    When I began using Windows 8, I immediately encountered a problem with the RTM build. Well, not really a problem, more like a distaste. Love or hate Metro, the desktop styles have been striped of their glass, something I'm not a fan of. Sure, glass probably wastes battery life, but I'm on a desktop here, and would really enjoy the choice of having it. Oh well, that's a project for another day. But at least the desktop matches the flat, Metro appearance, right?

    In previous installments of this series, I described the importance of decoupling the components of an application to make the application easier to unit test, maintain and extend. I also showed how adding design-time data makes it easier to work in Expression Blend or the Visual Studio designer in a visual manner.

    In this article, I take a closer look at one of the important components of any Model-View-ViewModel application: the command. Historically, the .NET Framework has always been an event-based framework: a class exposes an event that is raised by the class instances when subscribers need to be notified. On the other hand, the subscribers provide an EventHandler, which is typically a method with two parameters: the sender of the event and an instance of a class deriving from EventArgs. When the event is raised, the event-handling method is executed and the EventArgs instance carries additional information (if available) about what caused the event in the first place.

    In the blog post Diving Deep with Await and WinRT, we discussed the new async and await keywords in C# and Visual Basic and how you can use them to consume Windows Runtime (WinRT) asynchronous operations.

    With some assistance from the .NET Base Class Libraries (BCL), you can also use these keywords to develop asynchronous operations that are then exposed via WinRT for other components built in other languages to consume. In this post, we’ll explore how to do so. (For overall details on implementing WinRT components with C# or Visual Basic, see Creating Windows Runtime Components in C# and Visual Basic.)

    Just like the rest of the Windows Phone 7 world, particularly the development community, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of Mango since its announcement early this year. I installed build 7661 when it was released to registered developers in late June as well as the subsequent 7712 build released several days ago and it has certainly lived up to my expectations.

    Read the original post at CNet.

    Intel is offering more specifics on the features of future Windows 8 tablet at a conference in Beijing. It's a laudable goal, but can Intel make it happen this year?

    Underneath the glass will be beat an Atom Z2760 "Clover Trail" chip: dual-core capable with "burst mode" (for quick bursts of performance when needed) and Hyperthreading -- the latter allows a dual-core chip to behave in quad-core-like fashion in some cases.

    I'm a Windows Phone 7 user and I really like it so far, I like the Metro UI. What a introduction sentence for a mainly negatively post about the differentiation of Apps, isn't it? I write this here, because it starts to get boring, nearly all apps that using Pivot are black & white? Not that I don't like the simplicity but I think that doesn't mean to only use mainly 2 colors and these color on nearly every app in the Marketplace.

    Read original post by Michael Washington at LightSwitch Help Website

    When deploying a LightSwitch web based application, the easiest method is to use the Publishing Wizard. However, the server that will host the LightSwitch application has to have the prerequisites installed.

    LightSwitch creates a normal ASP.NET application that launces a Silverlight application, so it is possible to package in a way that allows a person to simply FTP it to a server, and then run a wizard through their web browser to configure it. This method is used by applications such as DotNetNuke and ADefHelpDesk for years.

    Here is one great article by Bonnie Cha who explains what to expect from Windows Phone 7.

    Source: CNET

    In February 2010, Microsoft introduced Windows Phone 7 to the world. A complete overhaul of the company's mobile operating system, Microsoft got the tech world excited about it again with its fresh user interface, added features, and promises of improved performance. We've had to wait a long nine months since then to see if Windows Phone 7 actually delivers everything it promises, but we finally got a chance to find out.

    In this post Gill Cleeren demonstrates how to create an application that works together with the services API exposed by Bing.com.

    Bing has a very rich API that we can use to incorporate search functionalities in our applications, including Silverlight applications. It allows us to use WCF (SOAP) and REST communication, because it exposes endpoints for both these technologies. In this particular example, I’m using the SOAP interface for communication using a WCF service. To get a complete overview of the functionalities, you can download the PDF describing the entire API at http://www.bing.com/developers/s/API%20Basics.pdf . It also contains some sample code.
