    A cool idea for the Microsoft Trifecta....

    It dawned on me today: the Cloud can do some cool things. One of which is file synchronization.

    Then it hit me like a rock today listening to music on my Windows Phone, why can't I listen to a song on my Windows Phone, pause it, and then continue listening to that song on my Windows PC? Or, hypothetically if I had an Xbox, why can't I listen to that song on my Xbox? And not just songs, but video as well.

    You can stream music, video or pictures to XBOX360 with TVersity, Windows itself, or many other apps.

    True, but this would be native on all platforms. For example, I would need additional apps to do all that with different platforms, and as Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, and Xbox "720" are theoritically to be united; it would make sense for that to happen natively. I could use my SkyDrive and stream all that, but then I need to find the song in the Zune Software and continue to play that song. But it can't continue playing what my Windows Phone was going to play.

Cool use for Chrome App Shortcuts
I've just started fiddling with Chrome App shortcuts and come up with something like this (it's not as good as the IE version, but still, notice the FB/Twitter/8 Forums tiles): 2562 To get this to work you just need to make sure you pin the app to the start menu. :)
