SOFTWARE FLOGGER Microsoft will make its last appearance at the consumer electronics show (CES) next month.
Microsoft goes with CES like queues, name badges and free mousemats, so it might seem an emptier place without a Steve Ballmer keynote speech and Microsoft's booth munchkins.
Frank Shaw, CVP of corporate communications at Microsoft revealed the decision in a blog post, and said that the firm had been considering where, when and how it should make product announcements.
It seems to have decided that its future product announcements won't be at CES.
"We have decided that this coming January will be our last keynote presentation and booth at CES, wrote Shaw.
"We'll continue to participate in CES as a great place to connect with partners and customers across the PC, phone and entertainment industries, but we won't have a keynote or booth after this year because our product news milestones generally don't align with the show's January timing." µ
