    True- but you can't develop apps on LinkedIn like you can on Facebook.

    So, if Microsoft is the most "social" company... how come Laura barely uses her Twitter? Tongue Out

    Correction- I may not Tweet all that often, but that doesn't mean I don't use Twitter. I check other Tweets and follow trending topics daily. Believe it or not- sometimes I'm more interested in what OTHER people have to say than myself Smiley

    Bah -- other people are boring (present company excluded, of course. Cool ). You, however, remain the life of the party.

    The length of the show was good this time Big Smile

    I don't want t sound all complaining but the color saturation during close-ups is very, very bad Wink

    Not so negative Paul. Blogs are great, you just need to integrate them into Channel 9 and to have topic based syndication for blogs Smiley

     

    The color saturation didn't influence me, the sound is much more important. Actually the saturation makes everything seem warmer heh.

    Does somebody over here know who is going to demo VS 2010 at the upcoming Apple's World Wide DevCon? I've heard Visual Studio is going to support iPhone development, but there is no details as to whether iPhone OS will be running in virtual PC just like Windows Phone Phone 7 does, whether developers will be able to write Objective C code in Visual Studio or may be Apple will open iPhone to Silverlight development?

    Apple's policies forbid development on any platform/language/framework other than their tooling on a Mac. Period. It is doubtful that this will ever change.

     

    This reflects my understanding of what I've read. I might be wrong.

    Then why do they have Microsoft person scheduled to give a keynote about (VS 2010 ???) during their DevCon?

    It was just a rumour which turned out, unsurprisingly, to be completely false.

    Sad

    It would be nice to have Silverlight on iPhone, though it would kill WP7.

    So will Robotics Studio go free and then be shutdown in six months (e.g. Office Accounting, etc)?  Hope not.

    Notice the close-up on the clip with Bill Gates and not on Steve Jobs. Was it possible the Steve was jotting down notes as Bill was talking?? Or did Steve have a VOX-recording app running on his iphone? (lol)

    Hmmmm......Wink
