    AR/VR is where everything is headed in the future

      Fad! Avoid! It'll never become mainstream like Xbox. Xbox +1.

    Stay far away from Xbox Hardware. It's basically the same as Surface, only HW leadership cares about it less.

    Ar/vr where? Outlook from different companies are not at all the same. By elimination I would go to AWS or Azure hardware. Growing and stable projects.

    Would not go to Surface. Very political and projects are not well defined right now. Someone always needs to get credit for something instead of doing the right thing for the product. Startup feel is gone from the old days and innovation is not a priority in our electrical design. Heavily PM driven with bad PMs that don’t define what a product should do well. Worked on two projects that changed electrical design scope midway through with no change to shipping schedule.

    Would go to hololens instead imo.
