Apparently MS seems to think we are about 5 yrs ahead of time using 10 hour fuel cell batteries or something in our laptops.
There are literally NO power bar outlets in the seating area of the entire 1300 person auditorium for keynotes. The walls on either side are ‘flexiwalls’ so no power from them. There is one outlet with two plugs in this main hall. In the breakout session rooms there are a couple outlets at the back. I went and asked why they didn’t have plugs and they were like we have wifi. I was like “power cord plugs” they were like oh?
Scoble (who was part of organizing this) – you would think that they would meet peoples power needs. Heck they have seat beanbags with Mix embroidered on them. One thing they get right even if the wifi isn’t working is that there is power.
