Microsoft will be making an announcement later today at 12PM Pacific/12ET about some new product(s). The announcement will be made by Steve Ballmer which would mean that Microsoft is bound to announce something major.
As rumors suggest, the announcement could be related to the newer version of Office; Office 15 which Microsoft has been working on for a while. Microsoft is also set to release Windows 8 to consumers later this year, so it makes sense that they would also release a refresh for Office along with the new OS.
Office 15 will sport the new Metro look which has become the signature for Microsoft products of late and will more likely than not be ported to every future Microsoft product.
