In many respects is not really fair to compare these two products, as they are mostly targeted toward two different markets, however, the HP Slate 500 is the best offering that Microsoft and it’s partners have put forward to compete head-on with Apple and the rapidly growing tablet/slate market. As way of background I have been a Windows Tablet PC user ......

It's hard to believe October was the last time I was over here on my blog. Ironically after getter the developer phone from Microsoft I have been knee deep in iPhone programming and for the past few weeks Android programming again. This time I've spent all my non-working hours programming a fun project for my "other" website, Disneyland Inside Out. ......

If you are one of the numerous PDC10 attendees moving your iPhone SIM to your free LG-E900 Windows Phone 7, and you're on AT&T, you may have noticed the minute you lost WiFi coverage your data stopped as well. If you read through the paperwork that comes with the phone there was a quick little note that says "you may need to manually configure your ......

I spent a few hours today and hacked, and I do mean hacked, together a quick iPhone App to consume the OData feed for PDC 2010. Since the turnaround is way to quick to push something like this through the app store, I've pushed to code up to github for anyone to download and play with. You can access it at: http://github.com/oofgeek/P... ......

For about 5 years now I’ve been carrying around the best recent TechEd bag; the messenger style bag from 2005. It served me well as it could easily carry 2 laptop’s, plus loads of additional tech gear; iPad, multiple external hard drives, cables, etc. My only dislike of the bag was that the strap never seemed that sturdy, and I occasionally had issues ......

This is good to know, strange solution but it works: http://social.msdn.microsof... I created an Interface that my Linq to SQL classes implement so that I can create a generic function that will work across a few tables. When I used the double equals (==) instead of the .Equals() in ......

While building our mobile app I came across a few valuable resources for some of the specific issues I was facing, I thought I'd share those in case others were looking for similar info. Customized Color Progress Bar iPhone This one probably violates all UI rules defined by Apple, but we were looking to change the color of the progress bar for our app ......

While working to get the AutoCompleteExtender control up and running in a custom DNN module, I ran across a forum post that said doing so "just works", which if you have previous ASP.NET AJAX experience and know what is and isn't in DNN is probably very true. Trying to get it to run for the first time though, there's a few items to be aware of. Getting ......

Over the past few months I had the great opportunity to tackle the challenge of learning both the iPhone and Android mobile platforms for the first time as a developer. I had used both previously as a consumer, so it was interesting to finally get a chance to jump in with both feet for a work project. I have been focused on .NET development in C# for ......

I've been running various versions of Live Mesh and Live Sync on my Mac over the past year. So far I haven't been terribly happy with Live Mesh, but it got the job done, albeit very slowly at times. I'm am very exited at what I am seeing though in the latest Windows Live Sync beta for both Windows and Mac OS X. When installing the latest version of ......

In the past few months I've had the great opportunity to learn both the iPhone and Android platforms for an App we built for my 9 to 5 job. This was a great new chance to learn brand new languages and frameworks after 8 years of living in the Microsoft world. I'll get to more of the specifics in later posts. In order to validate some of our platform ......

If you are trying to setup a blog in SharePoint and want to aggregate its feed to a parent site, you’ll find that if you’re using NTLM you’ll get the following error: The RSS webpart does not support authenticated feeds This seems frustrating at first as you begin to wonder why you can create a blog, add RSS feed viewers, but can’t combine the two. ......

In case you happen to be needing to do host headers with a wildcard SSL Certificate, here is the article from Microsoft on how to do it in IIS 6: http://www.microsoft.com/te... The basic command line call is: cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set /w3svc/<site identifier>/SecureBindings ......

We are working through a beta release of an internal project so I'm getting a chance to solve many different problems right now. Today I had to update a report that has an issue where its count at the bottom was displaying the total number or records instead of just those that were visible. Basically this is a report of applicants who have passed all ......

In developing one of our new applications I ran into an interesting issue with the DataGridView, which contained a DropDown (ComboBox) column that was bound to a different BindingSource. The basic issue is that the user would click a LinkButton and select a file. That process would create a new instance of an object on the backend, which would be added ......
