Rocking the Press Pass at Tech.Ed NZ

Tech Ed OpeningIt’s all Microsoft, all the time on Ben.geek.nz at the moment. Last week it was a week of brain-bending SharePoint training with Steve Smith from Combined Knowledge. This week I’m working with Mauricio from Geekzone on the Unnoficial Tech.Ed Blog.

We’re recording videos with some key people at Tech.Ed, and will be uploading them over the coming days. Personally I’m chatting to Loke Uei Tan from the Windows Mobile team; Solution architect and Enterprise Library maven Tom Hollander; and local Xero hero Kirk Jackson.

The most interesting bit so far has been chatting to Loke Uei about the impending Windows Mobile Marketplace. There’s no avoiding the obvious comparisons with the iTunes App store, but Microsoft appear to be getting off on the right foot by publishing all of their content and application policy guidelines from the outset. This will hopefully avert the issue where developers create applications, only to have them rejected at the review stage.

  1. Just acquired a Mythic for myself and will probably be receiving 1 for my wife quickly! It has just the suitable mix of attributes. just short of the total smartphone. I’m keeping an eye within the Captivate for any possible long term phone..
    .costs are way as well great when released. I’ve been in high tech for 20+ many years and generally hack every little thing I own to make it far better laptops, GPS, automobile navigation methods, and so on. and yes cell phones as well. Inside number of days I’ve owned the phone I’ve currently set up Opera Mini, Bolt 2.1, freecaddie, Google Maps w/GPS functionality, deleted all locked useless apps soon after backing them up and completely modified the menu technique to my exact wants devoid of all unproductive apps.
