So sad to see Paul leave. I too had to move onto other opportunities. However; that doesn't mean the world of Ping! is over I hope! If you need a co-host let me know Laura! I know somebody that would look great on camera with you!
I have got to say, my Samsung Focus S does not stop vibrating after I pick it up when it's ringing. Is there a setting that I don't know about or is this hardware specific?
Also, Laura.. since you're the Bing expert what happened to Bing Finance? I loved that site, and alas it has gone the way of the Dodo to be replaced by MSN Money. This nice thing about Bing Finance was how clean the site was. It's a shame now because MSN is nowhere as clean as Bing was. But I guess all good clean things will get dirty at some point. YUCK!
Beacons look cool, except none of my friends have the early preview. However; Laura and Paul if you want I've got Beacons setup for Fruit Ninja Kinect. Friend me and we can play (same as my profile nickname)!
I am so glad that Ping! episodes are being published more regularly again. Coooooool.
I add that Laura could run a marathon to benefit the gorillas!
http://www.denvergorillarun.com/ is a 5.6K (which in Laura math would probably be something like a half point 6 K marathon) and takes place this year on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 11:00am (registration from 9:00am to 10:30am).
An AR style head mounted display that could show Laura the correct trajectory for throwing the Nine guy. Maybe just a display panel that is hidden behind the camera with a Kinect that could coach her based on previous throws.
Or maybe just a simple Windows Phone 7 app that has a live tile to show how many times she hit the camera in the latest episode.
Yeah, but I KinectFusion is available now to us non-Microsoft employees. I admit the Photosynth stuff is neat and hopefully the Bing maps thing will be available soon. I guess my argument is when (or if)? vs. now. The downside of Photosynth and Bing is that it's not very useful for stuff you'd want to use with CAD.
