Recap: Sonos, Pandora, and Xbox LIVE on Windows Phone

August 29, 2010

A few updates from around the Web for this weekend:

  • Sonos is working on their iPad application, but has delayed release from August to September.  Launch at CEDIA Expo 2010 imminent?  What’s not imminent is an Android-based version of the Sonos controller app currently available for iPhone, confirmed by Dave Zatz.  Here’s to hoping Windows Phone 7 gets in the mix.
  • Pandora recently launched Genre-based channels.  This service keeps getting better and better. 80′s Pop or Today’s Hits? Works with Sonos too.
  • Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone 7 has announced the initial lineup of games.  A few weeks ago my friend Kevin Unangst showed me a preview of what’s to come and I’m impressed by the portfolio.  Here a video overview:
  • Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is next weekend here in Seattle. I’ll be going on Sunday if others are interested in a meetup.
  • Windows Live Sync becoming Windows Live Mesh, upping from 2G to 5GB of space.  It’s a start folks, but I for one want 25GB to backup my photo library and would pay for it.
