I assume this allows background GPS tracking, haven't tried it since WP7 and it didn't like it.
I'm looking forward to news on the new Xbox and sure it would be good to have backwards compatibility but most folks who want that probably already have an Xbox 360 to play those games on.
I definitely think it will have a new Kinect, Bluray will be great a well as a larger friends list.
The illumiroom will be awesome but they have already mentioned that this is still WIP and won't be out with the new Xbox.
Another great marketing campaign kicks off for Windows Phone, very funny: http://blogs.windows.com/windows_phone/b/windowsphone/archive/2013/04/29/three-smartphones-and-a-wedding.aspx

@miknone: The Xbox Reveal on May 21st will be streamed live via the console or xbox.com so they might do the same thing for their E3 content.

I'd agree with ResearchVoyager that if you are giving out money like $100 per app, it should be based on something like downloads.
IllumiShare is some pretty smart stuff, but I'm with you Laura. I want my hands on with IllumiRoom !
Worldwide Telescope is amazing, probably as close to the stars as I'm ever going to get sadly. Maybe need to start saving for a seat on Virgin Galactic.
The Xbox Rewards programme is a great incentive to reward those that spend time (and money) on the Xbox. I've been in it since it launched and so fan had almost 4000 MSP's in reward points
We call it noughts and crosses here in the UK. The funny differences I find are usually between the same word definitions here in the UK and over there in the US. Like pants, or fanny. They mean different things here :/
Have you muted your mic Laura when Paul is on full-screen? I've seen him pause and respond to something (I assume you say) but we can't hear it.
The paying the dev's thing is pretty neat but of course it is US only, so the rest of use dev's around the world are not encourage quite as much :/
In the UK we do have a similar thing, but much tamer http://www.appbuilder-rewards.co.uk/
You do seem a little lax on how bad you think getting your Xbox Account hacked could be, don't make too light an issue out of it.
Hmm tax tips, sounds like you need to set yourself up as a company and make your "base" in Luxembourg and then pay yourself via dividends/profits as they are ridiculously low in tax.
