#Empowering Us All


David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday, 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:

This is what technology is really about: Making a difference and improving people’s lives.

I really love being part of this industry.
