    The power of a simple gift - put a smile on a child's face this holiday.

    Give

    One of the charities my wife and I give to each year is Samaritan's Purse - Operation Christmas Child.  It is as simple as packing a shoebox with a small gift.  Some of these children have never been given a gift, let alone have a toy to play with.  Think about that for a second.

    We take so much for granted in our lives and have so much to be thankful for.  Whether you are religious or not, why not take the time this holiday season to bring a smile to a child's face?

    Heard what the critics are saying about PDC2008?

    “Microsoft articulated the clearest strategy I've seen anywhere for the PC, mobile device and Web service. Apple has got nothing even close.”

    Joe Wilcox in Microsoft Watch

    “Suddenly they look focused as a company and I'm seeing them execute as a company,” said Rob Enderle, president of the Enderle Group and a long-time follower of the company. “The last time I thought they were focused as a company was with Windows 95.”

    Rob Enderle, Enderle Group, in Network World

    “Microsoft has a history of being able to turn the ship around and catching up quickly when it wants to."

    Felix Gaehtgens, Kuppinger Cole, in Network World

    “IT departments are scaling back. This [Azure] requires no IT staff and no server in a room. And the security is taken care of."

    Alberto Ramirez, Tallan Information, in CNET News

    Weren’t able to make it out to L.A. in person?  Who has the budget for a $2,000+ registration fee, hotel and air fare anyway right?

    Not much into watching online videos of presenters?  Would you rather meet up with your peers and have your own local conference with all of that great content from PDC including some of the same presenters?

    We hear you!
