@PauloM: Sherlock - The BBC is saying Autum 2011 officially (only another 3 episodes).
@Bas: "Smarmy Cumberbatch" - I think he treads a fine line but for me just stays on the 'he's such a clever * I will forgive him' side of brilliant.
@Blowdart: Spooks minus 15 minutes? WTF?
I watched the final episode (4 of 4) of Luther the other night - Series 2 is even better than series one - the final episode really pushes the limits.
At the moment HTML5+JS+CS is pretty crap for development, the toolsets will improve but IMO this is only ever going to be the short term future. Maybe 5 years then something better will replace it.
Silverlight is better but maybe it is destined to be tomorrows betamax - Jeez - I sure hope not.
I may be completely wrong but my take is that BUILD is either:
1. (Optimistic View) an attempt to consolidate WinDiv and DevDiv by forcing them to work to a common goal.
2. An attempt by WinDiv to take some ownership of what was previously a conference owned by DevDiv (ie the PDC).
My earnings this year have been diabolical (based partially on my enthusiasm for windows phone development) so it is unlikely that I will attend in person.
Congrats guys, have a safe day (strapping webcams to fireworks might not be 100% safe)
Sad to say:
Coffee Shops (Starbucks - granted, I probably could have just carried on walking around the next corner)
Jack Wills, Joules, Abercrombie, Cath Kidson ... (All favourite shops of my two Daughters)
Computer /Gadget shops (interestingly I found a new shop which looked to be based on a typical Apple Store - it was called "Currys Black" I think)
Record Shops (old habits die hard)
Cinemas (was looking for an IMAX in case I had a bit of extra time)
But in general I just used the extra search options to see what was in my immediate area. Nothing that I couldn't do in existing apps but better all in one place.
Bottom line I had a limited amount of time but was able to maximise it using the new search options.
Bing search additions are awesome. Search is a natural place for "Scout" - I am in a strange town today and have used it several times already (granted, I could have fired up ScanSearch app but having the option off the search button just feels more natural).
