Cool App

Was watching the CNBC Bill Gates talk. He foresees  Win CE / Mobile as a potential product from Microsoft in near time( by potential i mean something like XP). While watching him say about camera stuff on smartphones, a very smart idea for an app took birth. Imagine a web service that can give all the historical monument info by taking its picture as input. So you go to Statue of liberty, click its pic, process it locally( as can be given to the web service) and send it OTA. The web service in response to the pic sends back a whole book worth of info to you. Pretty cool Nah!

Think over it….

Your stats

Check it out…..Works fine????





Heard about it at the techEd. Came across nice tutorial in the WHIDBEY release notes. Indigo as MSDN says is the new standard for building and running connected systems. Like previous distributed technologies like web services, Remoting, MSMQ etc, it is a Service oriented programming model built on .NET framework. Will be available for Longohorn natively, and requires some SDKs( right?) for win XP and server 2003 development.

Sounds like next big thing!

So, while reading Paul Yao’s( great guy to meet) master piece, I came across this info that windows CE is being presently used by Intermec, Psion Teklogix, Symbol Tech for board scanners. By Viewsonic, Philips and Silicon on displays and by BMW( with help from Siemens VDO), Citroen, Fiat, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Toyota and Volvo in AMobiles. Hope the VxW guy reads this!:-)

MS TechEd Over!

So the TechEd 2005 at New Delhi was over today with hands on sessions which were good. Ravi Soin from Microsoft Redmond was found to be the most active tutor! Was good. So, alls well that ends well is all what I can say right now (tired hell) . Next update soon !!



Microsoft TechED 2005 great question

From past two days, I have been attending each track of the Mobile and Embedded devices group talks and in crux it was , Mind Boggling! The intensity with which Windows Mobile and CE is shooting ahead is tremendous. People from the globe were discussing how is Windows CE better than vox 330 or RTLinux. The guy giving talk on win CE was Asang Dani from Kanetkars insti in Nagpur – Dcube s/w I suppose.( former Dow Jones and Microsoft Employee). A VxW employee buckled him at the point that is Windows CE a Hard or a Soft RTOS and he was  like……. I took pleasure in clarifying and told him that Windows CE Automobile edition is on way now and is already being used by Lego robots…..Again he asked the same question. I wonder how smart employees VxW has. Its catastrophic for a Robot to have a soft RTOS !( Am I right? – comments appreciated)
