Recently, while working on my Windows Phone 7.5 book, I found the need to display a short URL to some specific documentation. I found that you could use msdn.com to do this but the results were not very satisfying. In fact, if you take a typical documentation ID (e.g. “ff402535”), you can simply do this:
This works but takes you to a simple page that reformats the topic instead of the full MSDN documentation. I didn’t like that solution so I registered http://msdnlink.net. With this new address you can do the same thing:
I was asked at a recent Silverlight Meetup what happened to me? He was concerned that I was sick or something worse so I thought it was worth a post.
As many of you, my readers, did today I watched the MIX 11 Keynote with much interest about what the messaging around Silverlight 5 would be. Let me start out by saying that I am pretty invested in Silverlight (see my new Pluralsight course as an example of this).
I've been looking at a lot of applications on the Windows Phone 7 platform since even before launch. It seems that a lot of the apps out there need polish to make them easy to use. I've put together my ten top annoyances when trying out new application on my Windows Phone 7.

I am writing a new Windows Phone 7 application called GooNews to show Google News in an application for the phone. I am writing this application because I needed an app like this. Being able to keep up with news (and create news categories based on keywords) is key to what I wanted to get on my phone. I tried a lot of the other apps out there and when I didn't find what I wanted, I decide to build it myself.
