WP7 and using hardware search from IE

Kudos to my friend Kristofer who just hinted me about a nice feature that I didn’t know of.

  1. Browse to a page in IE
  2. Tap on any word to mark/highlight the word
  3. Hit the Hardware Search button on the phone

You can read about the full set of features of Microsoft Silverlight 5 here.

One thing that bothers me is the extensive focus Microsoft seems to have on HTML5 and Javascripts, it’s starts to be hard to give customers a good answer on what technology they should invest in. Should they go for Silverlight or HTML5 or … I guess time will tell what happens.

Returning to Sin City!!

Last year I had the opportunity to attend the awesome conference MIX10 in Las Vegas. Fortunately for me I’ll be attending this year as well! Wohoo!!

I’m traveling with Johan and Viktor from Avanade, and hopefully I’ll be able to show them the best parts of Las Vegas, Sin City!

Hopefully I’ll have time to do some blogging about the sessions I attend as well. :)
