Microsoft Conference Call

January 31, 2008

This is the funniest video I’ve seen in ages.  And for the record, yes that’s actually the conference calling system we use.  And admittedly yes, I’ve done the same groove out. 


Probably more inside joke than anything but my 4 yo keeps asking "Play it again Dad, play it again!"

Kudos to the guys from Nashville.  Glad to see the fun is still alive.

Congrats to the Xbox 360 and Zune teams (notably known for their membership in the Entertainment & Devices Division.)

Having reported here my frustration with AT&T and Samsung’s silence, it would appear Sammy just released the Windows Mobile 6 update for owners of the Samsung Blackjack mobile phone, months after the BlackJack II went on sale with WM6 pre-installed and nearly a year since its announce.  Note that you will need WinXP or lower OS to do the update.  What’s interesting is that Samsung is not only making this available, but noting it is "highly recommended to be installed":

Samsung has released a software upgrade for the BlackJack, which is highly recommended to be installed. This update includes an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.0 and numerous enhancements/corrections. The update may take up to 10 minutes to complete if the system is already set up.
