Building Windows 8 - the follow-up

I've gone back and taken a look at the Building Windows 8 blog, and here's a brief update.

It has, as expected, a real techie focus, lots of questions about supporting USB 3 etc. And unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much user centric dia/mono-logue going on (based on what I've seen).

One takeout is SkyDrive and extending "Windows 8" apps to the cloud.

Thought for the week

"Thinking is skilled work. It is not true that we are naturally endowed with the ability to think clearly and logically - without learning how or without practising."
