What’s new in Silverlight This Week in Silverlight

Recorded October 22, 2010

This week we try something new.  Erik calls Kelly and does a speed round to figure out what’s the matter with Microsoft these days?  Why is Apple doing everything right?  All in 7 minutes.

Chatting with Kelly

  • Apple’s boring events are turing out some cool stuff.  As an example, they just announced an app store for the desktop.
  • Microsoft’s PDC conference.  Any chance they’ll release an app store?
  • What else was great about Apple’s “boring” event?
  • Windows Phone 7 is a bright spot.  Is it the only bright spot at Microsoft right now?
  • The HP Slate 500.  It’s a turkey.  Everyone knows it.  Why does this keep happening?
  • Will Windows Phone 7 work on tablet devices?
  • How are Scott Barnes and Edward Tufte the same?
