There was always going to be a downside to allowing Disney to develop a wireless signal booster
I knew this dream was a little to life-like. How can I make a distraction with these!? Where's Mickey when I need him?
This Silverlight app sends gesture data from my Windows Phone 7 over Azure ServiceBus and lets me control the cursor on my tablet like a crazy mini mouse!
Leaked pictures reveal why Microsoft chose not to enforce video calling on WP7
"Mickey was coming up the stairs. Quick, what should Minnie hide...her embarassing gadgets...or her awesome Marc Holmes costume?!"
Here Marc Holmes is attempting to hack into Disneyland's MF via the facial recognition services. Minimum Speck for Camera's on the new WP7 make this impossible. Another great security improvement.
Our competitors may have improved on the original Windows Mobile. They may have copied our Tablet PC idea. But they will never EVER better Microsoft Windows Ears 7.
What the hell is this phone all about? Not an apple, not a blackberry so definately not in the fruit domain, doesnt look like an android and definately is not from this symbian...hmm I think i will fire up my laptop and google it.....oh hang on I can get online from this device... wow...should run and tell Micky all about it..
Right, hopefully these silly ears and lumberjack shirt can buy me enough time to get this damn thing working!
Dude, what's this stuff in my hands, whose shirt is this?!
I went to #ukpdc10 yesterday, can't remember much but my hearing is a lot better this morning.
This phone doesn't look right though, looks exactly like my old phone.
Marc should have gone to specsavers for his glasses, thankfully he went to Microsoft for his Windows.
It's time iPAQ'd this in and got some stylii by moving into the 21st Century with Windows Phone 7....!
If only there was a phone that could do this all for me, then I wouldn't need so many devices ;-) @DDreaper
Really? Really? ...... Really?
My new Windows Phone 7 is awesome, everything I needed these crappy things for is now in the palm of my hand. And it's sexy too!.... But not as sexy as mini mouse ears... Oooo yea!
