It's not all work, the photos app is also cross-platform. There's a unified view of all your photos in one place.
This isn't all going to be in the first build, but it is all coming eventually. One future feature will automatically create albums of photos based on location data and people in the photos. It turns them into little formatted stories/albums you can share.
Microsoft's jokes are falling flat. I think Joe Belfiore has the same writer as Craig Federighi.
There is a people app, for organizing people. A music app to organize tunes between devices. They are going to add the ability to store music in the cloud using One Drive, but not yet.
Goodbye Internet Explorer, meet Codename: Project Spartan, a new web browsing experience for Windows 10. It has a new rendering engine, a new look and feel, and has a handful of new features.
It will not be included on the next build of Windows 10, so this is just a preview.
You can doodle on webpages and collaborate with other people using Spartan. Word already has annotations and collaboration features, and Spartan steals some of those.
They've "frozen" a webpage so the content doesn't change but the links are live.
Copy part of page, clip and share segments and quotes and images. There is a reading mode and you can save things to read later, offline, and mark them up with notes. It's making web content available anywhere. Should be familiar to Safari users.
Spartan has Cortana integration. Start typing in the search bar and it auto-predicts what information you're searching for. For example, if you have a flight it knows about and start typing in Delta.com, it will automatically display flight information.
Cortana gets a panel on the side of the browser filled with helping tools like directions, phone numbers, detailed information on content from the page (calorie count for a specific food).
Next up: Gaming! Phil Spencer is going to talk about gaming on Windows 10.
Tagline: Gaming is personal. Personal is one of today's most heavily used buzzwords.
The My Games area on Windows 10 is a collection of games you play on any device. It has messages, an activity feed, contacts.

In the next week Insiders will get a new build of Windows 10 on PCs and big tablets. In February, they will release a new build of Windows 10 on phones.
Hayete Gallot is here to introduce a new bit of hardware.
Microsoft Surface Hub, an 84-inch 4k display, multi-touch and -pen, advanced sensors, dual cameras and a mic array.
The Surface Hub is a big wall mounted digital whiteboard. You can view apps on one side of the screen while annotating on a whiteboard using One Note. Use for brainstorming and meetings.

Project content from your other devices onto the screen, like a slide from a Power Point presentation.

"Virtual reality may not be for everybody, we're dreaming beyond virtual worlds."
We're dreaming about holograms."
A head-mounted display looks like it give you augmented reality with holograms.
You can see a 3D model of objects on your real table
Examples of possible uses for HOLOGRAMS, which I really hope is in all caps like I hear it in my head. Turn your living room into a gaming environment, engineers can tinker with 3D models, architects can see blueprints over their real sites.
Every Windows 10 device has APIs focused on human and environment understanding."
Holograms are Windows universal apps.
The hardware is called Microsoft HoloLens, a pair of groovy tinted goggles. There's no wire.
