Oh, sweet Jesus! I’ve been running WP 7.5 on my Samsung Omnia but that feels terribly outdated now. Having checked out both Nokias and Samsungs devices I’m leaning toward the Samsung.
At the moment there are lots of stuff happening, both in our industry and at home.
This week I’ve started programming PowerShell seriously, trying to convert an “advanced” script to PowerShell since it’s supposed to be fewer lines of code. I bet it is, once you get past the initial irritation… Like why can’t I set the error message that validateset throws? Would’ve been nice.
If you’re a programmer you might wanna check out the developer resources for Mango over at Channel 9: http://channel9.msdn.com/posts/Mango-Jump-Start-01-Building-Windows-Phone-Apps-with-Visual-Studio-2010
Speaking of Channel 9 you could also take a look at the behind-the-scenes to see what’s going on over there: http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-20103036-75/behind-the-scenes-at-microsofts-channel-9/
Apart from that I’m just as curious as everyone else about Microsofts new initiative with Hyper-V in Windows 8, which most likely will take the market away from Parallells and VmWare workstation. And hopefully kill that thing called XP-mode which is totally hopeless. Read more over at Building 8: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2011/09/07/bringing-hyper-v-to-windows-8.aspx
At home we’ve bought a new apartment and selling the old one. You know the drill: Take 50% of the furniture away, clean. Take pictures. Wait, wait some more and so on. So that’s where my heads been at lately. I’ll be back with a vengeance.
Don’t miss todays press conference on Windows Phone 7.5. You can follow it live over at http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/presskits/windowsphone/ at 16:00.
Some of the rumours are integration with Office365 and Skydrive… Maybe they’ve gotten the Skype-client ready too?
