The second release of a Platform Preview (PP) for Internet Explorer 10 is now available. In this PP2, the IE team has implemented a very big number of new site-ready HTML5 technologies and continued working on improving performance. As a web of front-end developer, you can now download this standalone version, test the features, play with it and give feedback back to Microsoft.
Some of the new technologies include:
Furthermore, Microsoft continues working on experimental standards by providing Prototypes through HTML5 Labs. This is the case for IndexedDB, WebSockets, Media Capture API and FileAPI, which has now been added to IE10 PP2.

Microsoft today released the Kinect for Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) that will allow academics and enthusiasts alike to be part of the movement. No doubt that this will help turning creative ideas into apps.
The Kinect for Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) allows developers to plug the Kinect sensor—and the in-depth stream of 3-D imagery it gets from its camera—directly into a Windows-based PC. This gives developers access to the "raw sensor streams" in Kinect, including its high-performance skeletal-tracking capabilities, a sophisticated microphone array, and sample code to demonstrate how to use the sensor.
The release of the Kinect for Windows SDK shows Microsoft's deep support for developers and innovation, particularly in the area of natural user interface (NUI). The beta Kinect for Windows SDK is just a "starter" for non-commercial purposes—Microsoft is developing a more detailed commercial kit that will let third parties develop using Kinect. This will allow people to create any number of uses for Kinect hardware and software and, with Microsoft's license, repackage and sell those uses. This release of the Kinect for Windows SDK is about "unlocking the ecosystem, inspiring innovation, and creating a new Kinect-based enterprise market for Microsoft down the road.
