    The Discussion

      Angry Birds is nice but I find GeoDefense more challenging. I can beat Angry Birds blind Tongue Out. Wow--how about Ballmer? Dude spoke from the heart and I believe every word.

      Microsoft FanBoy forever Big Smile

      Everyone goes on and on about Angry Birds, GeoDefense, and so on.. Why hasn't Microsoft ported "Castles & Cannons" from Zune HD to Windows Phone 7? This is an addictive game that needs more exposure. Also, "BBQ Battle" is wildly fun and needs to be in the Windows Phone marketplace.

      Who do I have to talk to to get these games ported over??

      Thanks.

      Love the show.

      Yeah, you so deserve a raise Laura for introducing me to Wordrix on your very cool Hot Apps show Smiley Yup that is me you see on the game, but darn you have some hard scores to beat Paul.

      Although, does the raise just mean you get a higher box to stand on? Tongue Out

       

      I also agree with 127_0_0_1_Matter that GeoDefence is better, AngryBirds seems a little overrated for me.

      Come on over to Scotland for a show and I'll put you up, as long as you make my breakfast too.

      Good hit Laura, finally.

       

      P.S. I still have no 9guy Crying are you sure you sent me one?

      Nice, thats some good work.

    • WhyBeTea

      Awesome show guys!
      Great place to start is Houston, since yall just opened a store down here... do a live show in the store and Paul has to wear a big cowboy hat.
      Just saying...
      Also, thanks for the angry birds. Its epic! WP7 rocks!

    • DevTez

      Dentaku, you might get some work doing the backing effects for a si-fi movie, good stuff!

    • dentaku

      I think Laura is addicted to lip gloss.

      Where I live Time Warner Cable has interactive ads.  Of course it does not support voice or motion, you have to use some buttons on your remote.

      I've not tried any of them myself so I'm not sure what you can do with them.

    • rollo

      I've emerged ...

      Not with voice control. yes, Kinect / Xbox still leading the charge there. With Xfinity a pop up shows up and you click your remote to get more content etc... but you're still interacting with the ad.

      Laura don't listen to jerks you have lovely voice.

    • Heng

      Hey Laura, do you know how i can get a Channel9 guy? i can send you something from uk in return ;)

    • Moumen

      Hey! COOOL! It's nice to hear my name on the show Big Smile and, by the way, Laura, you got my name right the first time Wink , Paul, not so much Tongue Out

      So, Laura, aren't you coming to the Imagine Cup finals in New York?! I'm actually in the team representing Algeria in the Embedded Development competition (http://bit.ly/nsBYdf) Big Smile 

      There was the opening ceremony today, and it was AWESOME! We even got to listen to Steve Ballmer, along with the CEO of Foursquare and the advisor of UN's secretary General! 

      BTW, can I get some 9 guys while I'm here?! this is a rare opportunity for me Smiley

      Thanks,
