@jlcard I thought Scott Guthrie had the copyright to red polos at Microsoft.
I still think the TV in the Bing Halloween should be tuned to Channel 9.
@Jose, what is wrong with more bright colors?
I like the idea of how Cortana links back to Halo, but as far as Siri goes, I thought that was just a feature to annoy people around you. I had an iPad and never used Siri. I really did not think that was worth posting. Next time, no matter how lame or useless a comment may be, I'll be sure to leave one.
A sub for Laura... I am not sure if the people I like to listen to would be available to do a Ping or if they would want to do one. Maybe you could use one of those little 9 guys, kind of like Mr. Bill. Then you just have to find someone to do the voice.
Anyone else find it funny that the person who hosts a video show on the Internet prefers not to interact with video and or voice?

Just wear orange shirts? Kind of like a certain person who always wears a red one? I like that idea.
Checked just now and I have the text feature. Very nice. I tried it yesterday when I viewed this video but the CSS I uploaded would not work like in the video. I checked and now it does. I do not see a way to Create Text document but this is really nice!
As a side note, I found something interesting about the input type URL. Apparently it will submit as long as you have the http://. I only found this because Opera will automatically insert http:// for you. Apparently the type does not check for a proper URL that contains .com/net/org... I checked this in IE10, Chrome, and Opera. Opera was the only one that automatically inserted the http:// for me.
Thank you very much for the work that you do, it is greatly appreciated. I will definitely refer people to your series on Channel 9 and your site.
My comment is about the Switch to Windows Phone App. Don't hate, but I use a Droid 2 Global. On the plus side, this means I can try this app. I fall into one of the descriptions that Paul gave; a Droid user who is considering a Windows Phone.
The app quickly ran and reported that it found matches for 82% of my apps. It displays a neat little group of tiles (2hx4w) which change like live tiles displaying a small tile for each of the matches it found.
Next it offers to save the list to the cloud and send an email reminder with instructions on how to get the apps on your Windows Phone. This is where things start to get a bit buggy. I got the email, but it was blank. I went to the about page since that usually has links to contact the developers and sent an email to the address displayed. My email was bounced back to me.
As some one who is considering a Windows Phone as his next phone I really like the idea behind this app. I have wondered how much of a pain it might be to try to locate the same apps on a Windows Phone that I normally use on my Droid. While I thought the 2x4 grid was neat I would like to eventually see an actual list with links. Maybe the list is suppose to show up in the email that was blank.
