  • HOLY LAURA, Nice pick up on that w.g. vid.

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

  • James WalkerMaximus​Paynicus *insert rockin' guitar solo*

    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

  • James WalkerMaximus​Paynicus *insert rockin' guitar solo*

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

    Was is sunny in the studio? Tongue Out You both look kind of yellow in the shots taken from eye height...


    Otherwise, good show!

    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

  • Bent Rasmussenexoteric stuck in a loop, for a while

    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.

  • martinminemartinmine I eat C# for breakfast

    Wow! This show is really great! I can't belive that so few watch it, need to tell my friends about this Wink 

    Its great that you are nautral in the MS vs Apple thing, because if you did, this place would be trolled down!

    Need to start build Lego-robots aggain since I learned how to do programming the last few years Big Smile

    Have a nice summer!

  • Yes, there is a goffy color issue. Whats is up with that, don't you have HD cams with color correct?

  • Yeah, we had something funky going on with the single shot cameras this week....but let's just call it "arty" Smiley

    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.

  • ivan_ivan_ g

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

  • rhmrhm

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

  • ivan_ivan_ g


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

  • William Staceystaceyw Before C# there was darkness...

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

  • Jerrell TaylorOutsider1969 wisdom rocks!

    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)
