I agree. I would have never guessed that's what it meant. Even just a little asterisk or something would go a long way.
Or at least a tooltip if you mouse over the ghosted slider thumb.

Glad you picked up on the Channel 9 connection
Indeed, this PDC will be a physical and virtual manifestation of the core Channel 9 philosophy: Welcome to the sausage factory, developers. You will get to meet folks you've never met before and interact with fellow developers who write Microsoft's platforms, tools and services in their native habitat, not some giant conference hall.... This will be a very deep and very focused PDC. Developers only.
The future is,
Does C9 want to sponsor any students to attend?

so nothing was done with this "idea" ...
an idea for good... an idea to make MS seem caring - to make it seem human
Ballmer could have been on CNN - urging other ceos to save the wetlands or the animals or anything...
but you blew a billion on KIN or whatever instead and sold 200 phones
*the 1970's called - they want their soul back
edit/ps... will ms EVER listen to ideas posted here? if not this one... i doubt it.
* and how are the 2000 free fonts for web coming along... sheesh.
How do I know that isn't a link to a shock site or something worse?!
Doesn't it take you longer to use a URL shortener than the real URL?
Shortened link leads to: http://techcrunch.com/2010/07/06/woot-ap/
For future reference, you can preview is.gd links by appending a - to the end of the URL, or by enabling automatic previews. TinyURL has a similar feature, and Bit.ly has a preview plugin that will give the full address for any of the major shortening services on mouseover.

Nice Option 1
We use the existing back end feeds and interfaces to service our app (this isn't looking too hopeful at the moment - unless we have severley limited phone app functionality).
Nasty Option 1
If we can spec all the feeds we need, maybe we can get that agreed for the future desktop incarnation, and in the short term we could build them ourselves (ie cobble them together via existing feeds and screen scraping - yes, I said it)
Nasty Option 2
We build an app over the existing HTML - our app parses the HTML and adds useful new mobile functionality (EG Save this video to my Phones' Zune) etc.
Given that we have a nice compliment of developers we might consider doing all three and seeing where that leaves us?
The public facing web services are more than adequate for viewing right now. It's editing and adding content that gets hairy (I didn't dig far enough into it to figure out how to authenticate and edit posts).
Sounds like it's a moot point, though, if the web services are going to disappear with Rev9. It'll probably make doing this right impossible-- RSS? Eew...

1. Don't use constants, use enums.
4. Don't [necessarily] use two methods. Do use named arguments.
GetAccount(withContactHistory : true)
Named arguments used in this way is a way to get the benefits of enums without actually creating an enum.
4. Very Smalltalk/ObjectiveC-ish.
Actually, that's one area I like about Objective-C: it's very easy to tell what a given overload of a method is going to do without resorting to Intellisense or the docs. They don't do default parameters over there, though (if you don't want a parameter to take a default value if not specified, you have to write a different overload to handle that signature).

Well Apple is here to alleviate your ignorance, sir! For the past few weeks they have been running ads showing exactly how to hold your phone:
