Microsoft NEXT (http://microsoft.com/next/) is one of my favorite blogs to discover amazing inspiration about technology today and in the future. Steve Clayton (@stevecla) delivers content that should not be missed in your RSS reader. This time, again he has done it: in the article “Connecting the dots: Microsoft E3 announcements”, Steve analyses how Microsoft is converging user interfaces based on the “Metro” design language first used in the Windows Phone 7 user interface. In the near future, we will see this design language evolving and unifying Windows 8, Xbox Live and Windows Phone 7.
Very much worth a read!
