Today, I wanted to share the new advert that Microsoft has released for Super Bowl XLVIII.
It is a celebration of what technology can do for us and how it can empower us all to achieve more.
The advert is narrated by Steve Gleason, a former NFL player now living with a Motor Neurone Disease (MND) called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. He uses a Surface Pro with eye tracking software to speak.
Below is the advert video and the videos of the individual stories behind the advert:

Steve Gleason: No White Flags (Direct Link)
Braylon O'Neill: Making Strides (Direct Link)

This is what technology is really about: Making a difference and improving people's lives.
I really love being part of this industry.
