    Who won the scrabbel game?


    @Paul: It's the Windows Phone MarketPlace Tongue Out

  • Paul chickened out. I would destroy him.

    I don't think it did that kind of ads, you must the parental filter turned off Paul.

    Don't listen to Laura's blasphemy.  I could beat her left-handed.

  • CKurtCKurt while( ( !​succeed=try​() ) ) { }

    We demand a game of scrabble in the next show Tongue Out

  • O.K.  How does one obtain one of those little 9 guys?  Many years ago I obtained a SQL Server Girl from attending several online events.  Sadly I cannot find an image at the moment, but the design is simular to the 9 guy.

  • hotmail started in 95, who has the oldest hotmail address ? I still use mine and I made mine in 98, April.

    Good question, Shahedk!  I will look into this... but I had received a memo that had this line in it...

    • "This is not just for fun, its serious business; students can not only deploy WP7 apps on Marketplace for free, but earn some extra cash off of it."

    ... perhaps some marketing person went overboard... stay tuned.

  • rhmrhm

    The tools for WP7 are free for all anyway so they wouldn't be covered by the Dreamspark licence I'd have though.

  • It's true:


    1. Students can build and deploy apps to Windows Phone Marketplace for free through DreamSpark (US and other selected areas)
  • Finally! Some SQL Server news!

    PASS is a great event. I will not be able to participate this year although i won a free ticket...


    Paul - throw us a bone here, which session were you talking about?


  • rhmrhm

    Apple stole the name of your show. You should sue!

  • Greg Braygbrayut Check out PhraseMeme Scanner for Windows Phone at ​PhraseMeme.​com

    Ha! Channel 9 Ping beats Apple Ping any day in my book. And why do they have it built into the iTunes application instead of a browser? Most people I know love iPods but hate the iTunes app. Besides, Zune has had something like this for a few years. I guess Apple wants to try to control your social network too Tongue Out

  • And Max thought Ping was a stupid name! hrmph~

  • Hey, Laura! Did you hear about the new social network that Apple announced? Not a very original name, huh?


    BTW, I love your show--the original Ping. I watch it on my Zune HD every week. Keep up the good work!


    Edit: I guess you already did. I just read the posts before mine. LOL
