The European passion for football (what we in the United States call soccer) brought about the creation of a wireless location system that can tell exactly where the ball is in real time. This has proven to be a great help in training, and in knowing when a ball is out of bounds or makes a goal in a real game. It can be used in American football, but more important, the technology can be used in real-time materials tracking.

The Metro interface operated intuitively, it was smooth and responsive, and it made clear why Microsoft is aiming this OS at the tablet market.
