My few seconds of fame

Microsoft PDC 10 is on today and tomorrow and I just had to ask this question about the YouTube client on the live broadcast. And yes, there is not a dedicated YouTube client for the Windows Phone 7 yet. Just the generic video player that launches when a youtube link is detected.

I have created a web comic about gadgets. I’ve used the WordPress opensource platform with the ComicPress theme. Ilias Sounas (www.sounasdesign.com) provides the cartoon drawing, while I come up with most of the stories. Feel free to browse it every week or so and have fun!
