Recently Skype Celebrates 10th Anniversary, After Tagging with Major IT Company Microsoft, Skype made lots of new updates, And still improving it a lot. Now Skype try to implement the 3D format Video chat with TV’s and Laptops. But still the no idea  about the 3D capturing technology.

“We’ve done work in the labs looking at the capability of 3D-screens and 3D-capture,” Skype vice president Mark Gillett told the BBC during an exclusive interview. Gillett explained we have the right display technology already — we see that in our computer and TV screens — but the camera tech is still holding up 3D video.

So in future any one needs to be talking 3D Format the wanted get a 3D Capturing  Cam to support. And how this 3D function will work with Smartphone now days most of them moving from PC and Laps to Smartphone. If Microsoft planning to launch 3D format video chat they should give the Capturing solution also together.

Another Microsoft CEO stepping down it’s not a good since to Microsoft, within one year steping down mean some issues with the company? lots of questions popping out, No direct replacement has been lined up, and as such, he’ll remain on-board as CEO until the committee finds the right person.

One thing’s for sure, whoever does take Ballmer’s place has a tough road ahead of them, as the desktop market share continues to erode and Microsoft struggles to gain footing in the mobile space, even after the launch of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. No word on what the big man plans to do post-Microsoft, but here’s hoping he gets a little rest and relaxation in the meantime.

Find a Company CEO is not easy and especially for Microsoft.  But for now several tech blogs  mention that Microsoft is building a better base with Nokia windows Mobiles, even Nokia makes very powerful hardware Smartphone for reliable prices.  Let wait and see what Microsoft management going to pick a new CEO and who is he/she?

Microsoft is reportedly joining Apple, Samsung and LG in the race to develop a smart watch.

The software giant is working on designs for a touchscreen watch device, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cited anonymous executives at suppliers.

In early 2013, Microsoft asked Asian suppliers to ship parts for a potential watch-style device, the executives said. One source added that he had a meeting with Microsoft’s research and development team at its Redmond, Wash. headquarters.

Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request to confirm reports.

The company is no stranger to wrist computing. It previously collaborated with Fossil and other watchmakers to create the Smart Personal Object Technology, which was a watch that could link to a user’s PC computer via a cable. SPOT provided stock, weather and other updates.

Rumors that Microsoft’s competitors are developing smart watches have also swirled online. Sources inside Apple’s Cupertino, Calif. headquarters confirmed in February that the company is working on a wristwatch made with curved glass.

A Samsung executive said last month that the Korean electronics giant has been “preparing the watch product for so long.”

And for its part, LG is also getting into the smart-watch game, according to sources.
