    Just cause they may say they no longer have the fla doesn’t mean they had it to begin with. I can’t believe I’m reading this.



    Believe it, Sourcecode. In a few very large cases that I'm aware of, third-parties were hired to deliver thousands of small Flash animations, but they never thought to obtain the original FLA files. Today, when they're considering an update to WPF, they find themselves out of luck. This tool allows them to preserve some of their investment in those assets.



    I don't want to cause any grief for you but I really need to post something about this in the coffehouse to get other opinions. It’s not as much a tool problem as a double standard thing that really kind of itches me wrong.

    Please come and join the discussion there.

     In many cases, they no longer have the original Flash project files (.FLA). So, this tool was built to help solve those needs.

    Sourcecode,

    You should watch deeper into the video. We do get more technical... Any time you have a customer in an interview, there is the chance for infomercialness. That said, it's nice to see how the technologies we create are being used in the real world.

    I did get a lead dev involved in the interview! Gotta give it up for that

    Thanks for the feedback! We'll continue to evolve.

    OK, I'm up for seconds, I'll have another look tomorrow.

    But if I see a Buy now and you’ll get VS2003 for only 99.99$ extra, operators are standing by !!!

    I’ll… we’ll; that would be funny.

    Sorry to say, and guy's don’t take this wrong but, this is the closest you have managed to come toward a late night infomercial. I'm honestly interested in SQL Server, and how it’s used, but way to evangelistic for me. I cut if off after 7min’s.

    I love all the other videos, and look forward to many more. Just wanted to say what was on my mind.

    No offence to anyone in the video of course.Smiley

  • Ric Merrifield - Microsoft gets down to business with Motion initiative

    Cool ideas, to bad it's patented. We have some large clients that could benefit very much from this. This would also help us communicate with them better. However innovations like this, that are patented, are no good to anyone that isn’t willing to pay big $$ for it.

    I could see IT business that are in a very specific industry like us, almost use this as a selling tool, I could map out the industry we work in to this level of detail, and really show the client we understand their business, and that we can help them understand their business better.

    I would be interested to know, if they have taken into account the difference when doing foreign business, not in the US. I have to imagine that certain processes like sales, and logistics change quite allot depending on what country the company is doing business in.

    Great video Scoble!!

  • SQL Server and Siebel Smart Client Integration

    That young guy in the bad suite with the awful tie, really should have shut up.

    Sible dude: yadaa yadaa,Big Smile
    Bad Suite : Who are you. Introduce yourself! (totally cut’s him off)Perplexed
    Sible dude: I did introduce myself …:O
    Bad Suite : You did not !Sad
    Sible dude: I’ll do it again.Wink
    Bad Suite : Expressionless

    Totally threw him off his game. The first time in my life I felt like throwing my big mac, as hard as I could at my computer screen.

    Anyway good video, but after that episode, the grey suite just bugged me for the rest of it..
