Quite possibly the best reminder of what technology is really all about, and why it is so valuable to our world, came from Microsoft.

Suffice to say, it serves as a beautiful reminder of how technology is about far more than just pursuing the latest, fastest, greatest device, but rather can have a profound and measurable impact on people’s lives.

Whatever you do that, watch to the end (it’s only a minute) to see why Microsoft scored a touchdown with this ad and why it was particularly appropriate that it aired at the Super Bowl.
