@domitianus: As you'll come to learn, there's no PRACTICAL difference. We'll cover the reason the second version works when we talk about overloaded methods and how there are 18 different overloads for the WriteLine() method ... each overload taking a different data type (or extra stuff). Hang in there! :)

@Ingrid: Please send me your files and I'll take a look at them. I have a Mac (actually, about 6 or 7 ... I'm using one right now!) and I'm sure we can figure this out. Make sure you collect them together in the same folder structure (keep any sub-folders that may contain other files like images ... try to keep it as close to what you have right now on your system), right-click (Command-click) on that folder and select Compress ___ from the context menu. Then email to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
@Changweihua: Hmm... I really don't know. Sorry ... I've never tried. I would recommend asking here:
@rictersmith: Did you ever figure this out? Perhaps the WP7 doesn't support the same API? Did you get compilation errors?
@khanh le: Do you want to control the camera OR allow the user to select a photo from the camera / photo picker thingy?
@Daniyal: Have you attempted writing a loop in C# that continues to call the play method?
@tullacs: Thank you for the very nice note Much needed at the moment. :)
re: syntaxes ... there's definitely a lot of different languages and terms floating around out there.
HTML - This series
HTML Shortcodes - I'm willing to bet this is in reference to shortcodes in a content management system like WordPress. You create "short cuts" as a theme developer to make it easier for your customers / users to add complex sequences of HTML. I've done this myself .. it's not so hard, and I'm not even really a Wordpress / PHP developer. You can hack your way through it.
PHP - A very popular scripting language for server-side web development. Unfortunately, I only know enough to be dangerous. As a Microsoft developer, I prefer ASP.NET.
Now, you want a "comparative studies" ... I don't think I've ever seen an article / book / video about this. Or are you looking for an "introduction to everything I might ever come up against in web development"? That might be interesting, actually.
@alanclesio: Nope, they wanted me to simply update the series using the latest version and I wanted to fix some problems that were reported to me over the years. Same basic "scope", example are the same for the most part, etc. Thanks!
@Alfred: Great question. The only reason I think it's necessary is so that you can make sure your data is presented and styled correctly. Personally, I like that. But if you're not worried about that or you don't mind running the app a bunch of times to make sure the data is in there correctly, then you can ignore this.
@BrentMorrisRTP: Sorry, I'm not sure what file blocking issue you're running into. I've never had that problem. Are you running with admin privileges?
@fogpotion: I'm willing to bet your reference to the CSS file is incorrect. That, or you have a caching issue in your web browser. Clear your cache and refresh.
@Fogpotion: Sorry, these lessons were created BEFORE Windows 8 was released.
@Ingrid: Make sure the PATH in your <img src=""> are pointed correctly. I cover this in more depth in the next lesson or two (it's been a long time). Download my code and make sure it works for you, then look at the src I used to reference the correct paths. Good luck!
