Microsoft CEO crashes and burns in final CES keynote

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has flopped his final keynote at the 
Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, presenting a bizarre display 
that was hosted by US entertainment personality Ryan Seacrest and 
included a "tweet choir", but virtually no new significant announcements.

Several demos failed, and attendees were dismayed that a rumored new 
Xbox 720 console wasn't revealed. One attendee remarked at the end 
"thank god it was the last year" -- reflecting the mood in the audience 
and of the live bloggers covering the speech.

This year was the final CES keynote for Microsoft, which has monopolized 
the slot for the past 15 years. In recent years, Ballmer has failed to 
come up with big new announcements to kick off the show and Microsoft 
acknowledged this when it said it was pulling out of the show because 
the January timing didn't fit in with its road map.
