So... First thanks for discussing Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. I can't wait to get my hands on one. Second, can I have a soapbox please?
Let's talk connectables. The DJ thing is impressive. I only hope that they'll create some kind of developer version. Something like a blank slate and allows someone to customize key layout and actually try them out. Followed by being able to custom order a "printed" version, with the layout a developer created.
Now let's talk about what should be non-connectables. Or the docking station. Is it me, or should the docking station disappear with the PC era. How is it not possible to provide a "landing pad" of sorts for a tablet? Something that connects my monitors, network, extra CPU, peripherals and power but I need to do nothing but set my tablet down on the "landing pad" to charge and connect, like a docking station. I'm basically looking to get rid of the song and dance to "dock" something. Physically connecting, pushing this or that, or blowing on the connectors like a Nintendo cartridge from the 80's has got to go!
If you would be so kind to pass this off to Microsoft Research. Thanks in advanced!
How quickly the communal knowledge of this show's history fades!
Oh Paul, we didn't forget about you. At the very least we should retire your jersey or something. Although, don't recall you having a signature color shirt like red or orange. Can we retire a limited edition Niner? Maybe a Niner holding a trombone?
How about reprising your role in another edition of Boys without Foys? Maybe give us a taste of how Mythly Studios is doing. If you do come back for Boys without Foys, bring one of those new sexy Surface 2's to show off. Would like to see some real video of how Windows 8.1 RT responds on it.
laura is sooo carrying this show now that we only have virtual paul left
I really want to watch the episode where they are both virtual. With some random guy/girl pushing a broom trying to figure out what it is they're talking about. That way we can still have someone throwing Niners at the camera for the wrap-up. Maybe they can shot that one when Laura is in NYC for Windows 8/Windows Phone 8 launch events are taking place.
Oh, perhaps Paul should close his window blinds to reduce glare, paint a wall to give it some color, maybe tan or gingerbread, and add some overhead lighting for better camera clarity. He should also think about a better microphone too.
Gingerbread is an actual color, not a reference to an old Android version.
I kinda prefer the colors bagel and pancake. Though Azure blue might be more Microsoft-esk. However you might prefer a shameful plug of your new venture, by hanging a logo and url for people to see. (It's all about marketing.)
Actually I was thinking that Paul was really using an Alpha version of the Office 365 video chat. (Formerly known as Skype.) But hey, Microsoft buying Apple is more plausible.
OR how about this...
He was actually using the new Nokia 920 Windows 8 Phone and the image stabilization feature is so good that his girlfriend was actually holding it, instead of using a tripod. Though I'm not sure if you can use a wired headset with a phone... Just glad you picked a non-moving, anti-reflective, background to shoot with.
Did I miss something? My Bing homepage doesn't look like the one in this video. (And I don't mean because it's a different day than when it aired.) I'm looking at the bar below the main image. It's larger and appears to rotate through images. Is this a future feature?
