Microsoft's MIX is no more, to be rolled into another BUILD-like conference

Whispers that Microsoft's MIX conference was on life support have just proven true. Redmond confirmed on its blog that the yearly web-centric conference will no longer be held, as it refocuses its efforts on larger and more broad platform-centric events, much in the vein of last year's BUILD. Following its pull-out from CES, the company muses focusing on less events means it'll maximize the effectiveness of its engineers and the press alike. We're also told, an event on the calibre of BUILD is still in the cards, and that more details will follow later in the year. Full explanation awaits at the source.
