Liveblog: Mobile Microsoft Event at 10am Pacific time (live)
[Via Ars Technica]

Microsoft is holding a mobile event this morning in downtown San Francisco at Mighty. The invitation includes the cryptic phrases “All In The…” and “It’s time to share.” Ars will be on the scene liveblogging the event, which is scheduled to begin at 10am Pacific time (click here to see it in your timezone).

It’s widely believed that Microsoft will announce some sort of mobile device or platform, including the long-rumored Pink project—which is supposed to deliver the successor to the Sidekick platform after Microsoft purchased Danger Hiptop in 2008.


In the live log, there was this paraphrase of the presentations, spoken by someone in the video shown, “Some guy says if he sees an awesome fat man eating a burrito at Chipotle, he wants to share that with the world.”

Microsoft calls it ‘lifecasting.’

Wow, a phone for the budding paparazzi of the young generation. Somehow, I do not think there is a large market for club-going, social butterflies who want to document the fat people they see.

But, I could be wrong.
