Microsoft (MS) has always provided good and world class products that have been getting a lot of good reviews as well as many criticisms. Nevertheless the products we keep getting from MS never stop getting better. One of the products they have provided is the personal computer operating system. For quite some time people have been using Windows 7. Lately there was the introduction of MS Windows 8. It was a great invention and those who jumped into using it found it quite cool while others found fault with it.
After some positive criticism from the users, Microsoft decided to bring in an upgrade of windows 8. This upgrade brings in some changes to ensure that the users find it comfortable to use. Here are just some of the features of the Windows 8.1 upgrade.

The Affiliate Summit East 2013 took place in Philadelphia from August 18th to the 20th. It all went down at the Pennsylvania Convection Center in Philadelphia which was a great spot even though we were hoping for New York again this year. The conference lasted over three days and there were dozens of activities that took place each day. There were education sessions which majored in the latest trends in affiliate marketing, I tried to attend at least one each session of the day. Many people attended including merchants, affiliates and vendors. Nice to see some friends that I haven’t seen since Vegas. This conference had the highest number of attendants for the East show to date, which was approximately four thousand.

Affiliate Summit East 2013 is August 18-20 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The sold out conference includes educational sessions and focuses on networking and hot trends in affiliate marketing. Early check in is on Saturday evening from 4 to 8 p.m.
Educational sessions include latest industry issues and trends as well as information from experts in affiliate marketing. Topics include authority blogs, marketing campaigns, liability issues, mobile click to call, and landing pages and FTC compliance, among many others. The exhibit hall will be filled with affiliates, vendors, merchants, and networks for face to face marketing. I went to both the Affiliate Summit conferences in 2011 but couldn’t convince my wife to go to Philly this time. Hopefully Nevada in the West 2014.

This year Google I/O plans to outdo last year's presentation, but the bar is set pretty high. After revealing the Nexus 7 tablet last year this year Google plans to not outdo itself in presentation but to be relaxed. A common rumor is Google Glass, Chrome, Wallet, Music and Google Maps are getting updates.

Recently, Dropbox announced its first conference for developers, referred to as DBX. The conference will be held at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, California, on July 9. Space is limited, though, and developers need to request an invitation from the company. For now, tickets are going to cost attendees $350.00 apiece. These tickets should be in high demand, so the available spaces are going to disappear quickly.

It may be 2013, but it seems as though nothing much has really changed. Obama is still the President, and in Las Vegas, the hotels and convention centers are still full of those attending various events, seminars and conferences.
One of the most well known of the affiliate marketing conferences is Affiliate Summit, founded by Shawn Collins and Missy Ward in 2003. This year's conference is at Caesar's Palace and around 5,000 people are expected to attend and learn about such subjects as generating leads, tracking performance, SEO techniques, social marketing and effective networking.
