A Lot Of Windows 7 Goodness

Mobile World Congress is happening at the moment, and it’s really exciting in terms of what’s being announced for WP7, including:

But don’t hold your breath – I fully expected the first WP7 update for Copy Paste to land at the end of 2010…then January…then February…and finally now we have a concrete “date range” of the first two weeks of March…so all the awesome videos you just watched won’t probably mean anything to real consumers until much later this year.

None of this probably would have happened without twitter – NZStuff put out a request for music, and I just happened to follow them on twitter, and sent the details on, and voila there you go – all parties involved win. I used to really think Twitter was a really dumb medium (140 characters?!), but the sheer real-time and collaborative nature of it, as you can see, is effective.

Awesome times!
