  • Continuum for Phone

    Quite interesting,

    Although I'm skeptical about the new form factor. It seems to me a cheap but good smartphone - and Microsoft has some of those - plus a good laptop, would appeal to more people than a very  expensive smartphone with a dumb terminal in a laptop form factor. I could be wrong.

    Using a computer at a parent's house, or at friends, as a screen + keyboard + mouse for a continuum phone, now that seems a very interesting scenario for work, and even perhaps for play if an Xbox controller attached to the laptop would work with continuum.

    Not having a 950, I'm wondering if you can use it with a Bluetooth keyboard (btw Microsoft please stop producing wireless-with-dongle-but-not-Bluetooth-compatible keyboards and mice, the all-in-one media keyboard would be perfect with no dongle and Bluetooth instead) and mouse.

    As a heavy user of Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter to project my 930, Surface and laptops, it seems to me WDA+Keyboard+continuum would be a great combination anywhere an FHD tv is available.





  • The Maker Show: Episode 1 - Intro to Electronics

    The teaching was so brilliant I had to put on a pair of sunglasses.

    Looking forward to watching the next episode.

  • Module 1: Introduction to ​Microcontro​llers

    When is the next episode ?

  • Project Nami an Open Source WordPress for Azure SQL and SQL Server

    Very exciting if themes and plug-in migrate without problems. Will give it a try.

  • The Maker Show: Meet Your Makers

    Thanks a million for listing the URLs of the resources you talked about during the show.

    Great show, looking forward to the next one.

  • Episode #002 - Jeffrey on Windows Server 2016 Storage

    Outstandingly concise, precise, and clear.

    To make it perfect, we'd need a downloadable or web summary with hyperlinks to the relevant topics / resources.

  • Azure Service Fabric 101 - Introduction

    What are the implications for security (isn't the attack surface tremendously increased) & portability to other cloud providers?

    At what size (& for which metrics) does it make sense to go from a container approach to a microservice approach?

  • Cloud: Data Platform Choices

    Could you please be a little more specific and give more examples?

    Especially for SQL DBs as you seem to imply they become the exception and NoSQL the norm.

  • Building ​Cross-​Platform Mobile Apps in C++ with Visual Studio 2015

    Cloud you integrate services such as macincloud with VS2015 in order to be able to develop for iOS without Mac.

  • Deep Dive into ASP.NET 5

     Learned a lot!

  • Building Devices with Windows 10 IoT

    Ideally you would show the computer screen (Powerpoint, Visual Studio, ...) full screen most of the time, and a view of the presenter sometimes.

    As it is the slides and the screen are washed up and unreadable.

    Also more working demos would be great.

    Still, so looking forward to Windows 10 IoT !

    I wish we could access a preview of Windows 10 on Raspberry 2


  • TWC9: Visual Studio "14" CTP Episode

    // Begin rant

    Greta news for PC Players but yet again another missed opportunity for Microsoft to show it is serious about Windows RT, with ARM drivers for the Xbox controller.

    First it was Office updates that weren't ported to RT.

    Then functionalities in OneNote that weren't ported such as office lenses or the recording goodies.

    And now Xbox One pad driver.

    It would be much clearer if Microsoft declared Windows RT dead, and unbricked it so that people could install their own ported desktop applications/drivers.

    // End rant

    Looking forward to testing VS 14 CTP!
