But still no Ari Bixhorn blog. As a VB guy I'd like to hear what he says, instead of waiting for VBTV
to come back.
I've only excluded those, who don't have RSS feeds, which is a pitty, but there is sure somebody who can enhance the file, maintain it and redistribute it. Take the pick of your personal msft celeb and subscribe to thier feeds.

Brian Jepson points to a great link talking about how much development for the Compact .NET Framework rocks (compared to developing Java solutions for mobile platforms).
Having just started playing around the CF and especially the CF on the Smartphone 2003 platform, I'd have to say that this had better give a kick in the pants to the J2ME people. Having recently been looking at different mobile development technologies, the CF is much easier to get your app up and running in a small amount of time. I tried doing Symbian Dev C++ on my P800 and J2ME on the P800/Nokia 3650 only to be thwarted by frustration with the lack of well integrated tools. Setup's for each of the platforms were the worst ( with Symbian taking the cake here ) and the lack of some good integrated tools killed me. As an aside not I did NOT try the Codewarrior tools as I had a very small budget, hopefully someone can enlighten me.
Leveraging my knowledge of Winform app dev, it was very easy to get acquainted with the CF. You'll just need to understand the limitations between the full Framework and the CF ( controls, certain class in the BCL are not availible ) and of course screen sizes. And of course we haven't even touched the power of using ASP.Net to deliver mobile web apps that target a specific device.
All in all I'm getting more and more excited about the Mobile development arena. Using the CF has become my number one priority in my off time and I hope to release more apps that target this platform and specifically the SmartPhone devices.
/me climbs off the soap box.
Here are some screenshots from my demo app for blogging from a Smartphone. This is a complete managed app utilizing the Compact Framework. Now if only someone *cough*MSFT*cough* could send me a smartphone development kit so I can test it on a real device that would be great.

Guess where I'm posting this from?
the peeps over at dotnetdn.com have an article up detailing how to do compact framework development withOUT vs.net. check it out here

would put it: "Go get your mobile development on!"
The Smartphone 2003 SDK enables application development for the newest Smartphone development platform. With the Smartphone 2003 SDK, developers can build Microsoft .NET Compact Framework applications for Smartphone, leverage the new Windows CE .NET 4.2 Operating System and accelerate development, testing and deployment with emulator enhancements.

Google now has a built-in calculator.
"The calculator can evaluate mathematical expressions involving basic arithmetic (5+2*2 or 2^20), more complicated math (sine(30 degrees) or e^(i pi)+1), units of measure and conversions (100 miles in kilometers or 160 pounds * 4000 feet in Calories), and physical constants (1 a.u./c or G*mass of earth/radius of earth^2."
