@codefoster congratulations on the expansion of team Foster. I was behind on my codechat views so I can make up by watching the ones I had skipped or missed till you're back.
OneDrive is my default storage location for almost everything on my PC. I've stored photos I've shot on my phone (Since HTC HD7 days), my documents all go there, memorable videos (niece's first steps etc. and family events). I've also backed up all the ebooks I still had, my ringtones, any research I'm working on, case studies and my brain's backup OneNote work's there as well.
Short answer is I'm using close to 65 gigs.
Ping 227 - Xbox Digital TV Tuner, November System Update, PhotoMath, Titanfall updates, and Sunset Overdrive!Nov 03, 2014 at 9:12 AM
Probably too late to make it into the show, but Halo Master Chief Collection while I wait for what I really want, Halo 5
Ping Episode 225 with RoomAlive, Transparent SmartCovers, Plex and NHL for xBox, OneNote Class and XIM!Oct 19, 2014 at 5:02 AM
For RoomAlive I'd go to the star trek Bridge. It is a holodeck after all.

I like the Cortana concert tracking feature. I've built something for myself that I use to track events happening around me. Not yet in the app store. I'd like to see Cortana add to the music interest, Album or release tracking (not sure she does it at the moment). Example:
Emeli Sandé (or U2 for those of that persuasion) releases a new album and Cortana tells me along with my other relevant interests.

Wait, did Mark say Halloween on December 31st? It sure sounded like it :S
Cortana, when is Halloween?
Cortana stop the neighbors from hacking my WiFi
Cortana Let me know when "Person of Interest" is on (Notification on my phone or if I'm in front of the TV then Xbox goes to Person of Interest)
Cortana, record "How to get away with #@$%@#" (I can't bring myself to type that last word)
Developkc covered most of what I'd like from home automation so all that's left for me is entertainment related.
@Charles: It won't scale though. If the site or cloud service scales out to, say, 15 instances and all this state is in RAM then it would require that users return to the same server each time. If that instance goes down, all its state goes down with it; hence the need for a cache

Things I left out in my first post; firstly thanks for reading my comment on the show. I feel famous now; like I've won an award. I'd like to thank my mom and my friends for supporting me. Oh... I don't have to make a speech? Thanks anyway. I realized then that my profile picture is a 9 guy, I'll change that soon.
The MSN site is awesome 🙆. I'm loving it. I don't use one home page, in IE (my main browser) I use MSN and Bing. My other browser is Firefox, and that has an additional page which is manage.windowsazure.com
Channel 9 isn't one of my start pages but it really should be. It's in my blood though, and I hit it regularly to check on ping, cloud ☁ cover, web camps TV, azure Friday, dev radio, inside Windows phone and any other item of interest that comes up from time to time. And I have the app on my PC.
Mark, I'm holding you personally responsible for ensuring Rick brings the hash tag sign. Episode 223 shouldn't have you guys throwing gang signs 😁. (I should get a 9 guy for the reminder shouldn't I? Of course I should). The 222 in the episode title was spelled wrong. The 2 in the middle should be the one at the end, I'm not sure if anyone else noticed it.
Now adding Channel 9 as one of my home pages.

I understand from the DeFrag show that MS has a huge underground parking lot on campus. 2-3 soccer fields, 4 levels underground huge. If you can do create a mobile set, you could do it in there at various points to show how huge it is. If that's not possible, then I'd support the idea of filming in the Xbox team's area. Not too sure Satya would accept the 9 guy challenge in his office.

The cooler should have one of those next Gen Qi chargers to allow charging phones from a distance without having to place it on the cooler or connecting a USB cable. - http://www.engadget.com/2014/07/31/qi-wireless-resonance-charging/
Not too sure if it had speakers, but I wouldn't mind NFC speakers on it. Nothing too loud, but something that I can use to transfer my music to while out with friends
