All The Technology Announcements From Microsoft TechEd 2013

While Gizmodo Australia has been drowning in motherboards at Computex, Lifehacker Australia has been knee-deep in Windows at TechEd North America. Here's the key news so far from the show, from Windows 8.1 enhancements to a range of fancy new hardware.

We're at TechEd all week, so this is only the tip of the iceberg (there are definitely other topics we plan to dig into, including the updates to SQL Server and Visual Studio). Check in again at 1pm today for insights from our three visiting bloggers, offering an IT Pro perspective on the first day's events.

Visit Lifehacker's World of Servers Newsroom for all the latest news from TechEd North America 2013. And don't forget: TechEd is coming to Australia in September. Click here for more information.
