  • Microsoft Watch

    Since they make it out for health,  why not a simple blood alcohol test?  Diabetic blood sugar test would also be helpful for many.  These could be little add on options.  Also, make it contain a quick lookup for your medical parameters like blood type, chronic conditions, next of kin to call in an emergency.  For aging adults a feature of " I have fallen and cant get up" with a gps location.  Lots of stuff to be added.   An insect repellant (sends out sound waves which insects do not like) would be nice when walking in the woods.   Also, when in NYC it would be nice to have a needle with a potent chemical that would freeze a mugger attempting to rob you.   Then I would pay 500 bucks for it. 

    Also, if it could talk to my car and garage door opener (learn the codes like my car does) so I don't have to mess with keys. (it has a microphone so it would recognize my voice and open when I say "open the damn garage door ") .  

    A quick button that would ring my cellphone to get me out of a meeting or boring conversation would be nice also. (without offending the parties involved.)

    No blood pressure check?  No NFC to unlock doors and checkout at store?   Needs more work.

  • Why no Silverlight or Flash

    Bass loses the argument and now he plays dumb.   Why don't he just admit he is wrong?   If I am ever wrong, I am sure to admit defeat.:D   Silverlight is better than HTML browser based apps.    Case closed.   (I did like the conversation to a point but now it should end)   Also,  better technology does not always win in the market.  Many factors can cause one technology to win over another.

    JavaScript apps are cheap looking, cheap feeling and plain nasty compared with native applications (I am developing JavaScript websites now for a living)

    That explains why your so miserable lately.    Are you not mad at Microsoft and Sinofsky for causing this pain to happen to you?   Microsoft (yes the CEO does read this),  listen up and bring back Silverlight and lift the dark clouds off your image and make your developers happy again.

  • Android 5.0 announced

    Microsoft is at 10 so it should be twice as good as Android.  Google needs to have the same technology as Microsoft where you write to Java/C# and it compiles to native optimized code.

    What we need is another level of abstraction.  You know some kind of container application that can run on all 3 watches and you develop your code to run in this container.   Every problem is solved with indirection and abstraction.  I am being sarcastic but here we go again.

    Maybe this is a job for Xamarin.

  • Finally -- my tech prediction has come true ...

    @RealBboy360: No but I can reach over 2 feet,  pick up the remote, and then it goes there.   I do work up a sweat doing it so I can see the big benefit here.  :P

  • Telerik being sold to progress software

    Vesuvius is all doom and gloom lately.  I don't think UI is going away but those companies did peek out and the market saturated.

  • Finally -- my tech prediction has come true ...

    I have always been able to pull up tv guide on phone, tablet , or laptop even with the tv off.

    The spot watch started the micro .net framework so that is a big plus of the program.   I will agree that Microsoft needs to pursue the original ideas a bit longer and not just give up on them.
