Todd Rutherford is Microsoft's Senior Product Marketing Manager for Windows focusing on entertainment technology, consumer scenarios, and product demonstration.
 
Todd says, "PCs play a critical role in nearly every person’s life. From creating a job resume to playing games or passing time watching funny videos, PCs should be fun and easy to use and do the things that delight and empower the user. My job is to transform the way we think, talk, and demonstrate Windows to be more about the specific ways in which this amazing device is experienced, and less about the technology and feature names that make it possible."
