Steffen is a fellow IT Pro Technology Advisor from Germany, he is very well connected to some influential people up at Corp. in Redmond and has just got back from a week there, talking with the product groups.  It looks like he’s posted some information about some satellite technology we’ve been working on quietly for the past few years.

I didn’t realise any of this was ready for public announcement, but now that Steffen has mentioned it, I can say I’m really looking forward to leveraging the new communication technology.  The idea of having my video camera link to my mum’s cell phone – all from 1500 KMs away – is really cool.

Steffen has more of the details on his blog.  Check it out!
