Tell me it does something cool with Kinect. I don't even care what.

And integration with Lync and Skype for presence.

Oooooh, and I hope it works with TouchDevelop.

Windows + Mac: Virtualization Commented on: 8 weeks ago (October 20, 2014)

Does Windows 8 running in Parallels/Fusion on OS X support Client Hyper-V?

I'm not considering an obscure Russian-doll use case, but Visual Studio runs the Windows Phone device emulator via...

Bing Apps Rebranded as MSN, Will Move Cross-Platform This Year Commented on: 14 weeks ago (September 8, 2014)

Great news. Will this allow iOS/Android accessories to feed data into the Health & Fitness app?

What about Reading List? I know it wasn't strictly speaking a Bing app, but having that...

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1: First Impressions Commented on: 19 weeks ago (August 5, 2014)
