Microsoft's inspiring 2014 Super Bowl commercial about all the possibilities technology has opened up for us, was a look into where technology has taken us, and where we are going with it.
"Technology has the power to unite us. it inspires us. Technology has taken us places we've only dreamed. It gives hope to the hopeless, and it has given voice to the voiceless."
With this ad, Microsoft reminded us that technology really can be one of the most empowering tools available.
