Now that LightSwitch in Visual Studio 2012 supports the ability to consume OData feeds, there are a wide variety of feeds that can be used to build interesting LightSwitch applications, ranging from NetFlix to Dynamics CRM.  However, it’s important to remember that all feeds are not equal – each one may have varying levels of support for the underlying OData query operators that LightSwitch applications rely on.  Behind the scenes, LightSwitch makes various optimizations to make it easier to consume these feeds.  To find out more, refer to my recent blog post called "LightSwitch OData Consumption Validation in Visual Studio 2012".
