  • Is there a reason you mention iTunes and RSS but not Zune/Xbox/whatever-it's-called-today in each of the entries here? Or why there appears to only be an Audio subscription there?

  • Great show, I want to learn more about it for I have an idea for an app that will listen to the microphone on the phone and try to do something when a certain level is reached.

    @wkempf - Originally there was an XNA version of Rx, but that has been dropped in subsequent releases. XNA is based on polling a timer loop rather than being event/stream driven and thus doesn't fit in with the "Reactive" push based models as well.
