@Technology integrated into cars - I would like Cortana (with her Halo series' voice) integrated into the car.

Ping Episode 225 with RoomAlive, Transparent SmartCovers, Plex and NHL for xBox, OneNote Class and XIM!Oct 15, 2014 at 7:47 AM
@area code - 225 is Baton Rouge, LA; 226 is not a valid area code ;)
@RoomAlive - I think that a zombie game like L4D2 would work well when you're clearing out rooms of the hotel in the beginning.

"Monday morning before the show is up (cough cough)" -- Love it. (was shocked to see it this early in the week)
Cortana - Shut the lights off after I become unresponsive after a binge coding session.
Ping 221: Forza Horizon 2 Demo, Alienware Alpha, Coolest Cooler, Windows Store Apps, and Lag-free cloud gamingSep 10, 2014 at 6:01 AM
- Flip-out solar panel for charging
- Interchangeable wheels (so you can put on "beach tires" for sand)
- Built-in 9" cooktop w/ mini-propane tank (not sure where that would be -- maybe instead of the blender as an option)

Dress code in Indianapolis - Shorts, t-shirt, running shoes. T-shirts with superhero icons or some funny saying is encouraged because it distracts your opponents during some of the foosball games during the day. ;)

@Virtual body hack - I believe they had a futurist version in the movie Gamer.
@1994 - Gopher, Netscape, UseNet, IRC... those were good times in the web world. I miss my Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. I survived the console wars. ;)
Ping 213: Ping Pints! Massive storage on OneDrive, $650 towards your surface, safer families and some or our favorite apps!Jul 01, 2014 at 6:37 AM
@Locations - I think traveling locations, while more costly to the Ch9 hosts, is really cool if you can afford to do it. ;)
@Apps - Since I'm still rockin' my HTC Radar (WP 7.8 [forced update]), I don't have access to some of the newer apps made for WP8, but one of my favorite apps that I do have is YouTube HD (not the main YouTube app). It allows me to download any of the videos from YouTube to my phone and create a playlist. This comes in handy with the young kids to entertain them in a pinch (they watch the same videos over and over, but don't seem to care). Plus, I can save some "how-to" videos when working on my bike, etc.
Ping 212: Cortana in Canada, NASAs new ride, Charging trousers, Home automation ventures, and Xbox July update!Jun 26, 2014 at 5:21 AM
Star Trek? WTH is that? LOL
@Charging Pants - I just envision them catching on fire near the "last" place you would want. I'm for a charging backpack as well because nothing is more annoying than having to get things out to simply charge the laptop in the airport, conference, etc.

The Skype translator is just cool.
@E3 - Can you get more info on Halo 5?
I have to shell out my cash
can I get one free?
I think my favorite episodes were around the future of ASP.NET (http://channel9.msdn.com/events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2014/DEV-B385#fbid=) seeing how that language is evolving. Always fun to watch people doing a demo of an alpha project since sometimes they are buggy and seeing how the presenter is able to talk past issues (that makes a great presenter).
Even though I'm a developer, I've always told the IT pros that not only do I have to know my job, but I have to know their job as well since we developers need to have servers configured a certain way for our apps. So I watched Joey and Rick's sessions: http://channel9.msdn.com/events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2014/DCIM-B325#fbid= I used to do a co-op talk with a Server guy (kind of like Spy vs. Spy) that was fun to point out things that developers do that drive IT admins crazy and vice-versa.
Tech-Ed looked good. Maybe some year I'll actually attend if someone covers the entry cost. ;)
