines and stalk you until you go back to using Windows.
I LOVE MY NEW KEYBOARD!!!!
MESSAGE ME... MESSAGE ME ON MSN RIGHT NOW SO I CAN TYPE MORE ON MY NEW KEYBOARD... MSG ME!!!!!!!!!
