You have to love Satya Nadella’s Microsoft. He announces a vision and the company delivers, Bada Bing, Bada Band.
Nope, “Band” isn’t a typo — we’re talking about the Microsoft Band. It went on sale yesterday and, get this, it sold out online almost immediately. A few Microsoft retail stores (that no one knows about) may still have one, at least until the mall rats start telling everyone that a new store just opened.
For now the Band is being branded as a fitness tool (we’ll get to features in a moment) but it’s really about productivity, machine learning, Cortana and data.
This baby is going to have your number(s) and has the potential to run your life.
