Microsoft is holding three events in the next three weeks: the October 26th event that might feature new Surface hardware, an Office event on November 2nd that might introduce Slack competitor Skype Teams, and Microsoft Connect () on November 16th. We now have a launch window for Redstone 2: March 2017. What's new with Outlook and Skype? What is the future of Cortana? Does Microsoft want to be just an enterprise company that also makes video games? Bill Belichick tosses his Surface - exactly how bad is the publicity Microsoft got from its NFL deal? Microsoft still needs EU approval for its LinkedIn merger.
- Is Microsoft going to make a "Cortana Cube" Amazon Echo / Google Home competitor? Mary Jo thinks not.
- Paul thinks Microsoft should stop holding all their events in New York City.
