  • Blog Post: Zune HD Touch Programming with XNA

    Even though I’m in love with my Zune 120, when I learned that I could be writing multi-touch games in XNA for the Zune HD, it didn’t take much to convince me (the recent price drop plus Bing cash back helped, too).  I probably would have bought one even sooner if the Newark airport had them in their...
  • Blog Post: Windows Phone 7 Series – Free Dev Tools and Support for MIX attendees

    I know we’ve all been calling it the Zune Phone for a while now, but whatever it is it’s public news and it’s gorgeous.  I’ve been getting a few questions about writing applications for it, so I thought I’d throw this out there.  MIX is traditionally a conference for web developers and designers...

  • Blog Post: The. Red. Polo.

    I just realized that a red polo means something different in Ireland than it does in the US, doesn’t it?  We may have to temporarily rename Scott Guthrie’s red polo while he’s here in Dublin in two weeks. I loved this video that Scott created of his talk preparations for MIX 09 this year. ...
