    A new face on Ping! sweet, welcome Eric. Shame Adam couldn't make a cameo, he hasn't been on for ages.

     

    Codeplex  is an excellent site.

     

    Wordament, one of the greatest games on WP7. I've been playing since it first launched and now with Achievements it cannot get any more awesome! Having XBL integration has certainly brought in new folks, which is great. I agree about the time running out, the 10 second countdown was one of the major missing features but now it is there.

     

    Surely by now with all the new faces you must be able to scrape together that Halo squad, Tournament coming soon...?

  • Is that a Win8 tablet Eric is using here?

  • IRBIRB

    @wkempf: Yeah, I think he said it was the Samsung Dev tablet they gave out at one of their conferences a few months back.

  • Finally got my wife on WP7 and she loves the wordament game.  Only thing i see her doing on the phone.  I haven't played it yet though.  Been to busy with SWTOR.

    One thing I'm still curious about with the Windows Live rename is I haven't seen any mention of what will happen with Windows Live Writer.  I use that app all the time for blogging.

    Good job Eric! Sorry for the let down of having to do it with Paul vs Laura  Smiley

  • @IRB, thanks - glad to join this week. As for Halo, me playing Halo is like Paul playing basketball: odds of embarrassing self-induced injury are alarmingly high.

    @wkempf, the tablet is the Samsung that we gave out at the BUILD conference, but I have it running the Consumer Preview instead of the Dev Preview. I've been using it instead of a clamshell for a few weeks and am pretty happy with it. Lightweight, thin, and has a great screen. Best of all, it runs Hyper-V too!

    @awsaxton, thanks for the kind words. On the plus side, me borrowing a shirt from Paul worked out OK. Doing the same from Laura would've understandably repelled all of our viewers.

  • Oops - looks like we have the wrong Hyper-V PowerShell video spliced in there. We'll fix that.

    Paul, next time you wanna create a "Boys without Foys" show, please for God's sake don't invite Eric Bahna! Worst host EVER!!!! Does this guy know how to smile???? OMG!!

  • @alirezanoori, wow - I do look super grumpy there! Combination of nervous to be in front of 18,000+ for the first time and upset at Paul's bait and switch. I'll get over the former, but the latter may be stuck in my craw for good.

  • We miss Laura!!! This show makes it quite clear who really is the star of Ping. I mean Paul is a cool guy, but without Laura his brilliance seems to fade somewhat.

    Laura does have a knack of making me look brilliant... theory of relativity, I suppose Wink

  • You know sometimes I think if MS is really too small for Laura? Why not Hollywood? Maybe she has what it takes to be some kind of female Popeye or perhaps Lisbeth Salander?

  • I'ts actually 3 minutes for 5 hot apps. So a lot more value for time there...

  • @EricBahna Of course you'll have a WP7? Just turn on the Windows Live Holidays Calendar. You'll never forget about Mother's Day again Smiley

    In case you didn't know, Laura was kind of a big deal on G4 back in the day.  I think Laura is only in Seattle for the weather.

    Nah, she stays around so she can host ping with you.

    @EricBahna: Sorry man, I guess I was wrong to compare you to Laura. Her job is this kind of thing. I'm sure you're like her in YOUR job too Wink In time you'll get more comfortable, hopefully Wink
