      I actually win something and it ends up being because it's one of those everyone wins kinda things Smiley


      One question, Dan. How are you going to know if the people e-mailing you are actually the people who posted the images?

      I have no clue which e-mail address I used to sign up for C9 many years ago so I'm going to e-mail you from my dentaku.web account on gmail.


      Clint, I COULD have animated it but I don't think C9 supports animated .GIFs

      all these mistakes from dan this show - maybe the effect of the holiday


      any way some comments


      1-youtube vs azure : i can assume that azure will be better but will it be free as youtube ?if it is free this is great


      2-so is this new reader from CES a way to compete againest kindle?


      and i really missed your contest

      if i knew that i will get office 2007 for free i would've done it


      ok new lesson to me to enter any contest you make


      thank you so much for the show

      Yeah, I definitely felt rusty, it must have been the vacation Smiley


      Azure does cost money so no, it's not free. A fair comparison for Azure is Amazon's S3 storage and Azure isn't trying to be a YouTube service the way the now-discontinued Soapbox service was.


      As for Blio versus Kindle, the Blio hardware hasn't been released so it's really the Blio versus Kindle software and the Blio team is betting that customers will prefer richness (color, interactivity) over the current Kindle experience.
