      Silverlight 5 is released and no mention on Channel 9. Sad, very sad Sad

      @nesher: Yeah I hear you... The thing is that SL5 was released after the show was recorded, which usually happens on Thursday (SL5 was released mid-day Friday), so the show can be edited, encoded, show notes done, published, etc by Friday/Saturday.

      But the SL5 story IS the top story for next week... Smiley

      From one of the creators, it is signal R (like a pirate).

      @David Fowler: Doh! It looks like our second guess was wrong, thanks for the correction!

      Is the liveSDK "live"?  Can it be used for production WP7 apps now?

      Jenson's "8 traits" session at BUILD has had the Windows 8 app store sales projections, as quoted here (01:53) redacted.

      The figures are wrong. "point zero five" 0.05 "million dollars" is incorrect.

      $1 app gives a margin of about 70c (ignoring MS bonus efficiencies), so a market share of 0.05% gives 200,000 units sold and $140,000.00 profit.

      I think the speech writer didn't realise that 0.05 is actually 5%, since all the math is out by a factor of 10.
