  • Blog Post: 15Mb FIOS installed... sort of

    Two weeks ago, I received some marketing stuff from Verizon about their new FIOS offering. Three choices - 5Mb, 15Mb, and 30Mb. There was only a few dollar difference between 5 and 15Mb, so I opted for more speed. Go figure. I've been waiting for this to be real since last year, when they dug up the...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Technology Summit 2005

    I've been in Redmond since Monday this week at an event focused around "competitive influentials." This event is the creative brainchild of one of my Developer Evangelist (DE) peers in the Central Region, Steve Loethen, and Heidi Dill, our developer marketing manager based in Redmond. DE's from districts...
  • Blog Post: Windows XP Media Center Edition

    Thankfully, my UltimateTV's tuner started to die, and my wife got annoyed enough to let me replace it with an Windows XP Media Center 2005 box. I had certain operational parameters, however. First, since it was going in the family room, it could not look like a PC. That's grounds for unending huffing...
  • Blog Post: Code Camp: Greater PA

    There was some great stuff done by Thom Robbins, one of my teammates in the East Region (up in Waltham, MA), with Code Camp II ( http://weblogs.asp.net/trobbins/archive/2004/10/21/246018.aspx ).

  • Blog Post: Microsoft Global Briefing (MGB) 2004 ROCKS!

    Microsoft is a company that demands great things from you, and you have to work hard. They also make sure that they take care of you here. I'm at the Microsoft Global Briefing (last week and until Tuesday), and while we had some long days and bad cases of numb-butt from the chairs, tonight we had some...
  • Blog Post: Cellular One submits bid for AT&T Mobile

    This should be interesting... I wonder if I'll get a better signal if this bid is accepted, or if I'll have a better chance at having my MPX200 upgraded to SmartPhone 2003? http://www.reuters.com/financeNewsArticle.jhtml;jsessionid=EKUX3NLN02O10CRBAELCFEY?type=businessNews&storyID=4167476
  • Blog Post: Xbox Media Center Extender Kit

    Yet another use for the Xbox, and one that my wife will actually allow in the house. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/mediacenter/evaluation/devices/xboxextenderkit.asp
  • Blog Post: Motorola MPX200 SmartPhone with AT&T

    For various reasons, I stopped service with my PocketPC Phone and started service with AT&T and got a Motorola MPX200 SmartPhone. Nice and small, and very easy to operate with one hand. The more I use it, the more I like it. Smart stuff includes things like integration between the calendar and phone...
  • Blog Post: Windows Media Center

    One of our managers brought his latest toy into the office today. It was Gateway's top of the line model of the Media Center PC. Very cool stuff. Wide, flat screen. Speakers built in, including subwoofer. The PC guts are built into the neck of the monitor for a sweet design. Keyboard and mouse are...
