Sounds like he is trying to give Basecamp, and Evernote for Business some competition. More to follow.

Skype will be preinstalled on the start screen of the upcoming Windows 8.1 release. Doesn’t sound like it will be as integrated as Twitter in Mac OS X The Mavericks, but we’ll have to see.

SocialBro announced  integrations with Salesforce and Nimble, so that its Twitter sales prospecting can flow into these popular CRM solutions.
